As a ministry of Briarwood Church, the mission of Troop 254 is to assist parents in the raising of sons to grow in character and in favor with God and man.
We do this through the traditions, structured programs, and character training emphasis of scouting. Our ministry is to serve both boys and their families, strengthening family relationships and assisting parents in preparing the future leaders of tomorrow. Our inspiration is taken from God’s commands in Deuteronomy and Proverbs.
“These commandments that I give you today are to be upon your hearts. Impress them on your children. Talk about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up.” – Deuteronomy 6:6-7
“Train a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not turn from it.” – Proverbs 22:6.
“The purpose of the Boy Scouts of America as incorporated February 8, 1910 and chartered by Congress in June 1916, is to provide for boys and young adults an effective educational program designed to build desirable qualities of character; to train in the responsibilities of participating citizenship; and to develop personal fitness.”
