YOU CAN HELP US START AN OUTDOOR ADVENTURES MINISTRY IN PERU!

I have the privilege to partner with many incredible outdoor adventures ministries all over the world.

Project 54 is the coolest fund raiser I’ve ever seen. On one day (the last Saturday of August) climbers summit all 54 fourteeners in Colorado to raise funds to provide gear and outdoor leadership training for outdoor ministry programs all around the world, including dozens of countries in the Developing World.

Spacebook | A New Platform that Rivals Facebook | Get Social Outdoors

There is another book besides Facebook which has influenced the over 106 billion people who have ever lived on the earth, and will continue to influence each and every person who ever will live on this earth until Christ returns. The book I’m referring to is: Creation.
