At Wilderness Trek our mission is to help create a place God can do important work in the hearts and minds of our participants.
“This time together was amazing! We grew so much in our faith and with each other! Getting to appreciate God’s creation in a – whole new way was such a blessing! I really relied on God for
my strength to keep going more than ever!” – Amanda
“It was an amazing experience. The group and the trail guides that I hiked with were very encouraging and my relationship with God grew tremendously.” – James
“The experience was incredible overall and I would
absolutely do it again. Thank you :)” – Madi
There’s something for everyone, whether Trek is a new experience or you are coming back again!
“This is my second Trek trip and I will be coming back as long as I am able too I have 2 young kiddos and would love to share this experience with them” – Luke
“The week I spent on Trek was awesome and extremely eye opening. I learned so much about myself throughout that week and have been able to apply those lessons beyond the trail. My biggest highlight from Trek was the self reflection I was able to do. Trek provided a safe space for me to be open and to speak more confidently about my faith, which hasn’t always been easy for me.”- Darrius
“I felt very safe the entire time. The difficulty was great. It was enough to push my limits at times but not scare me away as a first time treker.” – M
“I’ve been on Trek three times and I would say, for me, Trek means fellowship with God and others. Being able to share the experience of God in His creation alongside all of the amazing people from our group was incredible. It’s hard to say what my biggest highlight from trek was because there were so many, but if I had to choose one it would be our devotionals gathered around the campfire. Getting the chance to hike and explore the vastness of God’s creation with amazing people is truly an experience that I will never
forget”. – James
Faith based adventures since 1976.
At Wilderness Trek, we seek discernment and wisdom to fulfill God’s mission through the avenue of our ministry and to know the plans He has made to continue bringing both youth and adults into His creation. Many of you know that our key focus is to make disciples and train leaders. We use adventure discipleship as a spiritual catalyst to help teens and young adults grow into the people God has called them to be. We prepare people and teach them the skills they need to be lifelong followers of Christ to impact their families, community, and those they come in contact with. Spiritual formation and transformation is the first priority of everything we do and the adventure of backpacking is second.
Will you please become one of our monthly donors before the end of 2023 to help a teen go on one of our life-changing spiritual growth experiences next year?
Because we believe price should never be a barrier to spiritual growth, 100% of our summer participants receive a subsidy or full scholarship. Your monthly support will help teens by giving them a once-in-a-lifetime experience that will give them the tools they need to become lifelong followers of Christ, which will impact their family, community, school, and workplace for years to come.
