About GYC Europe

OUR MISSION AND TEAM

THE CAUSE

The proclamation of the everlasting gospel, as outlined in the three angels’ messages, to every nation, tribe, tongue and people, is the mission of the Seventh-Day Adventist Church. The accomplishment of this great work can only be realised when every member, especially the youth, engage in personal ministry.  

With such an army of workers as our youth, rightly trained, might furnish, how soon the message of a crucified, risen, and soon-coming Saviour might be carried to the whole world! – MH, PG 193

There exists, today, an army of dedicated young people who yearn to demonstrate Nehemiah’s leadership, Daniel’s integrity, Mary’s humility, Paul’s passion for evangelism, and Christ’s love for God and humanity. It is the goal of GYC and its members to seek and galvanise such young people.

OUR Team

GYC Europe is led by a team of 10 who compose the Executive Committee, and serve under the guidance of a Board consisting of denominational employees and lay-members.
