Operating out of
The discipleship material is not simply the routine humanistic environmentalism or the rugged discovering and overcoming weaknesses that critics and participants often expect. Rather, Outdoor Wisdom Leadership School courses are sound Biblical teaching reaching the issues that today's youth are facing. The learning environment created by the wilderness is unlike any other. Getting out of the normal classroom setting and being completely surrounded by God's creation allows students to open up and explore areas of life and their Christian walk previously unexplored and often not even considered. This exploration of Christ is uninterrupted by all the distractions that have become a part of everyday life for almost all of us. Participating in an OWLS course is an immersion in Christian fellowship and growth, as every waking hour (and hopefully some dream time too) will be spent in a small group community of believers; led in worship and instruction in the Word, several times each day, by staff members who are passionate about helping each student build meaningful relationships with others and, most importantly, with Christ and to equip them with the tools needed to be a faithful witness to Him.
Outdoor Wisdom Leadership School exists to glorify God! We pray that a student “graduating” from an OWLS course will be truly equipped to grow in the faith, and in the community of their home church; and to be able to intelligently proclaim his/her faith in a loving Christ-like manner, to people with differing worldviews, different religions or no religion, to schoolmates, work associates, friends, and searching family members.
