AYC Valencia "The Journey"

AYC Valencia

In the sunny city of Valencia more than 3000 young people will gather for the next European Adventist Youth Congress, August 1-5, 2017.

The European Adventist Youth Congress (AYC) is the largest gathering of Adventist youth throughout Europe taking place every four years. It is a memory event, the purpose of which is to share and celebrate our common faith, to strengthen our Adventist identity and to make a positive impact in the host city and surrounding area.

The AYC is organized by the Inter-European (EUD) and the Trans-European Division (TED). The AYC offers a unique experience of community, friendship, worship, spiritual motivation and challenge.

The theme for the AYC 2017 is "The JOURNEY“. We will be reminded of what it means to be travelling to heaven together. Journeying together means knowing where we are going, taking care of one another, and respecting nature and our surroundings as we "travel" through them. In other words, we will reflect together on what it is to be an Adventist Christian in this journey that we call life.

In addition to the fascinating general sessions, there will be more than 60 different seminars, lectures, Bible studies, and workshops on various topics to choose from, community impacts, prayer, art and sport activities.

Morning talks called "Journey Talks" will be short excellent presentations on various topics. The aim is to challenge, inspire, and get participants thinking. We want to speak to relevant issues and we are willing to wrestle with real-life situations that you deal with.

So be part of the journey! See you in Valencia!
