Why Yministry?

Memorial Day Weekend 2014.

One weekend to unite as young adults of the Church of God 7th Day, all of us, from different parts of the US, Canada & beyond!

National SWORD is taking the Southwest District’s “yMinistry” Retreat to a whole new level, and we want to see YOU, May 23-26 in Hawkins, Texas.

yMinistry is taking Generation “Y” (born in the 1980′s & 1990′s), all of us where were are right now as students, family leaders, entrepreneurs, artists and business leaders; and challenging all of us to take our faith to the next level. Where do I fit into ministry? Are only Pastors and men called to be ministers? How can I begin to live as a ‘Minister’? yMinistry brings together a collection of authentic and passionate ‘Ministers’ to engage and encourage us to find and live out a ministry.

This year’s theme for 2014 is the abridged version of Colossians 3, “Paradigm Shift”. With two and a half days of challenging main sessions, music, workshops, networking opportunities and more, we pray God will wholly shift our every day existence. That we will discover the ingredients that are lacking and making our faith lag, to make us more eternally minded. Shake us up God. We desire to be shifted!
