“The Youth Ministries Department’s exists to serve as a resource and empowerment agency to plan and execute through a creative and innovative process . “

“We have an army of youth today who can do much if they are properly directed and encouraged. We want our children to believe the truth. We want them to be blessed of God. We want them to act a part in well-organized plans for helping other youth. Let all be so trained that they may rightly represent the truth, giving them reason of the hope that is within them, and honoring God in any branch of the work where they are qualified to labor” (General Conference Bulletin, January 29, 30, 1893, p. 24.)
