The Pennsylvania Conference is committed to providing young people with opportunities to grow in their relationship with Christ and providing training so young people can serve God with their unique gifts and abilities through ministries like staffing our summer camp program and Pennsylvania Youth Challenge. We desire to see our youth become an army of workers, impacting Pennsylvania and the world, as Ellen White describes in Counsels to Teachers, Parents, and Students, (p. 555), With such an army of workers as our youth, rightly trained, might furnish, how soon the message of a crucified, risen, and soon-coming Saviour might be carried to the whole world! How soon might the end come–the end of suffering and sorrow and sin! How soon, in place of a possession here, with its blight of sin and pain, our children might receive their inheritance where “the righteous shall inherit the land, and dwell therein forever”; where “the inhabitant shall not say, I am sick,” and “the voice of weeping shall be no more heard.”
