Is Army of Youth 3.0 on its way?

UPDATE: (12/22/09) The new Army of Youth website is up and running. Read about it ➞

Looks like the Adventist social networking website, Army of Youth might be getting a major upgrade. The website went down Monday (12/13/09) afternoon and currently displays a message saying, “Website Upgrade in Progress.” However, users were still able to login to the site through one of its other webpages. If the website really is being updated, you could expect to see a lot of changes.

➜ Please note that all the information in this article is based off what the website looked like when this article was written. We’re not saying this is what the website will finally look like and we can’t guarantee changes will actually happen. Now that we got that out of the way, here are some of the changes:

First thing we noticed was a large map and timeline in the “Command Center” (homepage when you login). It looks like it can be used to find events in your area as well other users, entities, and churches.

Another change we noticed included updated user profile layouts. Churches with accounts on the site have their own profiles. Entity profiles (now called “Ministries”) resemble user profiles as well.

Youth Conferences, Training Centers, Ministries, and Churches are now listed in their own sections on the website. The word, “Beta,” on the website logo is replaced with “Ministries,” and AOY T-shirt was for sale.

We found it interesting that Army of Youth was launched in time for one of the Generation of Youth for Christ conferences a few years back. Could there be an upgrade in time for this year’s GYC conference as well?

Either way, we can’t wait till the website opens up! It’s not too often we come across a Christian social networking website without obscene content or littered with ads!
