GYC Studies is an initiative co-sponsored by GYC and CAMPUS to inspire Adventist young people to engage with today’s relevant topics from a Bible-based perspective.
February 1-3, 2013
Camp Au Sable, Grayling, Michigan
Theme: Social Justice
Verse: Zec. 7:9-10
Bible–any book/passage that you believe addresses social justice
Ellen G. White, Welfare Ministry (1952)
Ellen G. White, The Southern Work (1966)
Ellen G. White, Temperance (1949)
Mindi Rahn and Paul and Petra Howe, “Power to Change the World: Jesus, Arabic, and Kale” (GYC 2012 seminar series)

Fernando Canale, “The Eclipse of Scripture and the Protestantization of the Adventist Mind” (JATS, Fall 2010/Spring 2011)–Part 1 & Part 2
While these resources represent a tiny sliver of the resources available on social justice and “studying” available today, they help provide an Adventist-worldview-based foundation for understanding and processing the many ideas concerning the issue of social justice in our world today.
*Given the length of the book, we will accept reflections on a single chapter and its relation to the topic of “studying” and Scripture.
Regular registration is now closed, but on-site registration will be available for a limited number of attendees!
On-site Cost: $100 (see below for information about discount)–includes housing, registration fee, and meals
