  2. TOGETHER WE MUST LOVE YOUNG ADULTS BETTER!

    Big Lake Youth Camp took intentional steps during the summer of 2016 to raise the level of love, support, and empowerment for their young adult staff. This was a summer of tragedy and miracles, as the camp suffered the loss of one of their own, but witnessed God's power as the team joined together moving forward in accomplishing their mission of sharing the love of Jesus with thousands of campers. Thank you to Les Zollbrecht, Big Lake Youth Camp Director, for his support and partnership in this next level young adult ministry effort. The ministry model used at Big Lake Youth Camp was called OVERFLOW.

    OVERFLOW is proven mentoring and discipleship model for young adults. Any church, university campus, for summer camp can apply this ministry model helping young adults to grow in their relationship with Jesus and expand their influence as leaders for His cause. Benjamin Lundquist, Young Adult Ministries Director for Oregon Conference and NAD Young Adult Ministries Coordinator, began building this model in the summer of 2012 at Camp Yavapines in Arizona. As of 2016 over 1000 young adults have been encouraged, supported, and empowered through OVERFLOW. The model is fully customizable to any young adult ministry settings, with minimal cost investment, and is focused on the implementation of the following components as a packaged approach:

    1. Mentoring
    2. Authentic Community
    3. Biblical Teaching
    4. Leadership Training
    5. Ministry Outlet(s)
    6. Spiritual Disciplines

  3. Located in the heart of the DFW Metroplex, Younger Generation Church [YG] is the vibrant young adult ministry of the Arlington Seventh-day Adventist Church [Texas]. In addition to young adults leading a weekly worship experience on their campus, YG has cast a vision to “overflow Jesus Christ beyond their four walls—blessing the community, transforming the world.”

    This summer two of YG’s worship leaders—Melody Mendez, a junior at Burton Adventist Academy; and Princess Demiar, a recent graduate from Southwestern Adventist University—were part of YG worship teams ministering for North American Division youth events, camp meetings, and summer camps.

    Melody and Princess reflect on their summer and what worship leading means to them. For more information on Younger Generation Church go to ygchurch.com

  5. “I love the passion and devotion displayed—Christ-centered,” shared young professional Jessica Sandquist, “Jesus is the focus.”

    Over 3000 came from across the Southwestern Union and beyond to attend the first Committed2Christ: Young Adult Festival of Worship [C2C], hosted at the Arlington Seventh-day Adventist Church.

    Elders Joey Pollom and Roger Wade, Youth Directors for the Texas Conference and the Southwest Region Conference respectively, challenged C2C delegates in the morning worship sessions, as Burton Adventist Academy Chorale and the Younger Generation Church Worship Band offered inspiration in music.

    The afternoon featured spiritual growth seminars by Pollom and Wade, as well as a community service opportunity at the North Texas Food Bank. Teamed up with members of the North Dallas Youth Federation, C2C delegates prepared thousands of pounds of food to benefit families in need. And to the surprise of many, they were joined by NBC’s Sing Off Season 2 Champions, Committed, who sang to the group from the warehouse terrace then joined in sorting food stuffs and preparing meal boxes.

    At the close of Sabbath, Committed member, Geston Pierre, shared his testimony of being part of the nationally televised acapella music contest, and how, like the biblical Daniel, he and Committed saw God’s faithfulness, using the group’s commitment to Christ as a witness to others. Following Pierre’s sermon, to conclude the festival, Committed performed to a sold out concert crowd.

    “Committed was really good and I’m very glad they were worshipping along with us, instead of just performing for us,” commended educator, Buford Griffith. “The speakers were phenomenal, motivational and insightful. The music was off-the-chart and inspirational. Everyone involved was Christ-centered; There was a genuine attitude of kindness, love, courteousness, and caring.”

    Beyond the event t-shirt, C2C delegates went home with various discipleship materials, books, and online resources to encourage them to continue to deepen their devotion to Jesus. With such a positive response and the strong support of the youth departments and local sponsors, there are high hopes to make the festival an annual gathering.

    “Committed2Christ was an amazing worship experience,” expressed young adult photographer, Teshorn Jackson. “If you doubted the existence of Christ prior to that day, you left knowing He is alive and in the hearts of His people.”
