KCHAG is more than just buildings. Its core vision drives pioneering ministries to have each person see, hear and experience unforgettable moments where His word is being preached.
During the summer of 2015, KCHAG hosted several groups from various churches and organizations, creating a space away from the normal pace of life. In addition, the Camp hosted the Annual Assembly of the Union of the Armenian Evangelical Churches in the Near East (UAECNE), the Christian Endeavor Youth and Teenage Camps, the Women’s Conference, and soon the children’s camp.
“KCHAG” is an acronym which, in Armenian, stands for Krisdonyagan CHanitz Amarnayin Getron (Christian Endeavor Summer Center). This name represents a camp experience, run by the UAECNE which has left an indelible mark on the lives of many Armenians.
Unfortunately, the decades following the 1975 civil war left KCHAG a casualty of war, and years of occupation left much of the camp property, including the Chapel, dining hall and cabins with major damage, some totally destroyed.
Through the perseverance, faith and love of donors and friends, a dedicatory celebration was held on May 3, 2014 which marked completion of 70% planned renovations.
The fundraising effort for KCHAG continues. Additional resources and efforts are needed to ensure that KCHAG continues to maintain its rich heritage and realize the site’s full potential for ministry and community development.
Renovation work remains to be completed to restore this beautiful Center to its full glory.
We pray that God will lead additional generous donors, such as you, to support this important project.
