The Youth Christian Camp

The aim of the Ant House program is to bring the good news of salvation to non-believers and to deepen the relationships with Jesus among youth who have already taken Christ into their hearts.

The program encourages young Christians to strengthen their faith in Christ…

…to feel their strength in Jesus and to learn how to be responsible for their deeds.

The youth are able to know God, to come to the Church, to find new friends in Christ,

as well as to change their attitudes towards life and to find new circles of people for fellowship.
