Faith In Scouting

Scouting Endowment Fund

The Church has chosen to use five youth agency programs:

  • Boy Scouts of America
  • Girl Scouts of the USA
  • Big Brothers Big Sisters (Amachi Partnership)
  • Camp Fire USA
  • 4-H

 

These agencies offer a unique opportunity to minister to young people. The five were chosen because of their Christian teachings, long-standing connection with local congregations and their recognition of the God and Country program.

We, the Church, are endowed with certain responsibilities that allow scouting and civic youth serving programs to become a ministry. This is what differentiates us from a civic or community-based club.

If you would like more information on how to give to this ministry through your estate plan, contact us at (615) 369 - 2382 or info@umcdevelopmentcenter.org.
