Foundations in Genesis Class
Canyon Ministries is excited to share a new opportunity. The college years can be very confusing and even troublesome for the faith of our young people. We feel called to provide some direction as these gifted young people prepare for life and ministry. As a result, we are now offering a college level trip through the canyon, specifically addressing the struggles of the college student and preparing them for action. The first of these 8-day trips will launch in July of 2014. Throughout the 187-mile trip, students will experience over 100 rapids, take informative and scenic hikes, but most importantly, will learn how to incorporate the creation message into their lives and ministries. The trip will be led by Dr. Bill Barrick, Professor of Old Testament at The Master’s Seminary and an experienced outdoorsman, along with Pastor Jon Albert, founder of the outdoors ministry, Gloryview. When possible, we will work with colleges to provide credit for the trip as well. Although designed for the college level student, all adults (18 and over) are welcome. Please pray God will use this to bless and equip many.
Here is what Nick, a 22 year old college graduate, had to say about his trip through the canyon:
I truly loved my time in the Grand Canyon with Canyon Ministries! It was phenomenal to see all the wonders of God's creation and all the evidences left behind of the canyon being formed by Noah's Flood. I truly had not thought much about the canyon's origins before the trip and certainly had never heard much besides the "millions and millions of years of consistant erosion" story. The staff with Canyon Ministries was so gracious, so knowledgable, and so passionate to share the Creationist perspective of the forming of the canyon. The fact that I possessed no prior geographical understanding was not a hinderance either (though such understanding would have increased the awesomeness of it all!). Thanks for sharing this with me and may it continue to open the eyes of many to the mightiness of our God and may it spur them on to greater obedience to the Great Commission to proclaim His goodness to the world!
