Youth Advance began with the goal of identifying the most outstanding teenage leaders in Northeast and Mid-Atlantic churches of Christ, bringing them together, and training them to become more involved in service, leadership and the lives of others. For more than 40 years, upwards of one thousand students have benefited from the instruction, fellowship, connection and motivation they have received at Youth Advance. Upon returning to their home congregations, Youth Advance participants, called “Ambassadors,” share these blessings with their youth group and their entire congregation. If you have young people who have attended Youth Advance before, you know what a life-changing event it is. If you are not aware of the incredible impact Youth Advance has had, read the words from the Ambassadors themselves.
