KPM extra 25+

Daniel Skonc | Articles | KPM |

My ministry has ended and I am now working full time. Time spent at youth group remains just nostalgic memories. Maybe I think I already have enough knowledge. I do not have a place to serve anymore. I am already full of information plus have no place to relax. Continue...

Masterpiece - KPM 2018

Daniel Skonc |

It might have been the hottest spring days ever when we met in Žilina with another 600 brothers and sisters from all around Slovakia and we dove into the main theme of Masterpiece. We are in His hands, He created us in our mother’s womb, He formed us through every circumstance and situation in our life, and He gifted us with spiritual gifts according to His will. Our visual was LEGOs and huge colorful LEGO pieces were part of the stage as evidence of the creativity of our God who made us all part of His big Masterpiece. Continue...

KECY TVT 2017

Denisa | News | Articles | KECY |

Summer is nearly upon us. You wouldn’t know it for the cold, snowy days we’ve had recently, but on the calendar it lingers just ahead, beckoning us warmly to pack away our coats and scarves and start dreaming about the end of school, sunny days, family trips, and KECY camps. We recently hosted our yearly KECY training weekend in Zilina with 83 camp leaders from 11 different churches across Slovakia of all different denominations. We did, indeed, have snow during the weekend, but it didn’t ruin the mood. Everyone was excited to be there connecting with old friends, making Continue...

KPM 2017: Obedient and courageous step

Daniel Skonc | Articles | Events | KPM |

25 years ago. Persil ad ran on TV, Metallica wrote their song Nothing Else Matters, one person from our team got stuck in a chasm, our director Peter Hrubo got married, Evka got her first Barbie, Darinka fell in love for the first time, Michal learnt to how to walk and most of our interns were just a sparkle in the eyes of their parents. And right at that time in 1992, in the log cabins of High Tatras there was held the first Conference of Youth Workers. And in March 2017, we decided to celebrate this fact with steps instead of fireworks Continue...
