The Grand Rapids Cadet Council is one of many councils of the Calvinist Cadet Corps. GR Cadet Council is mainly on the Southeast side of Grand Rapids. We are an independent (non-denominational) youth ministry organization whose purpose is to provide the local church with a ministry program that will enable them to effectively share Christ's love with boys from their church and community. 

Since 1952 the Grand Rapids Cadet Council

has endeavored to help boys to grow more Christlike in all areas of life.

This 2018 - 2019 Theme is: Be a Blessing

It is based on 2 Corinthians 9:8, which says, “And God is able to bless you abundantly, so that in all things at all times, having all that you need, you will abound in every good work.” God has given us so much, more than we ever need. In response to this we are to be a blessing to those we come in contact with.


Suggested Theme Song: "Make Me A Blessing"

Make me a blessing, make me a blessing,

Out of my life, may Jesus shine;

Make me a blessing, O Savior, I pray,

Make me a blessing, to someone today
