Duty to God Promotion Patch Requirements

“Duty to God” is at the heart of the Scouting movement. Religious emblems reinforce this spiritual component and promote many of the values found in the Scouting program. The purpose of this “Duty to God Promotion Patch"  is to encourage youth and adults to learn about and promote the religious emblems programs.

Requirements: Youth and adults must:

1.  Attend or coordinate a presentation or information seminar on religious emblems (sample resources and suggestions are available at www.praypub.orgExternal Link or order the DVD below).

2.  Make a commitment to fulfill their “Duty to God”.  For example:

  • Youth can commit to earning the religious emblem of their faith at an appropriate time, making a presentation on religious emblems to another unit, helping younger Scouts earn their religious emblem, helping to establish a religious emblems program in their local congregation, etc.
  • Adults can commit to having 50% of families participate in the religious emblems programs, commit to nominating a worthy adult to be recognized with an adult religious award, serving as counselor in their local congregation, etc.
