To encourage people to grow in their relationship with God as they experience Him through nature, outdoor activities, practicing God's Word and through camaraderie with other sportsmen.
This ministry began in 1977 in Muskegon, MI utilizing watercraft and mini motorcycles as an outreach to at risk youth. it became so effective and grew so quickly, it incorporated in 1982 with the name "Bikes For Christ". As it continued to expand its outreach even further, it began using many diversified types of outdoor adventures as a tool to reach out to as many outdoorsmen as possible. Because of its diversity, it changed its name in 1993 to Christianity Outdoors.
Christianity Outdoors works in cooperation with other sportsmen groups, businesses, churches and other community agencies who share our commitment to our mission. They must also share our desire to pass on to the next generation America's heritage of positive and wholesome outdoor experiences which improve a person's well being and protect an area's ecology. From its very beginning, this ministry has been a "green" organization striving to protect the environment and encourage the wise use and careful use of our natural resources.
Through various types of small group outdoor adventures which emphasize the advantages of conservation and living the principles taught in God's Word, positive relationships are built and a greater appreciation of God's creation is developed.
One of the greatest needs in all our communities is for male mentors. Christianity Outdoors offers a mentoring program for male students and hopes to expand this opportunity in the future to female students. Committed mentors meet with students on a regular basis. The students receive personal encouragement along with biblical instruction coordinated with outdoor education.
To ensure the safety of all participants and the integrity of the ministry, all Christianity Outdoors volunteers and staff undergo a background check and interview process. All persons who teach specific subjects for in the ministry excel in that subject or are professionally certified in their respective careers.
