adventures in learning for boys

About CSB

There is no greater call we can answer than to be the tool that God uses to unlock a young person’s potential. CSB Ministries provides weekly programs that enable men to guide groups of boys through adventure-packed, action-filled experiences that grow young people closer to God…and equip them to be our leaders of tomorrow. The Crossroads Christian Church Christian Service Brigade is a program designed specifically for boys and young men age 7-18. Annual events include:  Fishing, hiking, & overnight camp outs, Camp Hickory Hill events and the StocKar building and racing event.

During the school year, the boys meet on Wednesday nights at Crossroads from 6:30pm-8:00pm. Our 2020-2021 Program has been cancelled. Please check back to see our Fall 2021 kick-off date.

Tree Climbers

Tree Climbers is designed to engage men in becoming spiritual fathers to their sons and to the fatherless. This weekly adventure offers men the opportunity to spend time teaching boys age 7 (2nd grade) God’s Word. Simple projects and games, along with memorization and life application of God’s Word, help build relationships and facilitate the discipleship of boys in a fun and comfortable atmosphere.



Stockade is designed for boys ages 8-11 (3rd-6th grade). Boys are discipled toward Christ and biblical manhood through a comprehensive process of life skills, physical and mental activities, fun, service, achievement, Bible memory, and stories. Adult Christian men serve as role models and demonstrate Christian manhood in action.



Battalion is a discipleship ministry in which Christian men build personal relationships with young men ages 12-18 (7th-12th grade) and mentor them to be effective Christian leaders. The young men in Battalion share experiences in peer group leadership through weekly meetings, the achievement program, service projects and outings, helping them to become leaders by leading.

You may be one of the many men who have fond memories of taking that little rough block of wood and turning it into something to be proud of. We view StocKar Derby as a chance for boys and young men to learn the importance of taking time and effort to bring order and beauty to a raw material while learning to use tools, principles of christian character, and good sportsmanship.
