A Christ-Centered Philosophy
Our staff is committed to give each guest a clear understanding of the Gospel as presented in the Bible. Through a variety of teaching methods, we strive to guide people to study and understand God’s Word as relevant, absolute truth. Our staff are selected based on their spiritual maturity and their ability to model the Christian life in grace and truth. We believe that we serve Christ by serving the people that God has placed in our ministry.
A Guest-Focused Environment
A guest is the most important visitor on our grounds. They are not dependent on us; we are dependent on them. They are not outsiders in our ministry; they are our ministry. We are not doing them a favor by serving them; they are doing us a favor by allowing us to serve them. Our desire is to find out where each guest is in his or her life physically, socially, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually and to help each one to grow in every area for the glory of God.
A Challenge-Based Program
Life is full of challenging opportunities that mold us to become more like the Savior. Our purpose is to provide guests with adventure experiences that lead to the discovery of God’s grace, thereby confronting each person to grow in his or her relationship with Christ and others. We seek to provide a safe environment where each guest can choose to step beyond his or her comfort zone into a new level of learning and growth. Ultimately our goal is to help people trust more fully in God by encouraging them to voluntarily participate in challenging activities.
