This course has been developed to train individuals in the effective use of the wilderness environment and its dynamic as a tool for introducing others to a growing, intimate relationship with their God. While the focus is on the wilderness laboratory, this is a leadership course. The skills that are introduced are highly transferable into any environment. Our goal is to help students to acquire tools that will help them increase their effectiveness in moving people toward God.
