We have been eyewitnesses to the impact that a Fellowship based hunting or fishing trip can have on these good people.

If you have joined us on an FA trip, you know what we mean. It's the change of the daily rhythms of life, a different landscape, a kind word or quite simply spending time with others who aren't looking for anything outside of simply being present.
We extravagantly care for people and allow them to unwind in a safe, encouraging environment. We send them home and they return to what God has called them to: often with a tired body, but a refreshed spirit and outlook.
We consider it a privilege to play our part in encouraging, supporting and giving back to those faithful folks who tirelessly serve and give of themselves to others.
