Pr. Anbudurai Albert

Director, Youth Ministries

Purpose

The history of the Seventh-day Adventist church is replete with evidence of youth being in the forefront of the mission activities of the Advent Movement.
Our pioneers were young when they zealously, proclaimed the second coming of Jesus Christ. The history of the youth department also attests to two youth in their teens-Luther Warren and Harry Fenner; after seeking for God’s guidance, initiated a vibrant youth movement in 1879.
“Let the youth remember that here they are to build characters for eternity, and that God requires them to do their best. Let those older in experience watch over the younger ones; and when they see them tempted, take them aside, and pray with them and for them.” ― Ellen G. White, Messages to Young People, p. 19.
