Many local churches love their young adults but are at a loss about where to begin a thriving ministry with them. The Young Adult LIFE Tour intends to bring insights and relevant, doable steps toward building young adult ministries now.

Wanting to be more than an instructional event, the Young Adult LIFE Tour intends to be experiential and interactive, seeking to hold tour stops in local Adventist churches across the division where vibrant young adult ministry is thriving and bringing vitality to the whole congregation. Following the NPUC tour stop, plans are being laid for tour stops in Lake Union and Canada.
