I’m a Parent.
And I know that raising boys today is no easy task.
“I realized that though I could give my two boys many things as a loving mother, what I couldn’t give them was an example of what it means to be a godly man. For that they would need to see Christian masculinity modeled. I don’t know what I would have done if it were not for the opportunity that Christian Service Brigade gave my sons to be discipled by amazing godly men.”
Raising boys today is no easy task.
Christian Service Brigade | Canada knows how parents may struggle with raising their boys. We know that boys think, learn, mature, and play differently than girls. Scripture teaches (and scientific research confirms) that the needs of a boy change as he grows. This is why our DISCIPLESHIP PATH (a 15-year spiritual growth roadmap) includes resources that are designed to be age-appropriate and boy-approved. We offer action-filled discipleship programs for boys ages 4 through 18.
We exist to bring boys and young men together with godly men to learn how God has intended for them to live.
“I know that investing time with my son to train him to be a godly man was my responsibility but I didn’t really know where to start or what to do. When I found CSB I realized that I wouldn’t have to figure this out on my own. Not only did they provide my church with the resources and support we needed but the CSB Ministry created a community of men serving together where I was surprised to find myself growing as well!”
Brigade can play a vital role in shaping your son’s character and passion for God. Luke 2:52 states, “And Jesus increased in wisdom and in stature and in favor with God and man.” Our programs are modeled from His example and designed to help develop a boy in four key areas: mental, physical, spiritual and social.
Brigade helps boys and young men to use their minds to engage with the Bible and with God’s creation that surrounds them. Our programs and materials are designed to exercise their minds as well as their bodies.
“Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect.”
– Romans 12:2
A boy’s body “is a temple of the Holy Spirit” that was given to him by God and is a precious gift.
Brigade’s programs are activity-based and designed to put a young boy’s energy into active and healthy play. Our programs have exercises that help develop a boy’s dexterity, hand-eye coordination, and teaches him to play well with others in healthy and uplifting ways.
“Or do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit who is in you, whom you have from God, and that you are not your own? For you have been bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body.”
— 1 Corinthians 6:19-20
Imagine your teenage son graduating high school able to stand firm spiritually; ready to face the world with Jesus Christ as their leader, the Holy Spirit as their guide and fulfilling their calling in the Kingdom of God.
Brigade’s purpose and mission is to “Build Godly men of today and tomorrow.” Each of our programs (Tree Climbers, Stockade, Battalion, and Herald of Christ) is designed to be a 15-year road map to help foster and develop the spiritual characteristics and qualities necessary to live a life for Christ.
“so as to walk in a manner worthy of the Lord, fully pleasing to him: bearing fruit in every good work and increasing in the knowledge of God; being strengthened with all power, according to his glorious might, for all endurance and patience with joy;
— Colossians 1:10-11
God did not create boys and young men to live in isolation. He redeems them into His family and places them in the midst of a world desperately in need of the Good News that God gave His Son so that all may have eternal life. Helping boys understand their place within the church and the world is a vital component of Bridade’s ministry.
“For as in one body we have many members, and the members do not all have the same function, so we, though many, are one body in Christ, and individually members one of another.”
— Romans 12:4-5
“Christian Service Brigade had a huge impact on my life. The relationships and mentoring from Godly men were crucial in my spiritual growth. The achievement-oriented program helped me to develop a self-discipline that continues to influence me today […] The ministry / leadership tools I use today are a direct result of the skills I developed in the Brigade program.”
Imagine your son embarking on a journey to learn how to follow Christ while being mentored by men who take a vested interested in showing him what a godly man looks like.
Imagine your son’s father or male guardian spending more time with his boys, building a stronger relationship together.
Imagine your son’s zest for living as he goes on adventures and enjoys action-packed activities with other Brigade youth while developing Christian friendships that can last a lifetime.
Imagine the comfort you will feel as Brigade Leaders help mentor and shape your boy(s) to become the godly men Jesus wants them to be.
