Abstract

The purpose of this study was to examine the relationships between involvement in youth ministry and levels of “at-risk” behavior in youth. We used data from Valuegenesis II, a North American national survey of youths attending Seventh-day Adventist schools in Grades 6-12. Our results suggest that Adventist youths are highly involved in youth ministry programs; have low at-risk behaviors; and that students with no at-risk behavior are more highly involved in youth ministry than students with at-risk behaviors.
