In 2002 a small group of college students began a movement – the result of a hungering for the Word of God, deeper relationship with Christ and an active life in His service.
Uphold the distinctive message of the Seventh-day Adventist Church; to aspire to excellence in all aspects of their lives – academic, professional, and spiritual; to embrace the call to radical discipleship, including a life of missionary service; and to be supportive and respectful of denominational leadership while remaining a youth-led movement.
There exists today an army of dedicated young people within the Seventh-day Adventist Church who yearn to demonstrate Nehemiah’s leadership, Daniel’s integrity, Mary’s humility, Paul’s passion for evangelism, and Christ’s love for God and humanity.
It is the goal of GYC and its members to seek and galvanize such young people. We aim to mobilize existing youth and young adult ministries that are fully committed to the distinctive message and mission of the Adventist Church towards the proclamation of the Three Angels’ Messages.
GYC seeks to equip and inspire young people to be Christian ambassadors to their respective places of work and study by
