The 1st Sons of Success (S.O.S) and Daughters of Destiny (D.O.D.) Global Leadership Institute for the Bryant Team will take place April 16th-19th, 2009, at Camp Baber. The core purpose of S.O.S. and D.O.D. is to build and maintain self-esteem within our young people, promote healthy relationships, enrich the lives of African-American youth and empower them to develop their God-given potential, and speak purpose into the lives. The ages of participants of S.O.S. and D.O.D. are 11-17.

We need the following commitment from each conference:
5 males 5 females

30 males 30 females

15 males 15 females

20 males 20 females

The Bryants have selected a very powerful and anointed staff, so this experience will be successful. The Rites of Passage will culminate at our Christian Education Congress in July 2009. It is mandatory that individuals are present at the Global Leadership Institute to participate in the culmination activities at the Christian Education Congress.
