Ministry Description/Mission:

A ministry developed by the Metropolitan SDA church to assist young men between the ages of 10 and 16 realize their potential and build a better future. We do this by providing resources to develop Godly character and equip them to influence the world in positive ways. The program teaches and models God’s purpose for the lives of young men and helps them to learn the leadership skills that will guide them to responsible manhood.
