"My name is Nemo Janga. I was born in India and raised in Kuwait City. My family had to flee back to India during Operation Desert Storm. I moved to the United States when I was 17 years old and a junior in high school. After graduating college with an aircraft maintenance management degree, I started working for American Airlines in Chicago. In 2009, I was given the opportunity to move to Texas to work at the American Airlines headquarters.
I never saw myself moving to Texas because I had no family or friends here, but I reluctantly did. Looking back, it was probably one of the best decisions I’ve ever made. Even after moving here, I would always fly back to Chicago to visit family and go to church.
I tore my ACL playing tennis, and during my recovery after surgery, I found myself browsing through Facebook where I found out about Younger Generation Church. It was one of the best blessings God has ever given me. I’ve been coming here ever since. In March this year, I married my best friend Divya. I love everything about the Arlington Seventh-day Adventist Church. I really love the emphasis this church places on young people. I have an amazing time volunteering with the media ministry, and Divya volunteers with children’s ministry." --Nemo Jenga
"I'm always comfortable bringing a person to Younger Generation Church, whether they're Adventist or not religious at all. I know that YG is consistent and engaging. I know that the music will be on point, the message relevant and understandable, media up to industry standards, and that there will be large swath of young people for me to introduce them to afterwards, complete with refreshments--Most reliable Adventist young adult ministry I've personally encountered.
In general, Arlington is a big church with lots of opportunities, but it has the ability to have a small church feel through YG LIFEgroups. If you want an anonymous church experience, you can do that. Maybe that's what you need at this point--testing the waters. If you want to get involved though, it's extremely easy to do that. Get in touch with a pastor and let them know how you'd like to be plugged in. Once you're plugged in, making lifelong, amazing friendships grounded in Christ is an absolute snap." --M.P.
In addition to those who attend in person, over two hundred locations around the world weekly worship online with Younger Generation Church.
"Watched service online after being invited by Pastor Allan Martin. That service was communion and I have to say. . . that was the best, most memorable, enlightening service of humility I experienced in my life. My 12 yr old daughter enjoyed it as well. All the way from Montreal Canada I felt welcomed, engaged and saw love, fellowship, and a community that believes in doing it right. Praying up your ministry." --Roen Higgins, Montreal, Canada
