Providing Adult Leadership
Everyone agrees that boys need to be around Christian men to help fully develop their personal character. But how is that going to happen if his father is not around? The boy’s mother is an incalculable positive influence on her son, but she can’t be the father as well. That’s where the PALs program steps in.
PALs is a Christ-centered mentoring program that uses outdoor adventures to reach boys from single parent families. PALs tries to reach these boys when they are still young and impressionable. The late Joe Perry, who founded PALs, strongly believed that if you can direct a boy down the right path now, it can have a positive influence for a lifetime.
PALs participants go on 4-6 outdoor events each year. Fatherless boys are mentored on the trips by Christian men who are trained and vetted members of Prestonwood Baptist Church. These men have gone through extensive background checks as the safety of the boys is paramount.
The purpose of the trips is to provide boys the excitement of an outdoor adventure in the context of teaching about Christian manhood.
We emphasize four key elements in the framework of teaching boys what it means to be a R.E.A.L. man.
R – Responsibilities of Manhood (2 Timothy 3:16–17)
E – Express Truth (1 John 3:18)
A – Accept God’s Best (Jeremiah 29:11)
L – Lead (and follow) Effectively (1 Timothy 4:12)
As believers, we are called to give of our talents – not only financially, but also our spiritual gifting through volunteering. We have safe and secure ways to give and opportunities to bless others through legacy giving, and a myriad of volunteer opportunities.
Prestonwood offers many ways to use your gifts and talents in serving others – from cameraman to choir member, technician to teacher, parking attendant to prayer warrior. Click here to find out more.
