Many organizations that emphasize an achievement process have a top honor to recognize those who have dedicated themselves to the organization and it’s program. Our top honor is called the “Herald of Christ.” The “HOC” is both an internship process and the award given to the young man who after completing all of the requirements looks to be, in the eyes of his HOC committee, a genuine herald of the Lord Jesus Christ.
Herald of Christ, then, is the pinnacle of 15 years of discipleship in which a young man is prepared to lead courageously as a servant leader and speak with confidence about his faith and God’s Word with the understanding that it is his legacy to influence all generations.
A young man cannot begin the steps to receive this honor until he is 16 and must complete it before his 21st birthday. We require the minimum age of 16 because we believe that by that time a young man will have been buffeted by the winds of temptation and the world enough to begin to reveal his level of commitment, not to Christian Service Brigade, but to Christ and His kingdom.
Below, in brief, are the requirements for and the expected outcomes from completing the Herald of Christ internship:
