Trail Life Troop

Prepare the Way Ministries is the charter organization for Central Oregon’s only Trail Life Troop for boys aged 5-20. The Troop is named OR 1199 from Psalm 119:9, “How can a young man keep his way pure? By living according to your Word.”


Our vision is to be the premier national character development organization for young men which produces Godly and responsible husbands, fathers, and citizens.


Our mission is simple and clear: to guide generations of courageous young men to honor God, lead with integrity, serve others, and experience outdoor adventure.


“Walk Worthy”
