MinistryWatch Highlights Trail Life USA as a “Shining Light.”

This week MinistryWatch, an independent donor advocate facilitating the information needs of donors and providing information on charitable organizations, highlighted Trail Life USA as a “Shining Light.”

The following is an excerpt from a MinistryWatch email:

“For 20 years, has engaged in investigative work that warned donors and others about Christian ministries to avoid.  However, an equally vital part of our work has been to raise the profile of ministries doing great work.  We call these ministries “Shining Lights,” after Matthew 5:16, which encourages us to “let your light so shine before men that they would see your good works and glorify your father who is in heaven.” 

Today we feature Trail Life USA, a Christian alternative to the Boy Scouts of America.  This remarkable group has grown from a start-up just a few short years ago to a group that now has nearly 30,000 members. You can find the first installment of the new “Shining Light” column by clicking here.
