ABOUT US

Welcome to the website of the Youth Department of the Chesapeake Conference of Seventh-day Adventists. Our vision is to have a youth ministry that is directed and encouraged by God, where the youth believe the truth, is guided by the Holy Spirit, gives the reason of the hope that is within them, and honors God by using the gifts in areas where God has enabled them to labor.
