PURPOSE OF VIDA NUEVA:   Vida Nueva is a youth weekend for young men and women which aims to concentrate closely on the person and teaching of Jesus Christ.  Vida Nueva explores basic Christian beliefs to provide those who attend the weekend a deeper and more meaningful relationship with Christ as they share His love in a dynamic way. Vida Nueva also explores how to apply this knowledge in our everyday lives.

WHAT HAPPENS ON A VIDA NUEVA WEEKEND?  Vida Nueva accomplishes its purpose through talks given by pastors as well as everyday individuals who are not pastors.  Each talk is then discussed in small table groups.  The basic atmosphere of Vida Nueva is one of love, Christian fellowship, singing, laughing, and worship.

WHO SHOULD ATTEND A VIDA NUEVA WEEKEND:  The age requirement is that the individual be 15 to 20 at the beginning of the weekend.  There are separate weekends held for young men and young women.  Each attendee must be sponsored by someone who has previously attended a Vida Nueva, Tres Dias, or Cursillo-type weekend.

WHERE IS THE WEEKEND LOCATED?  The weekend is held at the Camp of Colors located approximately 6 miles from Dahlonega, Ga., on Highway 9 South.  You can find a map to the campground at  The address is 3186 Hwy GA-9 Dahlonega, GA, 30533.  The phone number is 706-864-0764Please use this number in case of emergencies only.
