About Growing Young Adventists

Growing Young Adventists is a learning journey for local churches and leaders helping to build faith communities that will not only survive, but thrive in the years ahead. It is an inter-generational movement nurturing relationship building and cultural transformation that embraces young people and benefits all generations in the Adventist church. #GYA #GrowingYoungAdventists

Let’s make the church the best place for young people to grow.

We want to cheer, support, and resource congregations who desire the vitality of our young people and the great relationships they bring.

  • CHEER: We celebrate great Adventist people in warm churches who are building wholesome, authentic relationships with young people. GYA loves to tell growing young stories.
  • SUPPORT: We nurture Adventist churches and organizations who desire to grow young with the collective experience and shared wisdom of ministry leaders, point people, and passionate volunteers. GYA is here to help.
  • RESOURCE: We equip growing young communities by supplying mentoring, materials, and ministry training that help Adventists love next generations better. GYA has stuff to share.
