2ND MILE ADVENTURES’ VISION
Go a new distance: Physically, Mentally, and Spiritually. Mission: Come alongside and C.L.I.M.B. (Come Learn Invite Multiply Build) together, through discovery and discipleship, of God’s plan for our lives.
BRIEF HISTORY OF HOW 2ND MILE ADVENTURES GOT STARTED AND WHY IT EXISTS
2nd Mile Adventures started in 2001. While the organization is only 14 years old, we had been doing adventure ministry for 20 years via a youth ski trip every April to Winter Park Colorado. It was in 2001 that we decided to push men, women, and youth to Go A New Distance: Physically, Mentally, and Spiritually for His glory. Since that commitment we’ve grown into a 5 trip organization. All trips are designed to get men, women, and youth outdoors and reconnect with the Lord. After the trips volunteers and leaders connect with trip participants to help disciple and grow their relationship with the Lord.
WHAT MAKES A SUCCESSFUL WILDERNESS ADVENTURE TRIP?
Being pushed to new physical achievements and using the peaks and valleys each day to show how God shows up in similar ways in our lives.
HOW 2ND MILE ADVENTURES INTRODUCES PEOPLE TO CHRIST
We do this through our lives. Letting our lives and sharing our stories and how we came to Christ. We hope through this that people will recognize that we are all sinners and we’ve all fallen short of the glory of God, but by His grace and love and sacrifice everyone can have a relationship with Him no matter what you’ve done our been through.
