‘Many Young People Are Looking For Ways to Start a Conversation About Faith; They Just Aren’t Sure How to Begin,’ Says Trail Life CEO
October 5, 2021
GREENVILLE, S.C.— Most Christians agree that America is suffering a moral and spiritual decline. With the rise of social media and its negative effects, the push for political agendas in schools and the deterioration of the traditional family model, many parents are worried about the future of their children.
Trail Life USA (TrailLifeUSA.com) is focused on building leadership skills, creating meaningful connections, and fostering deep relationships with Christ in boys across the country. Trail Life is growing boys into men through outdoor adventure. As they are led by strong male role models, boys are learning biblical principles that have endured the test of time.
One way for boys to build confidence in their relationship with Christ is through “Bring Your Bible to School Day,” a Focus on the Family event designed to empower Christian students of all ages to speak God’s grace and truth into the culture around them, starting with two simple steps — bringing their Bibles to school and sharing what God’s Word means to them.
Trail Life CEO Mark Hancock stated, “Many young people are looking for ways to start a conversation about faith; they just aren’t sure how to begin. ‘Bring Your Bible to School Day’ is a great opportunity to do that.”
This sentiment is shared by Dr. Daniel Huerta, Focus on the Family’s Vice President of Parenting and Youth, who commented, “‘Bring Your Bible to School Day’ is a great tool to help young people learn to share the important role faith plays in their lives with their friends.”
Last year, Focus on the Family had 514,609 students register for the event in over 50,000 schools across the nation. This year, as students everywhere are hoping to get back to the “normal” school routine, it’s especially important for young Christians to tell their friends at school about the hope they have in Christ during such a difficult cultural climate. Trail Life is honored to work with Focus on the Family, and encourages all of its’ 30,000+ members to partipate in the event on Thursday, October 7.
