What is NCSA Youth?
NCSA Youth is the Youth Department of the Northern Conference of Seventh-day Adventists, covering a geographical area that includes the Four Provinces namely, North West, Limpopo, Mpumulanga and Gauteng. Within this area are more than 164 churches and companies. The Role of the NCSA Youth Department is to organize events for youth across the area that meet their spiritual, physical and emotional needs. In addition to events, we organize training for youth leaders and provide resources for youth ministry. In line with the General Conference Youth Department our mission, aim, motto and pledge are as follows:
Churches & Companies
The salvation of youth through Jesus Christ.
We understand youth ministry to be that
work of the church that is conducted
for, with, and by young people.
The advent message to all
the world in my generation.
Loving the Lord Jesus, I promise to
take an active part in the youth
ministry of the church, doing
what I can to help others and to
finish the work of the Gospel in all the world.
What We Believe
Below are the principles by which the Northern Conference Youth Department abides. These principles form the basis of programmes we plan, decisions we make and people we engage in service. We ask you to prayerfully consider each of the following principles:
A respect for the Bible: As the only rule of faith and test of all teachings and practice.
An appreciation for the writings of Ellen White: Otherwise known as the “Spirit of Prophecy” to be a guiding and informing source of instruction, comfort and warning for today.
A desire to save the lost: As we approach Christ’s imminent return, we seek to invite others to share in the love of Jesus our Saviour as we proclaim the Tree Angels’ Message to this lost world.
An enthusiasm for service: Realising and utilising our spiritual gifts in care for the needy, likewise to our spiritual and secular communities, and stewardship of our environment.
A quest for Biblical holiness: Through celebrating and experiencing the spiritual disciplines of prayer, daily personal devotion and a commitment to follow God’s word totally.
A meaningful and vibrant worship experience: One which is characterised by principle, reverence and decorum.
An exemplary and abundant lifestyle: In recreation, entertainment, dress and healthful living.
A cultivation of Christ-like relationships: Preserving purity and encouraging accountability and respect.
A regard for the Seventh-day Adventist Church as God’s remnant church: Knowing its special God-given role, supporting and upholding its principles, organisation and leadership.
