Endurance Summer of Adventure (ESOA) is an outreach training program that uses a variety of outdoor activities as a tool to share the gospel. The first few weeks of the program will be spent in Lakeside, Montana where you will train, attend lectures, and hone your skills in the outdoors. Topics during the lecture phase include ‘Basics of the Faith’, ‘Bible Study’, ‘Character and Nature of God’ and more. The next weeks are spent on an overseas outreach which will enable the students to utilize their gifts and skills in sharing the Gospel cross-culturally. Each outreach concludes with a debriefing time designed to help students process through their entire experience.
Students in Endurance Summer of Adventure will not only be equipped spiritually, but will gain skills training in outdoor activities as well. During the afternoon portion of the lecture phase, students will spend time participating in outdoor recreational activities and developing outdoor skills-sets applicable to a life of adventure and missions 4 hours a day, 5 days a week. The program will serve to give the students the ability to continue in an outdoor lifestyle.
The Endurance Summer of Adventure seeks to use the outdoors as a door into the lives of people who may have never heard the good news of Jesus. You will be equipped to evangelize and disciple while using the passion for the outdoors that God has given you. Outdoor adventure can provide an open door to the hearts of people who might otherwise be closed off to hearing the Good news of Christ.
