Christian Endeavor

Christian Endeavor

Christian Endeavor, association in evangelical Protestant Churches for strengthening spiritual life and promoting Christian activities among its members. The first Young People's Society of Christian Endeavor was started in 1881 by Dr. Francis E. Clark in Portland, Maine. Within a few years the organization had become not only interdenominational but international, and a world union was formed in 1895, with Clark as president. Started primarily as a youth movement, the association now includes all age groups and numbers in the millions. Many denominations are represented in the association's membership.

The Armenian Evangelical Christian Endeavor Union of Syria and Lebanon (Լիբանանի և Սուրիոյ Հայ Աւետարանական Եկեղեցիներու Քրիստոնէական Ջանից Միութիւն) is the youth organization that is affiliated with the World Christian Endeavor Union and the Christian Endeavor International. The CE movement was first established in The Armenian Evangelical Church of Aintab in 1886 which was pastored at that time by Rev. A. Papazian. In 1923, when the Armenians were driven out of Cilicia, Armenian Evangelical Churches were reestablished in Syria and Lebanon followed by the reorganization of the youth ministry through The Christian Endeavour Union. The Armenian Evangelical CE Union of Syria and Lebanon, founded in 1934, is a member of the Union of the Armenian Evangelical Churches in the Near East (UAECNE). It holds a general assembly once per year where reports are read, the budget is voted, some future plans discussed, suggestions are given, and new members of the Christian Endeavor Executive Committee of Lebanon and Syria are elected. The CE Union mostly coordinates with the youth ministries of local churches and at the same time it runs two summer camp sites (Monte Verdi-Lebanon and Kessab-Syria) where various groups (Children, Teenage, Youth and Young couples) organize their summer camps and conferences.
