This is a special event for Adventist students studying in Non-Adventist colleges and universities,  or have graduated  already. AMiCUS (Adventist Ministry to College and University Students) seeks to meet the spiritual, intellectual, and social needs of Seventh-day Adventist students on secular campuses worldwide.

I remember my younger brother, Ivan Franz Oliver, who was once a leader of the AMiCUS at the Polytechnic University of the Philippines (Sta. Mesa, Manila) during his college years. I am glad that God has given him the great opportunity to serve through this ministry and be a channel of blessings to others. I experienced the challenge of studying in a secular university (Philippine Women’s University) and it was hard if there’s no support group with same beliefs and interests. When I studied at the Adventist University of the Philippines, I enjoyed a lot the abundant training and ministries’ activities in-campus and off-campus.

“Our twofold focus as Adventist youth leaders must always be: Salvation and Service. We work to introduce our young people to Jesus Christ so that they will choose a saving relationship with Him for themselves. The second part of this work, equally important, is to then train them to bring His message of love and hope to others.” ~General Conference Youth Conference

Pastor Ron Genebago, the NPUC Youth Director, shares empowering lesson from the Messages to the Young People (my favorite book).

“With such an army of workers as our youth, rightly trained, might furnish, how soon the message of a crucified, risen, and soon-coming Savior might be carried to the whole world!” Ellen G. White, Messages to the Young People

“There should be an earnest desire in the heart of every youth who has purposed to be a disciple of Jesus Christ to reach the highest Christian standard, to be a worker with Christ.” EGW, God’s Amazing Grace, p. 284

These are the topics/sessions and the corresponding speakers/facilitators:

Kindly include the organizers, the guest speakers/ facilitators and the delegates of this event to your fervent prayers. I might miss this and yet I’ll keep praying for the blessings and success of this youth convention. May God equip more army of youth for His glory!

  1. I’m always so happy to see the commitments in youth following Christ. Continue in Him always. The world needs you more than you could ever imagine

  2. I just learned of this Power of One this year, back when I attended the Youth Prayer COnference in CLC. Pastor Ron was also there, plus he invited us to go to the Youth Alive activity to be held in Bacolod. I’m so blessed I get to grab this opportunity, as I have been studying since the beginning in non-Adventist school, even now I’m in post-grad school (medicine). Plus, I’m glad I bumped into your blog. God bless!

    • Great to hear from you! Our young people who are studying in non-SDA universities and colleges have the great privilege of reaching out through His grace. 🙂 thanks a lot for taking time to share you wonderful experience. Glad you were able to visit my blog. You’re always welcome to read my posts. Happy New Week! 🙂
