Discipleship and teaching are not the same thing. Growing in knowledge is a vital component to discipleship, but discipleship has far more to do with learning to be like the men we follow than the information that we are given.
So our achievement process is not just about earning badges, instilling a sense of accomplishment in a young man, or even teaching new skills. Relationships with mature Christian men is the heart of our discipleship ministry and our achievement program is the backbone to that process of growth.
We use achievement to build a bridge between boys and Christ and between boys and Godly men. This is done at the same time the boys are learning important things about God, themselves, others, and how to live in this world in a way that will glorify God.
