We, the Youth Directors of the Alberta Conference of the Seventh-day Adventist Church, seek to encourage, empower, and equip youth of today to be revolutionary change agents for Christ.

Through various ministries; such as Master Guides, Pathfinders and Adventurers, Summer Camps, Short Term Missions, Outdoor Ministry, Campus Ministry, Community Service, Youth Evangelism, and others, we hope to inspire the youth to employ FRESH ideas in reaching the world for Christ.

Calgary Regional Youth Rally
On February 17-18, 2017, our regional youth rally will take place at Chinook Winds Adventist Academy in Calgary. Our theme for this year’s regional youth rally in Calgary is called “Identity Theft.” The Bible says,“The thief does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy. I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly” (John 10:10 NKJV). Our speaker is Pastor Eddie Hypolite, he comes to us all the way from Australia.
Even youths grow tired and weary, and young men stumble and fall; but those who hope in the LORD will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.  (Isaiah 40:30-31 NIV)

Fort McMurray Young Adult Weekend
As the Apostle Paul waited for his friends in Athens, he said, "For as I was walking along I saw your many shrines. And one of your altars had this inscription on it: 'To an Unknown God.' This God, whom you worship without knowing, is the one I'm telling you about." (Acts 17:23 NLT) Let's come together to learn how to make our God known on our campuses and in our communities . . .

Global Youth Day 2017
The vision of GYD is to recapture the reality of Adventist youth as a global movement mobilized for service, contributing to the proclamation of the everlasting gospel and ushering in the second coming of Jesus Christ. There is a lot more to religious faith than simply going to church and listening to sermons. The true practice of religion involves the revelation of God’s love in living out Jesus’s gospel commission as He bade us to before He ascended to heaven: through all manners of selfless acts that point a desperately needy world to the ultimate hope of the better world He has made possible for us. Grounded in the concluding words of Jesus in the parable of the Good Samaritan, “Go and do likewise” (Luke 10:25-37), the theme of the Global Youth Day is “Be the sermon.” . . .
ACF Institute 2017
It's almost impossible to be human without experiencing loneliness at one time or another. Being a student on a secular university or college campus though around thousands of other students often heightens our sense of being alone. Students struggle with questions like: Does anybody else believe the same things I do? How can I live according to my religious convictions on my campus? Am I alone in doing evangelism on my campus?
Adventist Christian Fellowship
Adventist Christian Fellowship is the official organization for Adventist campus ministry on non-Adventist college and university campuses within the North American Division of Seventh-day Adventist’s . . .
Mission Lifeguard
Mission Lifeguard is a resource re-launched by the North American Division Youth & Young Adult Ministries Leadership to save lives. It's one of the North American Division Building Blocks for LIFE.
