Pathfinders video ad: The few, the proud, the remnant.

Another clever video from the Florida Hospital Church in Orlando, Florida. This time, it's an ad for Pathfinders in the style of the U.S. Marine TV commercials.

Give Youth Top Leadership Positions, says Adventist President

Adventist World church president Jan Paulsen is asking you to involve youth and women in top leadership positions.

“Clearly I think we should invite young people to serve on our executive committees of the church,” said Paulsen. “I think they should be present on the executive committees over local conference, over union; I think their presence is needed. But by far, the overwhelming place where young people must be trusted with leadership roles is in the local congregation.”

Elder Paulsen says youth have not been given “meaningful functional roles” in their local churches. He’s right. Most churches give youth jobs that don’t meet our potential.

In many churches, youth aren't given jobs. And the times when youth are given jobs in their local church, it's usually something like just taking up the offering or being a junior deacon. It isn't bad to help out that way, it's just that many youth aren't given meaningful jobs until they are practically adults.

We can do so much more. Please give us that opportunity. Teach us what we would need to learn, and we’ll teach you things you haven't heard of. Don't kill this potential.

As the world church president said: We are the church.

Summer camp is coming! Are you going?

Summer has arrived for most of us in the United States, so how will you be spending your precious few months before school begins again? If your plans for the summer include spending countless hours moping around as boredom drives you crazy, then go for it.

However, if you do change your mind and decide you'd rather do something adventurous, then summer camp is just for you! At Adventist summer camps, you can go water skiing, mountain biking, rock climbing, canoeing, do gymnastics, archery, go airplane flying, horseback riding, wakeboarding, surfing, go-kart racing, whitewater rafting, and soooo much more!

There are over 60 Adventist camps in the United States and Canada, and you don't have to be an Adventist to be a part of the fun. Check out the links below to see if there's a camp near you!
