Adventist Youth Ministries
in the Greater New York Conference
To train Youth & Young adults to grow in Christ, practice servant leadership and be disciples.
The Mission of the Adventist Youth Ministries of Greater New York Conference is to motivate and train Children, Youth, & Young Adults to live as Jesus lived, mingling with and serving the community to reveal God’s infinite love.
Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation.
~ 2 Cor 5:17
No one has ever seen God; if we love one another, God abides in us and his love is perfected in us.
~ 1 John 4:12
Whoever does not bear his own cross and come after me cannot be my disciple.
~ Luke 14:17
“I am the true vine, and my Father is the vinedresser.”
~ John 15:1
“And I, when I am lifted up from the earth, will draw all people to myself.”
~ John 12:32
Have this mind among yourselves, which is yours in Christ Jesus, who, though he was in the form of God, did not count equality with God a thing to be grasped, but emptied himself, by taking the form of a servant, being born in the likeness of men. And being found in human form, he humbled himself by becoming obedient to the point of death, even death on a cross. Therefore God has highly exalted him and bestowed on him the name that is above every name, so that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.
~ Phil 2:5-11
To the Jews I became as a Jew, in order to win Jews. To those under the law I became as one under the law (though not being myself under the law) that I might win those under the law.
~ 1 Cor 9:20
