NAD Educating Youth at Fuller
« on: June 23, 2018, 08:54:37 PM »
Yes, it was exciting to hear Elder Ted Wilson explain at the Atlanta GC Session just after his election as GC president, that we do not want to send our people to Sunday institutions to learn their ways. We are calling the faithful out of Babylon, not sending our people into Babylon to learn their ways. But, now we have the North American Division sending our youth to Fuller Institute to study a youth program developed by Fuller Faculty.

This spring, more than 30 Adventist church members, leaders, and innovators from across the North American Division (NAD) of the Seventh-day Adventist Church convened at Fuller Youth Institute in Pasadena, California, to complete the Growing Young certified speaker training and participate in the Growing Young Adventists (#GYA) cohort summit.


Not just our youth, but adult leaders went to Fuller to learn also. The Growing Young written by those affilated with Fuller is the study book for our youth who are already organized to bring their message in NAD churches throughout America in an attempt to bring about a "cultural" change.

Not only were youth specialists involved in the recent training, NAD ministerial, seminar professors, and young adults themselves joined in the certification process. The Growing Young book, which was used in the training, endorses the value of intergenerational relationships, but for the Adventist trainees, the power of inter-ministry and inter-agency collaboration became a catalytic ideal to refresh the “movement-momentum” that has been characteristic of the denomination since its inception.

It seems things are beginning to accelerate in the wrong direction.

Yah, Mike Tucker spoke at the WV campmeeting last week. He said he "equipped" the youth in his former church and let them do whatever they wanted for church service for the next six months while he defended them. He said that we need to let them make mistakes and that people were coming to church who had not come to church for years. Joel Olsteen could say the same thing. He also commented that we as adults have not been doing such a great job anyway. So, if your foot has infection cut your whole leg off ? A tell tale statement was when he said as a youth growing up in the church it was just a bunch of dos and don'ts.


Also, the Hispanic youth  leader of the conference asked if we were ready to do what it takes to bring youth into the church. My reply would be, " not necessarily."


While they had good speaking on health with Hans Diehl they do not get it when it comes to music. They also promoted George Knight.

That doesn't surprise me out of Mike Tucker.

Our new pastor is looking to make some changes and it looks like the bulk of the congregation is going to follow suit. The slippery slope of compromise is getting steeper and people are sliding faster.

What kind of changes are happening at your church?

No, I was expecting that. The dead give away was when he started talking about his childhood and all the does and don'ts. He acted a bit miffed about it.

I know your conferance  and ministerial director  and that doesn't surprise me either.
