Empowering Local Leaders to Disciple Next Generations

In my thirty-one years of serving the church in young adult ministry, I have had the honor of working with the Seventh-day Adventist faith community in every strata of it's organization.--From the local church leader to consulting with the General Conference; from being a campus ministry leader to teaching at the Seventh-day Adventist Theological Seminary; From program directing at summer camp to organizing GODencounters for the General Conference Session--I've enjoyed every facet and have a great appreciation for the system at each strata.

Amidst all the research, development, programming, and initiatives I've seen over these three decades, I've come to one critical criterion question:

"What might be done to help Adventist churches engage and disciple young adults, integrating next generations into the vibrant expression of spiritual community in the local context?"

It is the goal of YG University [YGU] to respond to this question with helpful insights, resources, and conversation that can be used by young adults, ministry leaders, and pastors in the local church. I don't profess to have all the solutions or answers to all the questions, but I do believe that between my academic experience, research interest, and active ministry practice of young adult ministry at Younger Generation Church, there are some things to share.

So here's my commitment: Look regularly for posts here at YGU to share, help, and encourage local young adult ministry. If you've got specific questions or young adult interests, send them my way and I'll do my best to integrate them as I can. My hope is YGU will be helpful, supportive and cheer you. I'm here to be of support and to learn from you along the way as well.

It's my prayer, as a result of our efforts, that next generations will find themselves more deeply devoted to Christ Jesus and committed to His beloved church.

New Year, New Decade: New Adventure for YG

Over the past ten years, Younger Generation Church [YG] has learned a great deal about young adult ministry in the local context. We've experienced great successes and seen our share of failures, but through it all we've been humbled by what GOD has done through YG to deepen the devotion of next generations to Christ Jesus.

As we begin a new decade, we wish to engage with other local churches, ministry leaders, and young adults who share our passion for young adult ministry. It's our hope to learn from others and to share, as open source, YG resources, insights, experiences, expertise, and assets.

It's for this reason YG University [YGU] has been launched. Beyond the important work of weekly young adult ministry, in our local context of the Metroplex and Arlington Seventh-day Adventist Church, YG aspires to be of benefit to the larger sphere of young adult ministry development across the Adventist landscape. We pray it will be a blessing to many others and we are excited for the learning opportunities it will offer us as well.

So here's to the start of a new year and to the start of something new, YGU.
