in each of the : fun Many girls think that earning badges is just for ... But those sneaky leaders,
they know badge work is a great way to introduce girls
to a variety of ! life skills Furthermore, leaders should keep in mind the Ministry Values of AHG AHG is designed
to protect the innocence of children.
Media of all types
must be chosen with purity,
and God’s glorification
in mind. AHG’s program is
developmentally appropriate and
does not intend to “hurry” a child in mastery
but to enjoy the process
and learn along the way.
The program is progressive in nature,
encouraging each girl
to become competent
in a manner which encourages development but does not rush it. AHG believes that
a leader can only lead others
to a stronger relationship with Christ
if the leader is also
maturing in relationship with Christ,
as evidenced by
and personal spiritual growth. AHG believes that one’s service
to the AHG ministry
should be of excellence
and befitting our Lord. AHG believes that strategic alliances
are important and vital
to the success of the ministry.
With this in mind,
alliances must be carefully chosen
and must be reflective of
the Statement of Faith
and the values found in the AHG creed. AHG believes that --
through a longevity of experience, consistency in messaging,
and a modeling of Christ’s love
through the AHG program --
the culture can be countered,
raising up godly women leaders
for the coming generations. AHG believes that
each person is created in God's image
and desires to commune with Him
and seek His will for their life.
The vocation that God has revealed
to each person
is of great merit,
despite societal messaging,
for we are not of this world
but in this world. Each person is a child of God
and made in His image.
Each person is to be treated
respectfully and fairly,
whether they are a Christian or not.
The dignity of each girl and volunteer
must be maintained
despite the person's background,
past experiences or socioeconomic group. AHG believes that financial stewardship
and organizational integrity
is of utmost concern and a direct reflection
of Christ through His ministry.
AHG believes in the importance of godly governance and encourages transparency
with the work of its directors. Special Events

Leaders, remember! In addition to all that happening while in the great outdoors, through two other program elements: it also is encompassed in the AHG service patriotism and . Service Older girls are encouraged to grow in their understanding of and commitment to service. They will no longer be able to rely on the troop service events alone to earn enough hours for a service star each year. Rather, they will have to look for opportunities in their community.
The hope is that this will begin a
lifetime love of service to others. Older girls are also encouraged to distinguish what service truly is. For example, an 8-hour "youth service day" doesn't really count as 8 hours of service if 1 hour was spent eating lunch and playing frisbee, 1 hour was spent in a water fight at the end of the day, and multiple 15 minutes segments were spent chatting with friends. patriotism our country and defending the principles
