Position Description: The Troopmaster oversees and coordinates all of the program volunteers (who, in turn, work directly with the Trailmen). He is a member of the Troop Committee, where he represents all of these “direct contact” leaders.
Bio: My name is Greg McLaskey, I have been a member of Stockton First Baptist for 5 years and was excited to be a part of the team that just recently launched Trail Life at our church. I've been a Christian for 42 years and I am certain that in order to grow as a man, one must pursue a deep and abiding relationship with God. My intention is to encourage the young men involved in Trail Life to also pursue God in their individual and group time. I had been a Boy Scout as a kid and an Assistant Scout Master a few years ago. I have taught Children's ministry, taught community groups, conducted men's ministries, do divorce recovery, counsel married couples, do community evangelism and prayer, fight against human trafficking, work for right to life ministries, and run a ministry called "Save our Stockton". I am trying to start a "Stockton House Of Prayer" by partnering with pastors of other churches, and I believe that God will provide a place in the community soon! I have 2 grown daughters and 5 grandchildren. Although I never had a son of my own, I always felt that, as a Christian man, I had the responsibility to pour into the lives of other young men, even if they were not my own children. That is what I have the privilege to do in the lives of these boys in Trail Life. My mission in these boys' lives is to encourage them to be faithful to God in everything they do, for them to become faithful stewards of God's grace to impact the community they live in and, later on, to become good citizens, husbands, fathers, and Godly leaders of others.
