Global Youth Day 2015


Why Global Youth Day?

GYD is the pursuit of a vision to recapture the reality of Seventh-day youth as a global movement, mobilized for service to contribute in the proclamation of the everlasting gospel and usher in the second coming of Jesus Christ.

Grounded in the concluding words of Jesus in the parable of the Good Samaritan, “Go and do likewise” (Luke 10:25-37), the theme of the Global Youth Day is:


GYD is a Sabbath when Seventh-day Adventist Youth around the world are challenged to “Be the Sermon” instead of simply listening to one more sermon. Eight million Adventist youths are mobilized on the streets of our villages, towns, and cities around the world to be the hands and feet of Jesus through acts of kindness. GYD is scheduled on the first Sabbath of the youth week of prayer for most parts of the world.

On GYD, the sense of a global community is created as young people report their acts of kindness by posting their ‘love in action’ on the GYD face book page or GYD app; their stories are told to the rest of the world via a 24 hour live broadcast.

Please contact your conference or mission youth department to find out what they have planned and to see how they can help you achieve your mission for the day.



Download the Global Youth Day app and use it to upload your pics and videos, rather than Facebook. Why? Only through the app can our technicians and engineers geotrack your location to add your activity to the live map on the GYD Home Page. Make sure your local group is plugged into the worldwide movement! Click here for Apple and click here for Android.
