Mission Statement

It is our belief that God reveals Himself both in His Word and in His Creation. In a culture that is increasingly disconnected from the outdoor environment and Creation, it is our mission to guide students and adults through the process of coming to a deeper and more personal understanding of this. In Romans Chapter 1, verses 19 and 20, through the Apostle Paul the Holy Spirit shares this truth with us:

“Because that which may be known of God is manifest in them; for God hath shewed it unto them. For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse…” KJV

The fact that God does exist, His qualities and characteristics, His eternal power and triune nature are all revealed in His Creation, as well as His Word. It is the mission of High Sierra Outdoor Institute through thoughtful, age-appropriate, and challenging experiential exercises to lead participants in our Outdoor Education Programs, Seminars, Retreats, and Specialty Programs into a greater understanding of the direct correlations between His Word and His Creation. Our calling is to bring God’s Word to a place of greater relevance in the lives of those that we minister to, as we introduce them to evidence of His signature, written in intricate detail, throughout His wondrous Creation.
