Don’t let anyone look down on you because you are young, but set an example for the believers in speech, in conduct, in love, in faith and in purity.

— 1 Timothy 4:12, NIV

The Seventh-day Adventist movement was started by young people with a vision and passion for a cause. Not only is the church indebted to youth for its beginnings, but it depends on them for its future as well.

The youth department organizes the Adventurer, Pathfinder, and Summer Camp ministries within the Iowa-Missouri Conference and strives to support local churches in their efforts to engage, equip, energize and empower youth in their faith communities.

If you’re a local church youth leader, check out the resources below and let us know how we can support you.

Maintaining a safe environment for our children is a top priority for the Iowa-Missouri Conference. All staff and volunteers working with children must complete a background check.
