Baptist Scouting: Reaching, Teaching,
and Ministering to Children, Youth, and Families

Offered by the Association of Baptists for Scouting, this conference introduces participants to a Baptist Scouting Ministry as effective fulfillment of the Great Commission and a tool for Christian education through the religious emblems program. Class participants will become better equipped to start effective Baptist Scouting Ministries and to strengthen existing ones. In addition, they will experience proven methods of reaching individuals and entire families for Christ, deepening their spiritual lives, and contributing to church growth. In addition, class members will learn more about the importance of effectively representing unique Baptist thought and conviction in the larger Scouting community including the National Scout Jamboree. Conferees will also learn about the ministries of the Association of Baptists for Scouting. This conference is recommended for Baptist Scouters and others serving in units chartered by Baptist churches as well as Baptist ministers.
