The primary focus of youth ministry is the salvation of youth through Jesus Christ. We understand youth ministry to be that work of the church that is conducted for, with, and by young people.
Our Task is to:
- Lead youth to understand their individual worth and to discover and develop their spiritual gifts and abilities.
- Equip and empower youth for a life of service with God's church and the community.
- Ensure the integration of youth into all aspects of church life and leadership in order that they might be full participants i the mission of the church.
- to train the youth to work for other youth
- to recruit the youth to help their church
- to work for those who are not of our faith
In seeking to reach these objectives the youth are called upon (1) to pray together, (2) to study the Word together, (3) to fellowship together in Christian social interaction, (4) to act together in small groups to carry out well-laid plans for witnessing, (5) to develop tact and skill and talent in the Master's service, and (6) to encourage one another in spiritual growth.
The Aim of the Adventist Youth Society is: "The Advent Message to All the World in My Generation."
The Motto is: "The Love of Christ Constrains Me."
Youth Ministries means more than Sabbath school every week. Atlanta Boulevard has a dynamic youth ministries program that is presented each Sabbath an hour before sunset. The programs are geared for the youth and are presented by the youth. During the basketball season, come cheer and encourage the Atlanta Boulevard Warriors. They are unstoppable!
