John Beaty 1949 - 2020

 John Beaty went into the presence of the Lord on December 5th. My early memories of John include playing football at the Battalion comporah with a very fast, wiry, short, tough guy. I also had the privilege of  serving as an assistant leader with him in an Observer Battalion cabin at camp, and visiting him of and on through the years.

Connie Patrick 1926 - 2020

Connie Patrick was reunited with her husband Bob as she entered the presence of the Lord November 5. I have fond memories of Bob leading crafts and Connie running the camp store when I was a Stockader at Brigade camp. The Patrick cabin at Stony Glen was built in honor of Bob.

Herald of Christ: Evan Proverbs

Evan Proverbs was awarded the Herald of Christ award on October 25th at North-Mar Church of the C&MA. He is a member of North-Mar’s Christian Service Brigade, Battalion Unit 1180.

Evan successfully completed all requirements necessary to receive the highest honor awarded by Christian Service Brigade. The Herald of Christ award is the culmination of the Battalion achievement discipleship program. The award requires a minimum of a nine month internship with a committee of men guiding the candidate on a comprehensive journey through Bible study, memorization, and doctrine; biblical introspection; as well as ministry and community service.

Dale Kinkade, Regional Director for CSB Ministries, presented the award in the presence of family, friends, and members of the church and Battalion.

Evan is a resident of Southington, Ohio, and the son of Tom and Sherry Proverbs. Evan is attending Ohio University and perusing a degree in Media Arts – Games and Animation.

Evan's testimony includes God working greatly through Battalion. He began his essay, “When I first began my journey in the Battalion program, I did so quite unwillingly. However, throughout my walk, I have realized the true colors of Battalion and the guys there will be lifelong friends and brothers in Christ.”

Battalion 1180 is pleased to recognize Evan’s steadfast commitment and endurance in this great accomplishment.
