The church is a community of people where we learn, grow, take responsibility and
introduce friends to faith in Jesus Christ, a community to be transparent and honest, helping our
fellow students to grow in our love for God and with each other.
The cells are small communities of young people guided by young people where
everything said above can happen. In any group we find leadership at any level, the youth cells
make use of this natural dynamic.
Cells are not simply "the last cry." They have been around for centuries. When Jesus
began his ministry, he chose a few people to share his life with them, encourage them and then
send them (Mark 3:13-16) - All these are the values of the cells.
