young men in discussion


Men working together in the garden


men eating together



… alone with God
… together with like minded men
… to examine your life
… to make changes


For many years young men have benefited much from a stay on Kanaan. Life in our KanaanTeam offered them distance from the distractions of the world. In time alone with God, in fellowship with other men, in discussions about our daily Bible readings or the challenges facing young men today, they came to see their relationship to God in a new way. In confidential counseling and under prayer a break was made with the past and a fresh start could be made.


Young men who want to learn to live their lives according to God’s will and live responsibly in his presence are invited to come and spend time with us. We challenge them to examine their past and establish new goals. Mutter Basilea’s vision for Kanaan was, that Jesus command, “Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.” (Matthew 22:37), would become the guiding light in our lives. We want to help you see how that can happen in your life.


In August and September we spend time teaching about the basics of christian life and our community. The rest of the year allows for more personal prayer time for those who would like to live and work with us for a while. This can be from a few weeks to a year. One critical requirement is the ability to understand and speak English well.
