About Global Youth Day

With the support of GC Administration, the 13 Division youth directors, MENA Union and the Israel field, “Global Youth Day” was launched on March 13, 2013. The vision of GYD is to recapture the reality of Adventist youth as a global movement mobilized for service, contributing to the proclamation of the everlasting gospel and ushering in the second coming of Jesus Christ. There is a lot more to religious faith than simply going to church and listening to sermons. The true practice of religion involves the revelation of God’s love in living out Jesus’s gospel commission as He bade us to before He ascended to heaven: through all manners of selfless acts that point a desperately needy world to the ultimate hope of the better world He has made possible for us. Grounded in the concluding words of Jesus in the parable of the Good Samaritan, “Go and do likewise” (Luke 10:25-37), the theme of the Global Youth Day is “Be the sermon.”

After seeing all the news reports, testimony videos, and worldwide activity from more than 150 million digital social media impressions on GYD 2017, we know God has been ministering to those in need through our tireless young people committed to being the hands and feet of Jesus—
