      I’ve read the essay on “One Hundred Scouts” with great interest. The lines “Through Scouting, these twelve and many of their families will be brought into contact with a church and will continue to be active all their lives. Six of the one hundred will become pastors, ” actually aligns with our charter organization goals – our charter organization being a church. We are trying to develop a closer relationship with the charter organization, which has waned over the last few years – and the thought is this information would help do that. Is there data behind these statements? Even if it is dated information, it would prove useful.

      Thank you.

      I know a lot of pastors/priests who were scouts in their youth, so I think the statistic is reasonable. We have seen several scouts move on to full-time ministry. I don’t it’s 6%. But, a larger number of our former scouts have significant roles in their church (deacons, elders, etc …).
