The cover story of the May 21, 2009 edition of the Adventist Review is important for everyone, but the article is focused on one demographic — “What Jesus Said about Young Adult Ministry” (G Hopkins, D McBride, S Tyner, R Drumm, & W Kannenberg). Excerpt:
In no uncertain terms Jesus asserted that His people, the righteous, serve others by meeting their needs: caring for the sick, feeding the hungry, clothing the naked, and visiting those imprisoned. Not only are the sick, the poor, the imprisoned ministered to, but the bottom line is that we serve Jesus Himself by serving the unfortunate in our communities.
I enjoyed Gary Hopkin’s enthusiasm for this topic when he presented this paper at the 180 Symposium at Andrews University. This article is also in the symposium collection that can be purchased from AdventSource — Ministering with Millennials (disclosure: I also co-wrote one of the chapters of this book).
