Our theme for the 2022-2023 Cadet season is “AMAZING.” This theme is based on Joshua 3:5, “Joshua told the people, ‘Consecrate yourselves, for tomorrow the Lord will do amazing things among you.’” Throughout this year the boys will be reminded of a few things: that God is holy, and we must prepare ourselves if we are to be in His presence; and that God has done, is doing, and will do amazing things. These reminders will help the boys strive to be holy and recognize the many ways in which God blesses them. We challenge you to be an example to the cadets in your life – look for, find, and share the many amazing things God is doing. Show others that God is amazing as you encourage them to live for Jesus.
Cadet Quest Theme
The AMAZING theme will also be emphasized throughout the year in the Cadet Quest magazine, particularly in the B Lessons of the Bible studies, as well as the counselor editions of these lessons. These lessons are also available separately from the magazine, so you can use the theme lessons without subscribing to Cadet Quest.
Additional supporting materials include themed bookmarks and posters. The bookmarks make inexpensive but useful gifts that keep the theme in front of cadets. The posters boldly proclaim the theme while making a great addition to your Cadet bulletin board and/or meeting area. (Your club will receive a smaller version of the poster in your fall start-up packet.)
Counselor Theme Resources
We’re putting together a whole package of theme-related resources for counselors, and we’re putting them all online. We’ll be adding to these materials over the course of the summer, so stay tuned!
However you utilize the upcoming theme, we hope it will encourage you and your cadets. We challenge you to be an example to your cadre and club by acknowledging that God is doing amazing things. We pray that this theme will be used to reach boys in your church and community more effectively.
