HOLY ORDER OF ST. TIMOTHY
The Holy Order of St. Timothy (HOST) is not an independent group but is dependent of the ICCEC. It is the name of the youth of the International Communion of the Charismatic Episcopal Church in Europe. It was given to them during the Youth Camp 2008 in Remagen, Germany. Timothy was the Disciple of Paul, and Paul was the first Apostle who brought christianity to Europe. At that time, Romans were killing christians, so Paul decided to commission the youth very young: Timothy was consecrated a Bishop at 20 years old, which is why it was decided that we, the ICCEC youth in Europe, would have Saint Timothy as our patron Saint.
To be an example to the believers in speech, conduct, love, faith and spirit. (1 Timothy 4:12)
To lead the young people into having a personal relationship with Jesus through the apostles’ teaching, fellowship, the breaking of bread and prayer (Acts 2:42), and to equip them to live in communion with God, within the family, the Church and the community.
