Who We Are

The Calvinist Cadet Corps is an independent (non-denominational) youth ministry organization whose purpose is to provide the local church with a ministry program that will enable them to effectively share Christ's love with boys from their church and community.

 

Founded in 1952, the Corps has more than 650 clubs throughout North America. We encourage any evangelical Bible believing church to consider using our ministry programs. The organization uses the title "Calvinist" to honor the Protestant reformer, John Calvin, who devoted his life to the religious education of God's children.

Cadets offers a "club" atmosphere. Uniforms and routine help to instill a healthy pride in its members.

 

Cadets offers merit badges and certificates to honor achievement.

 

Cadets offers a safe haven where good behavior and productivity are expected.

 

Cadeting provides many experiences and offers many opportunities that help fill the gaps in a boy's Christian upbringing. The adventure of outdoor activities, the hands-on projects, the mentoring role model of a Christian man, all serve to build strong members of the body of Christ. This is a goal of the cadeting ministry.

 

This opportunity is for boys ages 1st grade thru 8th grade for churched and also an out reach to non-churched boys. We meet every other Monday night from 7-9 pm at the Education building.
