Responding to the call of local churches for training and guidance in developing young adult ministry, Young Adult LIFE Tour aims to equip and empower local churches across the North American Division of Seventh-day Adventists [NAD].
“In young adult ministry, it is super important that we continue to innovate forward and not just continue doing what we have been doing,” said Dr. Tracy Wood, NAD Youth and Young Adult Ministry Director. “We must keep pushing outward beyond our natural limits to connect with young adults in ways that will speak their language and connect in their world.”
The Southern Union Young Adult LIFE Tour will be held at the Spring Meadows Seventh-day Adventist Church, 5783 N Ronald Reagan Blvd, Sanford, FL 32773, October 20-21, 2023, with the Friday registration check in beginning at 7:00PM [Eastern]. Free registration at https://tinyurl.com/YALIFEtour
Many church leaders, parents, and adult members are eager to discover ways to engage and empower young adults in ministry and create meaningful bonds with local church life. But so often, they are at a loss as to where to start or how to begin building relationships. The Young Adult LIFE Tour intends to bring insights and relevant, doable steps toward building young adult ministry now. At the October 20-21 tour stop, church members, ministry leaders and young adults from across the Southern Union and the NAD are invited to gather for inspiration and intensive training. Selected presentations will also be streamed live.
For registrants, the tour stop will include practical training, exclusive resources, inspirational worship, ministry networking, Sabbath meals, and much more. Registration is free, https://tinyurl.com/YALIFEtour
