Since its inception, the Seventh-day Adventist Youth Ministry Department has served the youth through three levels; namely, Adventurer Club for 4-9 years old; Pathfinder Club for 10-15 years old; and Senior Youth/ Young Adults for 16-30+ years old.
However, the church noted that the young people who complete the Pathfinder requirements are left without a programme that meets their needs. They do not want to leave the Pathfinder club, but at the same time they do not feel old enough to associate themselves with the Senior Youth/Young Adults.
At the 2001 World Youth Leadership Convention a very important action was taken, charging the General Conference Youth Department to develop materials for a New Level to meet the need of the youth, ages 16-21, in the Seventh-day Adventist Church. The Ambassador curriculum is the outcome of this action.
Any youth age 16 up through the mid-twenties who choose to live by the principles and guidelines of the Seventh-day Adventist Church.
For definition purposes, the Youth Department defines Junior Youth Ministry as focusing on those under the age of 16 (another way of wording it would be ages 15 and under). Senior Youth are those who are ages 16-30+, divided in two Ministries: Ambassadors, ages 16-21 and Young Adults, ages 22 to 30+. This club’s focus is primarily for those within the Senior Youth category; however, the upper age limit is left more open because in many areas there are young people in their 20’s that would very much enjoy the benefits of membership in this club.
Please note that the Ambassador Club is not intended to replace the AYS, but instead, will strengthen the current Senior Youth/Young Adult Ministry of our Church. This new level will provide a structured and organized way for 16-21 years olds to become actively involved in their church, both locally and globally.
