Soon after, the first Adventist Youth Society, comprised of nine boys, was born in Luther’s bedroom. From an inauspicious beginning, right here in the Lake Union, a worldwide movement was born.
In this youth and young adult issue, we set out to reacquaint (or introduce) you to some of our dedicated leaders helping to further the mission that these two boys launched 140 years ago. Meet our longest-serving conference Youth director (since January 2001), Indiana’s Charlie Thompson, and our newest (appointed February 2019), Michigan’s Chad Bernard.
