Philmont Varsity Scout Training

Course: Delivering Varsity Scouting Philmont Training Center: JULY 12-18 I have seen Varsity Scouting work and know it can work wonderfully. I have been excited at the vibrancy and enthusiasm it created and what it did for both boys and adult leaders.

Capturing the Vision of Scouting

Our efforts as Young Men advisers and Scout leaders can have eternal consequences. When I was a mission president, one particular zone was having a lot of success. I asked one of the zone leaders, “Elder, what’s going on here?” He said, “President, in high school I ran cross- country with a handful of friends. We trained hard and competed together. For four […]

The Power and Impact of Training on Young Men

I was called to serve as stake president in November of 2004. I came to this assignment with a long history of church service and I had experienced and learned many things from that service.
