Adventures in Odyssey Club and Trail Life USA Team Up

Stephen Ashton 2 Comments

Focus on the Family’s Adventures in Odyssey Club is highlighting Trail Life USA as a featured charity in the ministry’s popular membership program for children this month.

Adventures in Odyssey Club members receive access to unlimited episode streaming of Adventures in Odyssey audio dramas dating back more than 30 years. These audio dramas help children grow in their faith and apply God’s Word in their lives through inspiring stories.

Trail Life USA is a Christ-centered outdoor adventure, leadership, and character development ministry for boys that partners with local churches to empower men to develop the next generation of character-rich servant leaders.

This month, Adventures in Odyssey Club members exclusively can listen to an episode titled “Walk Worthy,” an audio drama that explores what it means to live with integrity as members of Trail Life USA. Additionally, Bob Smithouser, Focus on the Family’s producer of the Adventures in Odyssey Club, visited with a local Trail Life USA Troop in Colorado to create a video story for Club members featuring interviews with fathers and sons about why they appreciate Trail Life USA’s God-honoring, character-building scouting alternative for Christian families.

The Adventures in Odyssey Club highlights a charity several times each year to introduce members to opportunities to become involved in living out their faith. Previous groups featured include World Vision, Open Doors and AWANA.
