"Dare to be great, to be more and do something extraordinary?"
We must dare to be great, to realize that greatness is the fruit of toil, sacrifice, courage and selflessness. To be great is to not only make a difference in your own life but when you have made the difference to reach back and help others do the same for themselves. The S.O.A.D. organization looks for ordinary individuals who strive to do extraordinary things in life, in ministry, in business, and in their communities. We look for these individuals to honor their hard work, dedication, and commitment to make a positive change in the world.
