Expeditions Unlimited exists to impact the lives of youth and adults through the use of God’s creation and outdoor adventure experiences; focusing on partnering with groups to point people towards Christ.
Expeditions Unlimited’s main goal is to create an atmosphere where teachable moments can be used to change lives. We focus on details and logistics so group leaders can focus on growing their team, learning God’s word, and having fun. We serve youth pastors and youth leaders who are passionate about making a lasting impact on students’ lives and promoting true, undistracted worship of our Lord Jesus Christ and God the Father.

What we believe
God has given mankind certain tools to be used to find Him and point others towards His Truth. The first is His creation. This world declares the glory of God (ps. 19) and through introducing people to that creation we believe we will be introducing people to God’s character. Through a greater knowledge of God’s character, people are drawn towards a deeper relationship with Him.
God has also left us His Holy Spirit to convict us of sin, show us God’s purpose for our lives, teach us, and help us. This voice of the Spirit often goes unheard because of the fast passed lives we live and the constant noise we are bombarded with. We believe that the Spirit is more clearly heard when distractions are stripped away and we quiet ourselves enough to listen. Expeditions Unlimited creates an atmosphere that draws people out of their hectic lives and into a quiet that is conducive to listening.
We also believe that God has placed mankind in community with each other. Through relationships we are taught, encouraged, and held accountable. Expeditions Unlimited recognizes this as a powerful truth and has created a place where those relationships can be developed and grown. Our ministry seeks to provide students and adults with the space, both physically and emotionally, that those relationships need in order to blossom and grow.
These three truths form the core of who we are as a ministry. When a community of people who desire to know God or are passionate about pursuing Him are pulled out of their normal environments and given an opportunity to undistractedly reflect on God in His creation, life changing decisions take place both in their lives and the lives of people around them.
