THE PURPOSE OF THE UNIVERSITY TRAINING
“But flee youthful lusts, and pursue righteousness, faith, love, peace with those
who call on the Lord out of a pure heart.” – 2 Timothy 2:22
The goal of the University Training is to perfect God-loving and Christ-pursuing students in the areas of biblical truth, experience of life, gospel preaching, and character development, all with a view to molding them into useful vessels in the Lord’s hands for the building up of His Body.
Corporate and personal prayer and life practices are strongly emphasized to develop a personal and intimate relationship with the Lord. Trainees will also have the opportunity to blend with peers from universities and colleges throughout Europe. This six-day training will render untold benefit to a student whose heart seeks first the kingdom of God!
In the spirit of training, there will be a strict registration deadline and no part-time attendance is allowed. There will be regulations that will apply to all trainees who attend this training to maintain an uplifted atmosphere.
