I first heard about Great Adventure Ministries from my older brother who was attending their Tuesday night Bible studies. I was hesitant to come because I wasn’t very interested in studying the Bible, but reluctantly tagged along with my brother in March of 2015. I was pleasantly surprised to be met with many warm welcomes and people who were genuinely interested in getting to know me. This sense of community and friendship kept me coming back. I also quickly realized that this group of people really does live up to the “adventure” part of their name! They have annual ski trips, global mission trips, white water rafting adventures, hiking/camping excursions, and many weekly local events that keep people engaged across a broad spectrum of interests.
Today I find the mix of adventure and participation in weekly Bible studies has provided a community of close friends and believers to walk through life with. I’m involved with the worship team and I am a small group leader for the college-aged group. I look back on that March night in 2015 in a totally different light now. I’m so thankful for all that this ministry has done for my life since then and that I gave Great Adventure Ministries a chance. If you’re even slightly interested or have a friend who is dragging you along (like I did), I think you’ll be happy you made the choice to attend any of the events that GAMe puts on.
