About Master Guides

DEFINITION: The Master Guide Ministry is a development and mentoring program for youth leadership within the Seventh-Day Adventist Church, serving the entire community.

PURPOSE: Develop Christ-like leaders to disciple children, youth and young adults.

MISSION: To empower leaders through effective training and equipping and deploying them for service.

VISION: To see all young people saved.

PHILOSOPHY: The Seventh-Day Adventist Church is committed to training youth and young adults for leadership and service to God and humanity.

Being a Master Guide grants you a responsibility more than status. The Master Guide ministry was developed to train and develop leaders for the Church and in specific, for youth ministry.

The Master Guide curriculum is primarily intended to train those who wish to be actively involved in junior youth ministry in their local church. Its objective is to provide opportunities for participants to develop an awareness of the role of child/youth leadership and become better prepared to accept this role by receiving training in:

  • Personal and Spiritual Development Skills
  • Development Leadership
  • Development Fitness
  • Life-style Development
