Apologia Outdoors is a ministry based in Alabama that encourages spiritual growth by providing encounters with Scripture. They strive to strengthen, support and lift up the body of Christ through building relationships with others while enjoying creation.
APOLOGIA OUTDOORS’ VISION
Apologia uses creation to build the church.
BRIEF HISTORY OF HOW APOLOGIA GOT STARTED AND WHY IT EXISTS
Apologia Outdoors commits to having exceptional stewardship of God’s opportunities and resources to equip God’s people to build His church through outdoor ministry. Our definition of outdoor ministry is: “Using creation as a tool to reach people for Christ.”
Apologia Outdoors designs its trips to equip God’s people to share Christ’s love in word and deed. This is done by using creation as a stage to provide the necessary training for individuals and churches.
Apologia Outdoors views every believer as a missionary, and our passion is to evangelize the world by growing world-changing leaders. Even after the trip is over, it is our intent that these missionaries nurture disciples that nurture disciples. It is Biblical for every believer to show leadership in fulfilling the Great Commission.
