Our Mission Let the mountains move your faith.

Our Mission: Faith-based wilderness experiences.

Our Mission Statement: Transform lives and pierce hearts by God’s presence and power as experienced in the grandeur of His creation.

Vision: Wilderness Trek provides faith-based wilderness experiences. We are a backcountry guide service dedicated to leading people spiritually and physically through wilderness areas. Since 1976 we have guided over 20,000 teens and adults to become better disciples and leaders through multi-day backcountry experiences. Our motto is: Grow, Connect, Experience, Challenge.

Our mission can be summed up by the following objectives:

  • We are an independent non-profit ministry– We are a self supported non profit ministry with proper oversight and accountability through our board of directors.
  • We are a faith-based outdoor ministry – We offer Christian based outdoor programs, which provide individuals from all ages and all backgrounds an opportunity to develop a closer relationship with God through programs in multiple wilderness environments.
  • We offer mission and service training – We provide Christian outdoor programs geared towards building character, leadership development, and team building in order to prepare participants for service to God locally, nationally, and globally. We also offer mission specific training for people entering full time ministry or the mission field.
  • We offer a place to serve in ministry – We offer a place for those who are passionate about faith and the outdoors a place to serve God’s Kingdom through positions of leadership in our programs as well as through outreach to the outdoor industry.
  • We participate in “program tithing” – A portion of all of our programming spots go towards less fortunate teens and families. We partner with urban development programs, after school programs and other ministries to provide opportunities for people who may not otherwise have a chance to participate in outdoor programs a chance to experience the outdoors.
