Jesus’ birth is the most important birth of all the billions that have taken place through earth’s history. His life, death and resurrection are at the center of the plan of salvation and our hope for eternity.

Jesus’ birth gives significance to every other birth on this planet. Every child that is born has infinite value because of His advent. As the people of God, we recognize this importance and choose to value every young person as well.

At the Chesapeake Conference, we have made ministry to children and youth a high priority. We invest time, resources, creativity and energy into a wide range of ministries to reach every child of God.

Me gustan las reuniones, los entrenamientos y los seminarios, donde hermanos y hermanas se reúnen para entrenar y entrenarse en el nombre de Dios. Estas actividades sirven para recargar mis baterías espirituales, hacer nuevos amigos y, lo mejor de todo, ver viejos amigos que no había visto en años. En este tipo de eventos, nota la inmensa variedad de culturas y nacionalidades que conforman nuestra
Iglesia Adventista del Séptimo Día, la conferencia de Nueva Jersey es un bello ejemplo.

Mientras escribo, me viene a la mente 1 Pedro 1:1. Pedro refería a hombres y mujeres que tuvieron que distanciarse de su patria, muy similar a algunos de nosotros que nos mudamos a este país en busca de un mejor lugar para vivir.

I like meetings and seminars, where brothers and sisters gather to train and be trained in the name of God. These activities serve to recharge my spiritual batteries, make new friends and see old friends. It is at these types of events that I notice the immense variety of cultures and nationalities that comprise the Seventh-day Adventist Church, the New Jersey Conference being a beautiful example.

As I write, 1 Peter 1:1 comes to mind. In it, Peter refers to men and women who had to distance themselves from their homeland, very similar to some of us who moved to this country looking for a better place to live.
