Trek appoints new Trustee

Just as mountains are made for climbing, our Trustees are made for Trek. Wilderness Trek Christian Camp “Trek” is happy to announce the appointment of Mr. Michael Bennett as our newest Trustee. Michael guided through its former outfitter Wilderness Expeditions for 5 years and considers Trek an important part of his spiritually maturing years.Here are Michael’s own words “The ministry of WTCC is important to me because it’s one of a few personal experiences in my life that have played a major role in shaping and molding my faith into what it is today. I’ve seen this same transformation in the countless individuals I’ve taken into the backcountry, as well as with the wonderful people I have been blessed to serve with over the years as a guide. God’s wilderness provides us a very powerful avenue to better see, hear, and join Him in a more personal and intimate relationship.”

Michael’s dream for Trek is to have multiple types of programs that are focused on  bringing people into a closer relationship with their creator, while at the same time, presenting opportunities to educate its participants on the importance of environmental stewardship through their time in His creation.”

When not climbing mountains, Michael works with Corey Construction in San Antonio, Texas. He worships at the Oak Hills Church, also in San Antonio and lives in Boerne, Texas. Michael studied Recreation, Park & Tourism Science at Texas A&M University.

Trek is proud to have Michael serving on our Board of Trustees and we look forward to his guidance. Michael also serves as a Leader on our Wilderness Trek Operations Crew which is actively planning Trek’s new “Summit & Serve” details for next Summer, 2014.

When asked what his favorite verse was, Michael offered: Mathew 4:20; “Immediately they left their nets and followed Him.” Knowing Michael we believe he would have been one of those who left their nets to follow. God has blessed Wilderness Trek with a group of faithful Christians as Trustees and Michael certainly adds to this blessing.

If you would like be involved with the Operations Crew or any other Trek Crews (committees) in planning our program for next summer please contact Bob Harris – Trek Executive Director, 214-766-1995,
