Boundary Waters Adventure

The Boundary Waters Adventure program returns for the summer of 2023, and we look forward to welcoming 14 young adults on a grand adventure. The Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness and Voyageurs National Park are wilderness areas within the Superior National Forest in northeastern Minnesota.

Participants will learn practical outdoor skills, as well as experiencing personal growth and service. The United Church of God needs leaders and pillars who can not only face difficulties with perseverance and courage, but who will also trust and work well with others, and challenge themselves towards growth in leadership and spiritual maturity. This is why BWA is in a wilderness setting.

As a participant you will be learning more about the wonderful God that created you and how to become a better servant leader in the mold of Jesus Christ. This is how you will “make positive ripples” during the BWA and beyond. And it is about bonding with a team of like-minded adventurers during your multi-day canoe trip of a lifetime. Yes, sweaty and bug bitten, you will build friendships and learn indelible spiritual lessons traveling in a pristine wilderness, BWA style!

Participants will have numerous opportunities to explore where they are in their development spiritually and as leaders. This will involve the following components:

  • Daily discussions of leadership skills and attributes, as informed by scripture
  • Small group discussions and leadership opportunities – each person will have one opportunity to lead his/her group part of a day
  • Exercises designed to explore who a person is, his/her values and how he/she relates to others
  • Prepare a sermonette (men) or campfire talk (ladies) discussing some principle or personal experience regarding servant leadership as a Christian.

Psalm 19:1, “The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament shows His handiwork.”

Please contact me if you have any questions—or would simply like to discuss the program. Then “take the challenge” and apply!
