Young Adults: About to move for work or study?

11 February 2020 | New Zealand Pacific Union Conference

It can be scary moving away from home for the first time. What helps is knowing you have somewhere that wants you where you are going.

All our Adventist churches love young people but we have 16 churches all across NZ who are extra happy and ready to be your new home-away-from-home. They are part of a Network of churches that have committed to being the best church they can be for young adults.

To find out more about a church in the centre you are moving to, email the contact person there and they will plug you in. Parents, pastors and leaders can use this too for ensuring their young people get connected to a new church.

Wherever you go in 2020, there is a church that would love to have you!

To check out all your SDA church options, use Google or go to
