Bringing Help & Hope to Slovakia
When Slovakia first came out from under a communist regime, it struggled to find its economic footing. There was much corruption that hurt its beginnings. Today it still struggles with a 12.4 percent unemployment rate. The rural areas are the most affected by this. Depression and suicide rates are among the highest in Europe as well.
Many, especially among the Romani people, are satisfied to live off of government assistance. Others see education as their only source of hope, to the point of elevating education over God in their lives. Many have forgotten that moral character is necessary to use that education in a beneficial and productive way. We want to teach how good character can enrich their lives, as well as enable them to benefit their society.

Training and Community Development
Over the years we have shown love to Slovak people through providing English education, basic aid, summer youth camps, community development, and assistance in further education.
We have started a Worldview Training Center to help young people and adults comprehend a worldview that will instill in them the principles and character qualities that will help them to bring help and hope to their communities.
We conduct English and Worldview camps that not only teach English, but promote hope in the lives of many teens in need. These camps are designed to help people see life through God's perspective.
Weekend retreats are for anyone who is interested in getting away from the busyness of life in order to meet God in a deeper way. We offer times of learning and discussion as we seek to know God better through study, music, worship and prayer. We will also offer an introduction into worldview thinking and God’s perspective of every area of life.
This retreat in the beautiful mountains of Slovakia will be a time of spiritual, physical and mental renewal. We are open to discussing any deep questions or doubts you may have about life, God or other topics. We want to meet people where they are in their spiritual walk, then encourage and equip them to grow in order to better influence their world around them.
