We’ve partnered with the CBN News Channel to broadcast the entire event. This is the perfect way for boys—and girls—to participate and make a special memory. Gather the whole family together and enjoy the evening of music, fun, teaching, and nationwide fellowship with other Troops and believers around the country.
