“They asked each other, ‘Were not our hearts burning within us when he talked with us on the road and opened the Scriptures to us?'” Luke 24:32

TEC is designed for Christians who not only desire a strengthening of personal faith, but also would like to make a greater commitment to serving Christ through discipleship.

TEC does not work directly with the problems of the church or society, but instead it works to form a group of young people who are equipped to deal with these problems. Participants will become more effective leaders in their local congregations as a result of the TEC and Beyond TEC experiences.

The person who attends a retreat should recognize that being a Christian involves the responsibility of reaching out to others in spreading faith.

The retreat is open to mature youths — mainly men and women between 15 and 21 years (usually those that have gone through confirmation), however, all ages above 15 are welcome.
