TLBC is partnered with the Buffalo River Arkansas Chapter of the national Cross Trail Outfitters (CTO). CTO is all about “Guiding the next generation to Christ through the outdoors.” CTO seeks to teach kids about our hunting and fishing heritage while sharing our faith through a wide range of outdoor activities throughout the year.
We provide the mentorship, training, and gear for kids to go hunting and fishing while ensuring a wholesome and fun environment. As mentors called by Christ, we share our passion and lifelong skills in the outdoors as the natural path to expose boys to the life-changing truth of Jesus. While this is primarily for boys ages 7-20, there are also opportunities for families and girls to participate in some CTO activities.
We also offer a CTO Connect Group/Sunday School class on Sunday mornings at 9:00 am to disciple young men in the faith in-order-to fully live the life that God designed for them. We have found it easier to build boys than to repair men and we have seen “train up a child in the way he should go” lived out! Please check out this exciting ministry right here in the heart of the Ozarks. Feel free to call our CTO leader Duane Hada for more information at (870) 404-7999.
