WOODWORTH – First through sixth grade boys will have the opportunity the learn how to be champions on the playing field and mission field during the 2018 Royal Ambassador Congress.
The event April 6-7 at Tall Timbers Conference Center in Woodworth will feature coaches and former professional athletes leading the boys in baseball, basketball, football and soccer mini-camps, as well as demonstrations by Todd Keene, president of the inter-denominational Power Team from Dallas, Texas.
The sports camps and Power Team demonstrations will coincide with this year’s theme, “Mind and Body,” based on Titus 2:11-12.
“Many times as ministers we focus on the soul and spirit but as Royal Ambassadors we focus on the mind and body as well,” said Gibbie McMillan, men’s and ministry strategist for Louisiana Baptists. “Our hope is to use the sports element to capture the attention of these young boys while they are developing. The power team will do amazing feats of physical strength. However their main purpose is to share the gospel of our Lord Jesus.
“We follow the RA track but are open to all young boys grades 1-6,” he continued. “Some churches don’t offer RA’s and this event can help them get started. It is not too late to start, so register soon and expect a great adventure at Congress.”
The cost for RA Congress is $54.50 per person, based on multiple-occupancy.
