Young adults are conspicuously missing from the majority of Seventh-day Adventist churches. Finding effective means of ministry for the millennial generation is essential for the health and growth of Adventist young adults in the 21st Century. While each young adult is unique, there are general relational principles that are imperative to build the relationships and establish the community this generation seeks: finding a social prop, mastering small talk, asking questions, curiosity, vulnerability. The church must move forward, choosing to err on the side of love, acceptance, and mercy to be relevant to young adults today.
