We aim to mobilise existing youth and young adult ministries that are fully committed to the distinctive mission of the Adventist church to proclaim the Three Angels’ Messages.
In seeking to uphold the distinctive message of the Seventh-day Adventist Church, GYC seeks to promote respect for the Bible and the Spirit of prophecy, enthusiasm for service , and commitment to the Seventh-day Adventist Church.
We are a youth-initiated and-led movement of Seventh-day Adventists from diverse backgrounds, united in a common commitment to Bible study, prayer and sharing Christ.
GYC began in 2002, when a small group of young students were brought together by a common hungering for the Word of God, deeper relationship with Christ and an active life in His service. This initiative has grown into a huge movement with chapters around the world, such as GYC Europe.
GYC seeks to uphold the distinctive message of the Seventh-day Adventist Church; to aspire to excellence in all aspects of their lives – academic, professional, and spiritual; to embrace the call to radical discipleship, including a life of missionary service.
Whilst we are a youth-led movement, we seek to be supportive and respectful of denominational leadership, doing what we can to advance the cause of Christ here in Europe.
GYC Europe conferences are a place where you can connect with other young people from across Europe, who are motivated by a desire to know God for themselves and to be involved in service. Our conferences feature a number of international speakers offering inspiring sermons to help you in your walk with Christ. We also have various workshops to address various aspects of practical Christianity, helping you to put the theory into practise.
We host virtual, united prayer session over Zoom on weekdays (07:00-07:30 CET) and on Sundays (08:00-08:40 CET). This provides an opportunity for young people from across the world to unite in pleading before God for their own personal needs, and also to intercede on behalf of their family, friends and local churches. GYC Europe places a special emphasis on the power and necessity of prayer in the christian life because it is “the breath of the soul…the secret of spiritual power. ” – (MYP 249)

In addition to devotional content aimed at explaining key Bible teachings, our blog also contains personal testimonies, book reviews and spotlights of ministries from across Europe.
