“I went to GYC wavering spiritually and not committed to Christ, but the messages there, especially those by Jason Sliger, convinced me to commit my life to God. Before this year’s GYC, I have asked questions my whole life, such as, “What is faith?” but GYC answered those questions satisfactorily. I want to encourage you not to be weary in well-doing. My life has been changed because I heard the truth about sanctification and the investigative judgment, and how God expects us to live up to a standard of perfection. May God bless your efforts and I know that many of my friends were revitalized at this year’s conference as well.”Caleb Howard, 2016 + SAU Accent Article
“Lives are changed here; I know that eleven years ago at my first GYC, the course of my life was radically changed from a life of service of my own interests to a life focused on service for God.”Scott Sterling, Dec. 31, 2016
“Going to GYC was a beyond amazing experience ! When I first heard about it I was like ,”eh, ok I’ll go”, but now that I have actually gone God has opened my eyes up to so much. GYC 2014 Orlando was my first experience and I couldn’t wait until the next GYC before that one was even over! But even though these conferences are amazing and help a striving christian not feel alone, I’m looking forward to the time where GYC will be over! When we will have an eternal meeting heaven! No more good byes, no more pain, it’ll all be gone. These messages that are preached at GYC are amazing and I feel closer to Christ! Gods waiting for us His people, and His message to be preached to all the world!”Cheyna Ashe, Aug. 14, 2014
“A very inspiring sight to be around so many young people on fire for the Lord. Listening to speakers giving enlightening messages…and going out in droves to do outreach in the communities surrounding the convention center of whatever city GYC is in… amazing and definitely worth going and participating in!”Carolyn Hayes, March 15, 2014
“This was my first time attending gyc. I loved it. I learned sooo much. My spiritual life will never be the same. I’m already planning on going to the next one. The speakers were awesome. The bond was great and outreach was an experience that I enjoyed. Never seen so many seventh day adventist in one place. Just awesome!”Jennelle Heston, Jan. 8, 2014


“For the last ten years I have had the opportunity to pray with, study scripture and provide counsel to the GYC leadership team. As I have spoken at numerous GYC events and interacted with the thousands of young people attending the Annual Convention, I have been deeply impressed with the spiritual atmosphere, their commitment to Christ, scripture, mission and the Adventist message. I highly recommend GYC to young people seeking to know Christ better, understand the Word more deeply, and develop a passion for mission.”Mark Finley
“GYC should be a must for any young adult serious about a deeper relationship with Jesus and a life dedicated to reaching others with the good news of the gospel. Every GYC convention to date has resulted in lives won to Christ and altered for eternity. This year will be no different!”John Bradshaw, Speaker/Director, It is Written
“Janet and I believe our Lord is raising up that Elijah movement of young people He has promised just before He comes! (Malachi 4:5,6) We see it all around the world and our experience with GYC as a part of that movement has always been so positive! It is a supportive ministry of this SDA church and its influence has become global, spawning many other young adult ministries also very supportive of the mission and message of our movement!”Jerry Page, Secretary, General Conference Ministerial Association
