The aim of the conference is to provide spiritual and moral development, intellectual education and a possibility to relax for young people of Faith Church, so they can spend their free time on a high-standard, Christian level. The rules of the conference serve the purpose of helping and protecting those who support the aims of the conference while respecting the rights of others, as well as localizing those who hinder the achievement of these purposes.
Faith Church purchased the area located at the foot of Szent György hill in 2016 and further expanded it in 2018. Since Faith Park, this is the greatest investment of our church. The vision of senior pastor Sándor Németh for the primary purpose of the premises of over 30 hectares and the newly developed convention center is „to create a high-standard spiritual workshop” at the foot of the Tapolca „Witness hills”. Thousands of church members took part in the development providing physical help, financial means or spiritual support. The protection of the complex and its environment is the interest and goal of all of us. All participants are required to always take this into consideration and act in accordance, so as to protect the convention center.
