Jesus is Lord!

What is a Christian Ashram? The Christian Ashram is one of several movements that has arisen out of a desire to put the power of the early church back into our modern day fellowship. Literally translated the word "Ashram" means "Retreat from hard work" - a time to engage in Christ-centered activities and meditation. All Christian Ashrams are interdenominational and interracial. Titles and other symbols of distinction are set aside that we may worship as true brothers and sisters in Christ under the ministry of an evangelist, Bible study leader, and music team.

What can you expect?
a time of sharing and growth within a Christian Community
inspiring messages
enriching Bible teaching
faith stories of changed lives
great singing and worship
small group sharing and prayer

Where is it being held? Beulah Camp is a wonderful church run camp facility on the beautiful Long Reach of the St. John river about one half hour from the city of Saint John. There is plenty of on-site accommodation available and we will also welcome day visitors.

What about youth and children? They are very welcome! We offer full children's and youth programs and childcare for the very young during main sessions.
