Our New StocKar Derby Website!

View the new StocKar website!

The StocKar derby is not only one of the most popular events for many of our men and boys, but it offers a rich opportunity for teaching practical skills and vital spiritual truths.

The StocKar Derby is not just about building cars ... it's about building boys.

Because StocKar is so important to our men and our mission we have designed a website dedicated to promoting and supporting the Stockar Derbies in your regions.

This fun new website features:
  •  Kits, products, and ideas for making cars
  • Resources and materials
  • Help on running a derby
 Take a look and keep coming back as we add new resources and features in the coming months!

Meet Rob Dickerson! RD For Eastern Great Lakes.

We are thrilled to announce the addition of two new Regional Directors to the ministry: Rob Dickerson and Steve Rivers. These men fill two vital roles in the ministry and are both enormous answers to prayer.

This month we’ll be introducing you to Rob, and in next month’s issue of Brigade Connection we’ll introduce you a bit more to Steve.
Rob is the answer to a long time prayer for a new Regional Director in the Eastern Great Lakes Region. Until now Scott Haima has been filling the dual role of CSB President and Regional Director.

We are already seeing the huge benefit to Scott being freed up to lead the ministry from a strategic perspective without the additional responsibilities of a region to maintain.

Rob brings years of ministry experience, a great family, and a love for discipleship in the outdoors. We hope you will enjoy this short interview with him.

Rob  Dickerson Vitals:
  • Age 49
  • Shaped like a sports car
  • Lead Pastor of Life Quest Church, Rochester NY
  • Married 25 years
  • 4 Children ages 13 to 19
  • Hobbies: Parenting teen angst and hammock camping
Brigade Connection: How did you develop a love for the inter-generational discipleship?
Rob: I grew up in Royal Rangers, a ministry similar to CSB but affiliated with the Assemblies of God denomination. Our roots in Royal Rangers is deep, so there are three generations of Dickerson in what we might call faith based scouting. More importantly, though, you could say my family is the poster child for inter-generational discipleship.
