Christian Service Brigade at Providence Presbyterian Church

You can think about Christian Service Brigade at Providence Presbyterian Church as a kind of ‘Christian Boy Scouts.’ However, rather than emphasizing what it means to be a good citizen of the United States (a good thing in itself!), we emphasize what it means to be a good citizen of the kingdom of God. What it means to be a godly Christian man. To learn about our philosophy of discipling young men, we encourage you to read a short article written by our pastor, and leader of CSB at Providence Presbyterian Church: “Discipling Young Men.”

All of the adult leaders of CSB are Christian men who are all members of Providence Presbyterian Church; however, participation in the program is open to all boys and young men in the community. We currently have two different programs (Stockade and Battalion), for two different age groups that both meet in the fellowship hall at the church on Wednesdays, 7:00-8:30 pm, from September through May.

For more information about the individual Stockade and Battalion programs at PPC:

Stockade at PPC (for boys, ages 8-11)

Battalion at PPC (for young men, ages 12-18)
