church of Christ at Hillcrest
Trail Life troop members share a common vision, striving together to “guide generations of courageous young men to honor God, lead with integrity, serve others, and experience outdoor adventure.” Our program is a Christ-centered leadership, character, and outdoor adventure program for young men. Our mission to “Walk Worthy” comes from Colossians 1:10, “...that you may walk worthy of the Lord, fully pleasing Him, being fruitful in every good work and increasing in the knowledge of God…”
Our troop operates as a ministry of our charter organization, Hillcrest church of Christ. Young men ages 5 to 17 are encouraged to join our Troop to participate in scheduled events and activities. We have meetings twice per month. Additionally, there will be at least 2 campouts per year and several service opportunities, and other events and activities to participate in together.
Our Troop philosophy is that all members meet together, breaking into age-specific program groups at various times during Troop meetings. This provides a well-rounded program that integrates leadership opportunities for the older boys, and role models to help teach the younger boys. Program activities are designed to grow life skills and provide faith-building experiences. Fulfilling a Trail Life USA core value, our Troop is entirely volunteer-led. Parents are very involved and are welcomed to participate. There are many opportunities for service. In fact, parents are encouraged to join as Trail Life USA members so that they can help further the mission of Trail Life USA and assure the protection of the boys as part of the required two-deep leadership. Just ask our Troopmaster or the Committee Chair for an invitation to join and a link to complete that process will be emailed to you.
Our goal is for most of our Troop activities to be free of charge to families. We can do this with our successful fundraisers. We hope to raise enough money each year to cover member costs all the way through our Summer Adventure! Please contact a member of our leadership team if you have any questions along the way. We look forward to your family becoming more involved in this wonderful faith-building adventure!
