Every city, every home, every school, every life…changed by an authentic relationship with Jesus! That is the mission of GSDAC youth ministry. 1 Timothy 4:12 states, “Don’t let anyone think less of you because you are young. Be an example to all believers in what you say, in the way you live, in your love, your faith, and purity.” These words consume who we are as a ministry and we believe that youth are the church of today.

 

We  the youth of Gurnee SDA Church strive to create an environment that embraces every young person who steps into our ministry and extend the hand of grace to each one. It is our desire to create opportunities to connect with other young people in differing gatherings. We believe in large gatherings where we come together to worship the Father and mutually encourage one another but we also value small community groups where mutually lives are shared together. Things are happening in our youth ministry that can only be explained by the outpouring of the Holy Spirit. We believe in and value youth and desire to empower each to live right lives before their Creator and to enjoy HIM forever!
