Now I say, as long as the heir is a child, he does not differ at all from a slave although he is owner of everything, but he is under guardians and managers until the date set by the father – Galatians 4:1-2

“Vacare Deo” is a Vacation Bible School for the youth where students are instructed in biblical studies.
- Level 1 – is a fundamental class where we talk about spiritual discipline
- Level 2 – builds on the knowledge gained in Level 1 and equips the student spiritual formation and outreach.
All the classes are bible-based however, other good Christian literature is also used as supplementary study materials. Students do not only work on classroom assignments but have the opportunity to personally practice and experience God through the various disciplines. This exercise instills in them a connection with God, the dynamics of proper christian grown and a lifestyle that honors God. We spice this 8-weeks of summer holidays with picnics and field trips. Our classes are designed to be very interesting and practical. Our trained teachers and instructors are men and women inspired by the Holy Spirit.
“Vacare Deo” is Latin, which means “vacation with God”. Our inaugural program was held in the summer of 2012 which served as an eye-opener chalked a great deal of success. Sixteen out of seventeen students were graduated and honored in a grandeur ceremony. We measured the success by the impact and the transformation in the lives of the students that enrolled and their enthusiasm to continue the second time around. Certainly, the students came in with different expectations but thank God we met our goal. This awesome wave and impact has motivated us to continue this program on a yearly basis and to extend our invitation to other youth in the community.
Considering the moral decadence of our time, training and instruction of the youth in righteousness must be the basis for uprightness, integrity, family, leadership and the root of success. Our failure to give these treasures to our teenagers at this time will be catastrophic to our families, communities, the world at large and the leaders of tomorrow.
We are motivated and compassionate about this vision and therefore take this vacation with God for our youth as a very serious business.
