In the August 2017 Gleaner editorial, John Freedman, North Pacific Union Conference (NPUC) president, expressed that "we can no longer ignore statistics that show our Seventh-day Adventist denomination in North America is aging. Our older, wiser members are precious to our church and essential to our God-given mission. However, we have a generational crisis that is not adequately being addressed. We are failing to adequately incorporate young adults into church ministry and mission."
So, how do we conquer this and grow our churches younger?
The NPUC, along with the North American Division (NAD), is working towards this through the Growing Young program.
