Presently, our department is in a process assessing the spiritual, social and relational needs of our young adults in an effort to pilot a ministry that will address at least in part these needs to develop a young adult church retention ministry model. Our feature event for this ministry is an annual Young Adult and Collegiate Congress that serves as an opportunity to assess and address some of the spiritual challenges of young adults as well as a launching pad for young adult ministry initiatives and to celebrate ministry successes of the year past.NamePastor Ryan Simpson, DirectorApril Montoya, AssistantTelephonex619x620Public CampusPublic Campus MinistriesPublic Campus Ministries is geared toward reaching both Adventist and non-Adventist students at public colleges and universities. Some have estimated that at least 80% of Adventist students attend public colleges. This ministry is geared toward supporting students that find themselves in this often unfamiliar environment and challenging them to reach out to their peers. Our efforts are focused on the Boston area collages and universities such as Harvard where the conference director is also the Adventist chaplain, as well as the five college campuses out in western Massachusetts where we have a well-established ministry going. Public Campus Ministries in SNEC shares the Young Adult and Collegiate Congress as its annual feature event.
