 What is the Network?

The Network was developed as a tool to keep churches within a certain geographical area connected.  It easily allows our churches to support each other and work together to lift up Christ before our youth and the world.  A system of Networks is recommended for every conference in North America to strengthen the youth ministry of the local church.

What is the purpose of the Network?

The purpose of the Network is to:

  1. Encourage spiritual and social fellowship among Adventist youth by providing events which bring outstanding speakers, musicians, and church leaders to inspire and nurture youth in their spiritual and social development.
  2. To strengthen local church organizations by modeling excellent programs, and by providing an occasion that requires planning and involvement of each area church youth group.
