The President's Connection

Christian Service Brigade Regional Directors have been attending MissionFests and Promise Keepers conferences across Canada in the past months. At the Vancouver and Winnipeg MissionFests, informal surveys revealed approximately 1/3 of all the ministries represented were manned by an alumni of Christian Service Brigade. What a testimony to the heritage and legacy of CSB in Canada! Brigade is still at work, building the godly men of tomorrow who will lead Canada’s churches, missions, and para-church ministries.

CSB has the tools churches need to build godly men of today and tomorrow. Our new booklet, Imagine helps pastors, youth pastors, lay leaders, and church members catch the vision of being a church with a mission to disciple the boys of today to become the godly leaders of tomorrow. Imagine your church equipped with a 15-year discipleship path for your boys and young men. Imagine your teenage guys graduating high school able to stand firm spiritually, ready to face the world with Jesus Christ as their leader, the Holy Spirit as their guide and the spiritual maturity to fulfill their calling in the Kingdom of God.

Your church needs a copy of this booklet. Your friend’s church needs the Imagine booklet that lays out a vision of the future while remaining grounded in today. For your free copy, send and email to: and we will make sure you have one in hand.

At Christmas, I told you the story of a Grandmother in Ontario who decided to become one of Gideon’s Men by supporting CSB Canada $30 a month for a year. She had seen first-hand how her grandson’s involvement with CSB had changed him for the better. You can join her and become one of Gideon’s Men. We need 300 donors willing to commit just $30/month for 1 year (or a one-time donation of $360).

As president of CSB, it has been my joy to connect with leaders and units across Canada. After a conversation with one Captain, I am currently writing the biblical section of a new Battalion Mission on Blacksmithing. I am talking with others about nominations for awarding the Honourary Herald of Christ to men of integrity who have been discipling the next generation of men for decades.

I also want to remind you that Tuesday February 28, 2017 is going to be National Day of Prayer for Christian Service Brigade across Canada. Will you set aside 15 Minutes to pray for the ministry that you are a vital part of ? If so could drop me a note telling us the time slot that you would be praying.

In addition, we are looking for prayer requests from people all across Canada for the ministry. They will be added to our Prayer Request List that will be sent only to those who indicate they will be praying for us. To protect your privacy where names are mentioned we will use only first names. Send your requests directly to our Vice President, Harold Browne at

Your partners in ministry,

Steve Grove

Giving thanks to God that this ministry is Christ-centered and Word-saturated.
