"Our life and our death is with our neighbor. If we gain our brother, we have gained God." said St. Anthony the Great. In cooperation with the Serbian Orthodox Church, this summer our team of 10 American Orthodox students will seek to engage Serbian students in real friendships and discussions about our life In Christ in the Church. Joining our team will be Orthodox students from such nations as Russia, Ukraine, the Republic of Georgia, Jordan, Japan, Albania, and Romania. With the invitation and blessing of Serbian patriarch Irinej, we will live in a hostel in downtown Belgrade, participate in the life of the local Church, host Bible discussion groups, plan daily fun activities, and live life together with new friends. It will be intense - living, cooking, eating, and praying together for two months. During July, we will spend two weeks at a monastery in southern Serbia studying the Scriptures and learning the Psalms together. Come join us as we work out our salvation in Christ together.
