Federations
Federations exist to offer tangible aid through
training, mentoring, and serving as a source of
support to Adventist Youth Society (AYS)
groups. The AYS objective is “to save from sin
and guide into service.” This is done through
relevant youth worships, serving others, and
building community. Each federation organizes
an area rally per year where youth can come
together to celebrate Jesus and serve others.

Young Adult
Young Adult Ministries
This is still going through an evolutionary or
developmental phase for SNEC. 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.

Public Campus
Public Campus Ministries
Public 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 wellestablished ministry going. Public Campus Ministries in
SNEC shares the Young Adult and Collegiate Congress as
its annual feature event.
