Registered Adult Leaders -- Mark your calendars now for our TLUSA Northeast regional conference coming to South Central Pennsylvania at West Shore Free Church. It's within driving distance for most of us, is planned to be low cost event, with an inexpensive overnight camping option.

Our goal is to grow our ministry leaders (at all levels) and to build belief in our volunteer driven support model as an effective ministry structure through the following attainable goals in the NE. www.tlusa-ne.org

We will RENDEZVOUS' in Pennsylvania

We will gather to SHARE information about our unique program, GROW belief in our Christian ministry, BUILD fellowship relationships with each other, GAIN a bigger picture view of our Christ-centered organization, and PRAY for each other as we work together in HIS service.
This regional conference will be conducted by local Area Team Members to:
  • Provide position-specific direction to Area Team members Charter Org. and Troop leaders 
  • Meet with several National leaders from the Home Office, your Regional Team Leader, many Area Team Leaders, local Charter Org. and Troop Leaders
  • Grow local Area Teams 
  • Announce new TLUSA developments in person.
  • Share the importance of our Volunteer Driven Core Value and Levels of Support 
  • Promote the difference between Area Team Meetings and Trail Gatherings (both monthly meetings that occur in an Area)
  • Provide an outlet for potential Area Team members including potential PMs to come and learn about TLUSA and what Area Service entails
  • Encourage Area Team members who also serve at the Troop level to share their knowledge and duplicate themselves by mentoring and raising up someone to take their place in the Troop
  • Pray together that we may in fact Walk Worthy, bearing much fruit for God's Glory.

Several members from our Home Office in Camp Aiken (Mark Hancock, Rob Green, and Caroyln Colbertson ) will be present to encourage us in our efforts to support and serve charter organizations in our NE region.

  1. This is going to be a fun and informative gathering. Carolyn and I, and others who will be coming from the Home Office, really enjoy meeting the people who God is using to change lives of Trailmen and their families.
