THE "ONE" ALL GERMAN YOUTH CONGRESS

On October 2-4, 1,300 young people from the North and South German Unions met at the Kassel Convention Center two hours outside of Frankfurt for a celebration of worship, creative arts, community and service. The combined German Congress had not convened since 2007 and represented the wish of the young people, as well as their leaders, to honor Jesus's prayer for unity. General Conference Youth Director Gilbert Cangy and Euro Africa Division Youth Director Stephan Sigg attended to support Ruben Grieco and Bert Seafeldt, the Youth Directors of the two unions.

GREEK YOUTH CONGRESS: IN CHRIST WE COMMIT

From 4-7 September at the Kalamos camping site in Greece, the Greek Mission (GM) of the Seventh-day Adventist Church inspired their youth to do more than share the good news. The great challenge ahead of them, in addition to proclaiming the Gospel, is to make every new believer a disciple of Jesus Christ through the power of the Holy Spirit. Guest speaker Pastor Paul Tompkins, Trans-European Division Youth Director, challenged and encouraged the youth to become the messengers of comfort and hope to their own local communities. One of the important aims of the Congress was to learn to be useful and needed members of society, seeking to be not only hearers of the Word, but doers as well. The youth worked together to clean up the local beach and give out water to people on the streets, as well as Better Life Magazine. Click here for original article on this awesome event.

WORDS TO LIVE BY

"Listen carefully: Unless a grain of wheat is buried in the ground, dead to the world, it is never any more than a grain of wheat. But if it is buried, it sprouts and reproduces itself many times over. In the same way, anyone who holds on to life just as it is destroys that life. But if you let it go, reckless in your love, you’ll have it forever, real and eternal." (John 12:24, 25; MSG)
