Mark has a life of experience outdoors. He has over 20 years of experience facilitating top-rope rock climbing and rappelling. Mark loves everything water and gained his first canoe guide experience in 1977 at age 11. Each year he has led our 30-mile whitewater canoe trip down the Flambeau River. He has logged and led several canoe trips to Quetico Provincial Park in Canada, kayaked the Apostle Islands in Lake Superior, and spent an unreasonable number of nights backpacking and camping under the stars in remote areas of the West and Midwest.
Providing safe adventure programming gives us a platform on which to build redemptive relationships. Real relationships allow us to do the Ephesians 4:15 ministry of wrapping the Truth in Love. It is the Truth of God, put forth in His Word, and carried forward by God’s Spirit that will impact kids’ hearts for eternity.
