I'm looking for some churches who either believe in the power of scouting or the power of community outreach to children and youth. If you believe in both you will certainly want to embrace this opportunity with your prayers and encouragement.
Ty LaValley soon departs to serve in Cote d'Ivoire to serve in mission by helping the United Methodist conference and churches there to establish scouting ministry as a way of engaging communities and growing the church. This is something of a pilot program as indigenous scouting ministry could take root in countries all over the world!
This week Ty has been on a bike ride adventure touring the United Methodist churches of the Augusta District. He's continuing to actively build support, but needs more people and churches on the team.
Here's Ty's mission profile as he soon departs to serve the United Methodist Church in Cote d'Ivoire. Or you can keep up with his adventures at his personal Facebook page or FB group. Or you can keep up with his blog. But do try to keep up with him and actively encourage his good ministry.
