A few words from a…

Dad who was equipped to disciple his son

“I know that investing time with my son to train him to be a godly man was my responsibility but I didn’t really know where to start or what to do. When I found CSB I realized that I wouldn’t have to figure this out on my own. Not only did they provide my church with the resources and support we needed but the CSB ministry created a community of men serving together where I was surprised to find myself growing as well!”

Young man who learned to lead

“Without the experience I had in the Battalion program during junior high and highschool I would never have grown into the leader I am today. Where else could I have not only learned what it means to be a Christian leader but got practice leadership skills in an environment that was fun and not threatening?”

Youth pastor who realized he needed to develop leaders

“As the pastor for junior high and highschool at my church I knew I needed to build leaders. I had learned how to be an effective Christian leader from my time in Battaion growing up. I decided to partner with CSB as the tool that I could use to build my young men into effective leaders for our youth ministry.”

Single Mom who needed godly men to disciple her sons

“I realized that though I could give my two boys many things as a loving mother, what I couldn’t give them was an example of what it means to be a godly man. For that they would need to see Christian masculinity modeled. I don’t know what I would have done if it were not for the opportunity that CSB gave my sons to be discipled by amazing godly men.”

Man who became a missionary
