RAM Youth Department

 

Mrs. Ellen G White wrote in her book, “Called to Stand Apart” p. 66, which says, “With such an army of workers as our youth rightly trained, might furnish, how soon the message of a crucified risen and soon coming Saviour might be carried to the whole world!”

This powerful statement stood as the guiding principles why the Seventh day Adventist Church gives so much attention to the training of our young people. With this, the church leadership recognizes that indeed the young people of the church can be great instruments in carrying the message in these last days to the far ends of the world.

In response to these calling, Romblon Adventist Mission youth department under the leadership of Pastor Fernando Narciso, RAM youth director, organized and conducted a “Youth Leadership Summit” with the theme, “Pass It On” in cooperation with the leadership of the districts of Sibuyan island which they call “Sibuyan Island Association of Adventist Churches” (SISAAC) through its leaders, Jesse Roda and Dennis Ferrera, on May 9-12, 2018 at Magdiwang National High School (MNHS), Magdiwang, Romblon.
