This department oversees Youth, Pathfinders, Adventurers, Camping, Young Adults and Public Campus Ministry for the churches and schools of the North American Division. We mobilize large networks of empowered local leaders for each of these ministry disciplines. We oversee the development of products, training, and many other services to assist leaders in accomplishing ministry in their local settings.
“Don’t let anyone look down on you because you are young, but set an example for the believers in speech, in life, in love, in faith and purity” (1 Tim. 4:12, NIV).
“We have an army of youth today who can do much if they are properly directed and encouraged. . . . We want them to be blessed of God. We want them to act a part in well-organized plans for helping other youth.” Ellen G. White
