State Tabernacle COGIC
Spirit Of Excellence Program
Spirit Of Excellence
God’s mandate is that we “train up
a child in the way he should go”.
We are to teach God’s laws and
precepts to them. The Spirit of
Excellence Program brings together the ideals from the International Church of God in Christ’s
Young Women of Excellence and
Young Men of Valor. We will explore areas that will stimulate
changes in their spiritual and natural lives. It is our endeavor to
stimulate and promote growth in
areas of self-discipline, selfassurance, leadership. We will lay
the foundation to build the confidence needed in our youth to take
family, church, school, community,
and city to heights unknown.
