Youth camp “PL Camp’17″
Youth camp “PL Camp’17″ took place in July on an out-of-town recreation center of New Life Church. During two terms 100 young people of 12 to 15 and of 16 to 25 years old had a good time in the camp. Youth ministry of the church “PL Youth” served as coordinators, leaders and volonteers.
The first term was named “In the camp”. Its theme topic was responsibility. Pastor of the camp and a leader of camp ministry “Together” Andrei Shaitar was invited as a speaker. He taught kids spiritual truths, spoke on how important it is to take responsibily for own life and lives of others, told about the role of self-esteem and shared many interesting personal examples.
On the second term which got the title “5 days of life” youth pastor Ilya Goncharenko preached. Each day was dedicated to a specific topic. On the last two days senior pastor of New Life Church Vyacheslav Goncharenko taught the word and shared good advice.
Youth musical group of the church under the leadership of Konstantin Dzembasa helped the participants sing praises to the Lord. Anointed songs and high professional level of the young levits managed to foster in kids’ hearts the love to praise and worship the Lord.
Every day was full of different events: games, relay races, parties, talk shows, talent contests ect. During the camp boys and gurls participated in 10 workshops.
Apart from teaching classes kids could choose from a great variety of entertainments and games where they learnt to be brave, give hand to others, recharge their positive mood and just had a lot of fun.
During the camp we could see how God changes kids’ hearts: new dreams were born, new talents revealed, serious decisions made. Over the camp about ten kids dedicated their lives to the Lord by being baptised in water.
God worked with every person. It was clearly seen during nights of praise and worship where more than 30 boys and girls repented, many were baptized by the Holy Spirit, miracles happened.
Camp is an effective tool in God’s hands, all who serve are Jesus’ hands for Him to hug kids, His lips to speak His truth and His eyes that shine with His glorious love!
