[expand title=”What is Christian Service Brigade” trigclass=”csb-trig” targclass=”csb-targ”]Christian Service Brigade is a ministry for fathers and their sons, ages four through high school. We believe there is no greater call for a man than to be the person God uses to unlock a young man’s potential. To that end, CSB Ministries at Denton Bible Church provides weekly programs that enable men to mentor and disciple groups of boys through adventure-packed, action-filled experiences that grow young men closer to God and equip them to be the leaders of tomorrow.[/expand]
 
[expand title=”When does Christian Service Brigade meet?” trigclass=”csb-trig” targclass=”csb-targ”]We meet Monday nights from 6:45 to 8:30PM- late August through mid-May. Our meetings start off with dodge ball, pitting sons against dads. Boys of all ages love competing with their dads in dodge ball combat. It’s a time of fun and exercise for all. After dodge ball, all assemble for worship, pledges, announcements, and prayer before adjourning to their individual age groups. The second half of our meetings is dedicated to helping boys and dads learn life skills, bible study, and what is means to be a Christian Father and son.[/expand]

[expand title=”What is meant by the phrase Building Godly Men of Today and Tomorrow?” trigclass=”csb-trig” targclass=”csb-targ”]The men of today are the men now serving or learning to serve Christ and disciple their sons. We exist to help these men serve and lead in their family, their church and the community! The men of tomorrow are the young men and boys we raise up. We exist to build up these young men and boys in Christ so they can be the godly men of tomorrow.[/expand]
 
 
[expand title=”Who is the leader of Denton Bible Church Christian Service Brigade?” trigclass=”csb-trig” targclass=”csb-targ”]Clark Vaughn “The General” has led Christian Service Brigade since 1986. He is has been faithful to lead dads and sons with grace and much encouragement.[/expand]
 
 
[expand title=”Why is it only for boys and not girls also?” trigclass=”csb-trig” targclass=”csb-targ”]Christian Service Brigade is a father/son ministry. Studies show that boys and girls are different – not only physically but mentally and emotionally as well. In partnership with the local church, CSB program provides an atmosphere where boys can learn what it means to be a man of God from godly Christian men.[/expand]
 
 
[expand title=”Can I drop off my son to participate?” trigclass=”csb-trig” targclass=”csb-targ”]At Christian Service Brigade, we don’t separate the men from the boys. Young boys can participate only when paired with a man to sponsor him.[/expand]
 
 
[expand title=”Can boys who don’t have fathers join too?” trigclass=”csb-trig” targclass=”csb-targ”]Yes. Young boys can participate when paired with a man to sponsor him. We have had many young men participate in this successful arrangement. Contact Jeff Sears for more information.[/expand]
 
 
[expand title=”Can I join with my grandson(s)?” trigclass=”csb-trig” targclass=”csb-targ”]Yes, a grandfather may participate with his grandson(s).[/expand]
 
 
[expand title=”What if I have two boys in separate age groups?” trigclass=”csb-trig” targclass=”csb-targ”]Each situation is different, such as age difference, maturity of the boys, dad’s ability or understanding of his boys and other factors. A discussion of these factors can help decide between several options.

  1. Both boys can attend the same group with their dad regardless of age
  2. They can split up, having dad split his time between the groups with mentors
  3. Christian brothers can shepherd one of the boys in his absence.

All of these approaches has been successful and are common in everyday CSB circles.[/expand]
