MENTORING OUT OF THE BOX - STOCKAR DERBY
Mentoring made easy.
Do you remember building and racing your first pine wood derby car when you were a boy? Perhaps with your father, grandfather, uncle or mentor.
You were given a pine wood block. It was your job to come up with the car design. Your mentor told you that you could choose to either design for performance and speed, or to try for best car design and body style. You wanted to win First Place and to have the fastest car of all! So you were taught about how body shape and profile has an impact on speed and wind resistance. You grabbed a pencil and some graph paper and began sketching out the concept for your car.
When the car concept and design was done, you and your mentor used all kinds of wood working equipment to mill the body: Band saws, files, and drills. You cut here, rounded an edge there, and slowly, the body of your design started to take shape.
After you made sure the body profile was perfect, you began to sand it to a smooth finish, gave it a glossy paint job and affixed race decals. Then you added the axles and the racing wheels. Before long your racer was finished. What a beauty it was! It was glossy smooth with a low-profile and just looked fast!
On race day, you and your mentor checked your car in for the derby. You had so much excitement watching your car fly down the track, racing in multiple heats and taking the checkered flag! Your car was a winner! And with trophy in hand, you and your mentor posed together for a photo in the winner's circle. It an awesome pine car derby experience that would last a lifetime for you both!
MENTORING OUT OF THE BOX - STOCKAR DERBY is an activity-driven discipleship kit for men who want to share the same joys of building and racing pine cars with today's boys and to teach them the biblical principles of integrity. It was made for men who want to start making an investment into boys so that they are better equipped for life-long godly living.

Stockar Leader's Guide is INCLUDED!
MENTORING OUT OF THE BOX - STOCKAR DERBY includes a copy of our Stockar Leader's Guide.
The Leader's Guide provides a detailed framework for you (and any man helping you!) to plan, prepare and lead the activity-driven group meetings - we recommend at least four - with the boys you've invited. While the Leader's Guide is intended for use in Christian Service Brigade's full program, the included STOCKAR DERBY SUPPLEMENT explains how to maximize using the Leader's Guide for StocKar Derby with the adjusted schedule we recommend for MENTORING OUT OF THE BOX.
The Leader's Guide (and corresponding Outpost Adventure that is used by the boys) is designed to help men teach the biblical principles of Integrity. Boys are presented with fun-filled activities that teach them about integrity while at the same time learning to craft a pine wood racer!
MENTORING OUT OF THE BOX - STOCKAR DERBY was designed to be done together with other men. You don't have to do this alone! Share the journey and experience with other men: Your friends, brothers, uncles, like-minded dads, or even men of the church. You will end up having support and encouragement (and some shared commitment) throughout the mentoring adventure as you team up to mentor a group of boys
Who knows? You may end up strengthening your own relationships with the men around you as you share this Mentoring Adventure together!
Today's boys need you.
MENTORING OUT OF THE BOX at its core is meant to help men lead, equip, and disciple today's boys to be able to be stronger, more capable, and more equipped as they begin their own life journey.
Look back at your own life. There were times when another man made an investment into you, helping to walk with you through life's ups and downs. He imparted knowledge and wisdom that made you stronger, better able to weather life's storms and to be more capable of living life more fully.
Now it's your time to pay it forward. Whether it's your own son, your neighbor's boys, or the boys of your church or community, they are all in need of what you have to offer. As God's Word commands us as men,
“Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God, the Lord is one. You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your might. And these words that I command you today shall be on your heart. You shall teach them diligently to your children, and shall talk of them when you sit in your house, and when you walk by the way, and when you lie down, and when you rise." — Deut. 6:4-7
Just think about how a small investment of your knowledge, skills, experience, and wisdom could impact even one boy. More than that, imagine how much impact your leadership and your demonstration of godly love will have on a boy in need.
