"I couldn't always claim the title Seventh-day Adventist throughout my entire young adult life, but after experiencing more life I believe the need for faith is real. The SDA church, while not perfect, follows the Bible the closest of all faiths I have seen.
A lot of our generation feels like they don't have a part to play, it's the Achilles' heel of this church. There has to be more structure to how we can be involved. Right now there is no clear path for young SDA adults. Other denominations have executed this really well. I think specifically of The Church of the Latter-day Saints- really high retention rate, very involved outreach programs, and it's coordinated with their educational system.
We need unity and purpose. We must put down identity and titles of what we think we are and be Christian brothers and sisters making this world a better place. This can be done, but we have to be Christians first and people second. I'm very encouraged by many things our generation is accomplishing and our more broad-minded views. We must use this positively for the end goal of unity. No liberals and conservatives, etc. Just Christians on a mission."
