Caleb has been attending Boys’ Brigade for around four years now. I was aware of the BB was a part of KCBC church and after visiting, I could see the value and enrichment BB would bring to Caleb’s life. We decided to join the Anchors’ program in 2014. Tim (Anchors Leader) did a terrific job leading the anchor boys and made Caleb feel very welcome and settled into Anchors.
Caleb and I have been able to share the BB experience together and we have enjoyed the father and son bonding that has come from it. I’ve helped out as an assistant leader, which has been a terrific experience and we’ve really enjoyed the Father & Son camps we’ve attended.
I’ve valued the life skills, personal development, and Christian input BB has given Caleb. The emphasis on teamwork, discipline, responsibility as well as providing a physical outlet with fun games and activities – is integral to the BB philosophy. And it works!
I’ve seen Caleb benefit from engaging in the challenge of weekly games & activities; having fun; making friends; learning to work in a team; the value of respecting his peers; and Christian discipleship.
Boys’ Brigade has been a good journey for both of us. I’ve appreciated helping as an assistant leader, sharing Bible devotions, getting to know the boys, and learning to appreciate the uniqueness of each young person who God loves.
In our confusing and fractured society where young men often become directionless – lacking a moral compass and a right of passage into manhood – BB helps boys understand God’s love and purpose for them and the opportunity to grow into responsible young men.
