After teaching and coaching for 24 years, Kevin and Gina Bickel resigned their positions in 2008 to spend three months in Senegal, West Africa in 2009. Upon their return, they felt led to pursue a desire that God had given them years prior, to start an outdoor ministry. Seeking God's direction, they were led to northwest Montana. They moved to Columbia Falls in January 2013.
Since that time they have had groups backpack in the Bob Marshall Wilderness, have helped churches with VBS, led several summer camps, and have been given the added responsibility of pastoring Canyon Baptist Church in the town of Hungry Horse, where they now also live.
OUR MISSION, VISION, ACTION, & PARTICIPATION
Those currently in ministry would maintain and strengthen their passion. The young people being worked with would develop a strong faith that would enable them to be the leaders that will impact the next generation for Christ.
There are several venues used to accomplish the mission:
Beyond Borders for Christ- a Wednesday night kids program that runs during the school year.
Summer in the Horse-
K-5th, weekday mornings Monday-Thursday during June and July
Summer intern Program- college-age volunteers helping with kids and other ministries
held at Canyon Baptist Church
Tuesday Night Bible Study
Interested in being a part of what God is doing here? There are a number of ways to get involved.
the most critical need of all ministries
We are continually seeking God's direction for ways to reach those in our area. As He opens doors, and sometimes closes them, we want to be sensitive to what He wants to accomplish here. Our goal is to be productive, not just active.
