THE NEED FOR WILDERNESS RETREAT IS GREATER THAN EVER
As urbanization and digital connectivity are on the rise, people have less of a reason to escape the confines of city living. Access to productivity is literally in our pockets. Demands are higher than ever, and our schedules are probably the fullest they have ever been in history. Busy, active lifestyles can become a trap. Busyness deceptively drowns out God’s voice and it becomes easy to get lost in the noise, lost to ourselves, broken in our fellowship with God.
Christian Outdoor Leaders are CRUCIAL servants that the church desperately needs.
OUTDOOR LEADERS HAVE THE TOOLS TO CHANGE THE TRAJECTORY OF OUR WORLD
In this day in age, Christian outdoor leaders carry a greater responsibility than ever. Many people’s lives are essentially urban and quite confined. The need for retreat is only increasing. There is good news, however. God seems to be alluring his people, as ecotourism is on the rise and concern for the natural world is causing people to long for a better work-life balance.
This is where the church has an opportunity! Christian Outdoor Leaders are CRUCIAL servants that the church desperately needs. As the next generation feels more and more lonely, wilderness ministries brilliantly connect people to Jesus through a small group and 1:1 approach.
