CE Impact is a new heading that aims to present youth of CE that can inspire us through their story in what we do for this movement.
Hello, My name is Nathan Robb I am 20 years old and from the State of Ohio in the United States of America. Since my birth I have been a part of Christian Endeavor. I grew up around the ministry being active in my Church and state CE. 2014 was a big year when I joined the team who went to the CE World Conference in South Korea. It was a real eye opener for me really starting to understand the core mission of Christian Endeavor. In High School God introduced me to Photography and Videography, I realized that he had given me a gift and I started to use it anywhere I possibly could. Through the Korea trip I ended up working with the CE Mission Weeks in the summer of 2016. That was so much fun and I hope you will check out the Summer Highlight Video on my Website. https://youtu.be/nMsewMcBqXM In the last year I have had the opportunity to travel to over 11 CE Events other than our own State and Church Events. I have been privileged to talk to several churches and individuals about how they can start CE in there church. God has blessed me more than I could have imagined and it is so exciting to see how Christian Endeavor is growing not only here in our country but around the world.

Beside listening to Jesus at the time of prayer and learning from the scriptures, the passage from the CE-Pledge: “and to support the work and worship of my own church in every way possible”, leads to a third way the Lord tells us what he expects us to do. Every endeavorer lives in fellowship with the church she/he and her/his CE society belongs to. Sometimes the advice, a remark or a request of a sister or brother in the Lord tell what to do (or not to do). Also the decisions of committees or the board to take up a project, establish a service or any other activity may indicate, what the Lord wants us to do. In case you have to make a major personal decision, it is wise to discuss the matter with an experienced Christian. God has surely other ways too, to speak to his children, but listening prayer, attentive bible reading and taking advice from brothers and sisters are the principle sources to learn “whatever He would like to have me do”.

We are in a very exciting stage at Christian Endeavour Holiday Centres. Our Board of Trustees decided that Beechwood Court, which has been part of the organisation for over 95 years, will re-open in April 2017.
The Pleasaunce, another Centre will re-open later in the year. Beechwood Court is located in Conwy, North Wales and the Pleasaunce is in North Norfolk.
For many years the Centres were run with the help from Christian volunteers from around the world and we want to bring this idea back. We would like to connect with the WCEU in finding christians who are interested in experiencing new cultures, learning English and developing their faith. The Holiday Centres are used by churches, families, individuals etc. as a place to holiday or meet in a Christian environment. These holidays would have organised activities by leaders who would organise fun and games, excursions and praise and worship. The volunteers we have would be offered accommodation on site, their food and an allowance so they can purchase their essential items. They would be part of the community on site volunteering in the kitchen, grounds and maintenance, house keeping or even as part of the office team.
Our documents for ‘expression of interest’ in volunteering should be going on our website soon.
