Spring revival is on its way

Students’ Adventures in Krakow, Poland: Gospel of Mark Camp

Mark Camp took place in Cracow on February 22-25, 2019. The camp was all about the inductive study of the Gospel of Mark; that was the only program. The participants studied the Gospel of Mark, chapters 1 through 4. It took them twenty-five hours in total. Each study lasted around two hours and a half. CCX L’viv sent nine of its delegates: eight CCX students and one non-believing student (the latter has already been to some of the CCX events and English camps).

Mark Camp helps students to better understand how to inductively study the Scripture both individually and with friends, how to lead and mentor others, and in doing so, grow in love for God and His Word. It helps to equip and prepare students for ministry in their chapters before the beginning of a new semester, and for many projects including the coming Mission week.


Odessa Lectures: Humans – Social Beings

Relationships surround us on all sides, and they are vital for a person as a social being. CCX Odessa held a lecture on the topic “Destructive Relationships” by Roman Shchetinin on February 14, 2019. Twenty-two listeners heard what it means to be in a destructive relationship and took some short tests to define whether they had ever experienced such relationships or suffer from them at present.

We all are constantly in different relationships – with parents, brothers / sisters, friends, colleagues. For all of the young people who attended this lecture and who are still in search of their soulmate, the lecture proved to be very useful. The students’ feedback showed that they are actively searching for further steps to take for their relationships to flourish and bring benefit. The CCX Odessa team decided to take the students who are interested into the already existing groups and lead the students throughout their journey.
