My name is Pastor Steve Carlson, and as the Youth Director for the Ohio Conference I want to officially welcome you to our website. This department serves as the center for Adventist youth ministry in the state of Ohio. The ministries we offer are Summer Camp (ages 6-17), Adventurers (ages 4-10), Pathfinders (ages 10-15), High School (grades 9-12), and Young Adult (ages 18-35).

Our goal is to "train" young people for service, "send" them out to their communities, and "grow" the kingdom of GOD here in Ohio.  We want to pursue this goal with you in the local church, as we combine our efforts to make Jesus known.  GOD has big plans for Ohio, and it's such a blessing to know that we each have a role to play.  GOD is so good!  Please sign up for our e-Newsletter (link below) and let us know how we can better assist you in your ministry.      

Our desire is to live in the reality of the words of I John 4:7, 11... ”Dear friends, let us love one another, because love comes from God, and everyone who loves has been fathered by God and knows God... if God so loved us, then we also ought to love one another."  May we discover this Love, accept this Love, and share this Love!  Lets make the love of GOD known in the state of Ohio!
