Welcome to the Youth Ministry Department!
It is our mission to make it easy for kids and young adults to know God through youth and young adult ministries as well as being a resource for local church leaders. From Adventurers and Pathfinders to summer camp ministries; from large, conference-wide events to meaningful programs at your local church, we're here to serve! Please contact us to let us know how we can assist you.
In His service,

NEW! Summer Camp Registration Deadlines! Updates to Colorado Statutes governing Children's Resident Camps went into affect on April 1, 2018. For the most part, the updates do not change how parents and campers will interact with the camp program. However, one major rule update CHANGES REGISTRATION DEADLINES! This is very important to note. REGISTRATION for each camp session WILL CLOSE 10 DAYS PRIOR to EACH CAMP SESSION'S START DATE. Walk-ups and late registrations will not be allowed.
Per 12-CCR 2509-8 7.711.31 B: "At least ten (10) calendar days prior to admission, each camper must furnish a health history which indicates communicable diseases and chronic illnesses or injuries the individual has had, any known drug reactions and allergies, medications being taken, and any necessary health procedures or special diets."
This means that we cannot allow a camper to attend GVR Summer Camp who has not provided the health history at least 10-days prior to the day of on-site registration and admission. The Health History form is required as a part of our online reservation process. It is very important that registrants complete the entire form at the time that they register online.
Again, summer camp registration for each session will close 10-days prior to that session's start date. Please plan accordingly and register for summer camp early!

The Love Reality Tour is coming to Colorado! We'll be hosting nightly meetings at the Greeley Seventh-Day Adventist Church from April 6 to 14. Meetings begin at 7PM.
When the series in Greeley concludes, we'll be packing up our bags and heading to Grand Junction for meetings at the NEW Grand Junction Seventh-Day Adventist Church from April 18 - 21. Meetings begin at 6:30PM.
The Love Reality Tour is an evangelistic series for youth and young adults connecting to the greatest reality of all.

Programs & Events
This year, the Youth Department is choosing to focus on identity. Our theme for 2018 is, "I AM." It is our belief that if we could become secure in who we are as children of the living God, our generational differences would melt away and the bickering over politics, doctrine and equality would cease. Again, this call is to the young and to the old as to the progressive or conservative – sacrifice self in exchange for the identity God has for each of us. If we would only be able to make the challenging leap to give up pride and self in order to live by God’s view of our Identity, then truth, self-worth, confidence, standards, ideals, purpose, love, and unity will follow.
Let’s not wait for another church or another person to make a difference. Let’s not talk about our issues and fail to follow through with action. Instead, let us follow the call of Colossians 3:10, setting our minds on heavenly things while throwing off the old self in proclamation that we ARE new men and new women in Christ. With confidence, we can claim our identity, internalize our value, sacrifice our selfish desires and live for the betterment of others.
We're very excited because this IS happening in churches all over the conference. The Holy Spirit is working! This year, we are thrilled to continue providing summer camp, conference-wide youth events, and support for our local churches across Colorado, Wyoming and New Mexico!
