A Community of Young Believers
Welcome to Adventist Youth Ministries of Ottawa East! We are a community of young people who are passionate about living out our faith and serving others. Our goal is to create a safe and welcoming space where youth can grow in their relationship with God and with one another. Our ministry is segmented into 3 different communities:
Teens Ministry - Youth between the ages of 13 & 18
Collegiate - Students between the ages of 19 & 24
Young Adults - Youth between the ages of 25 & 35
Our Youth Ministries program offers a variety of opportunities for young people to get involved and make a difference in their community. Here are some of the programs we offer:
Our Youth Group is a place for teens to come together and grow in their faith. We offer weekly meetings, Bible studies, and social events. Our goal is to create a supportive community where teens can share their struggles and joys with one another.
Our annual youth retreats are an opportunity we take every year to escape the city and connect with God through an unforgettable weekend of fun, fellowship, and spiritual growth! You'll enjoy a variety of outdoor activities, inspiring worship services, and engaging small group discussions. Whether you're a long-time Adventist or just curious about the faith, this retreat is the perfect opportunity to connect with other young people who share your values and passions. So pack your bags, grab some friends, and get ready for a weekend you'll never forget! Register now for our 2023 Youth Retreat!
We offer opportunities for youth to serve others through mission trips. These trips provide a chance to make a tangible difference in the lives of others while growing in faith and building relationships with other youth.
We believe that part of living out our faith is sharing the love of Jesus with others. Our Outreach program provides opportunities for teens to get involved in local service projects and evangelism efforts.
We know that life as a young adult can be busy and stressful. That's why we offer a variety of social events throughout the year, including movie nights, game nights, and more. These events provide a chance to relax and have fun with other young people in a safe and welcoming environment.

Our annual Youth Retreat is here for 2023! This is a great opportunity to grow in your faith and connect with other young people who share your beliefs! This retreat is a safe and welcome space where Adventist young people can come together to learn, grow, and have lots of fun!
Our retreat theme for 2023 is Heart Work! Our retreat is designed to help young people break out of the negative cycles that may be holding them back, so that they can leave feeling empowered and ready to take control of their life. Through self-work and personal growth, young people will be able to gain the tools and insights they need to overcome challenges, build resilience, and unlock their full potential. So if you're ready to make a change and take the next step in your personal journey, we invite you to register for this year's retreat and see what you're capable of achieving!
