A Spencer church is using its own “boot camp” to help area children learn life skills and respect for authority.
According to Eyewitness News 5’s Marianne Silber, the True Vine Baptist Church started the boot camp program to teach children from its congregation — as well as children from across the nation — about becoming better citizens and worshippers.
During boot camp drills, the church’s parking lot looks more like an Army post than a place of worship.
Retired U.S. Army Sgt. Kenneth Williams teaches drill for the program. He said the children, some of whom are as young as 5 years old, are required to dress in fatigues, learn to march — and follow orders.
Hey, they stole my idea!
