How long have you climbed?
About 10 years. Type of climbing you do:
Rock, ice, alpine, mountaineering, backpacking, spelunking. Highlight of climbing career:
Any time spent in the Wind River Range in Wyoming or on snow and ice is a good time! Some peaks that bring back the most memories include Grand Teton (Upper Exum), Gannett, Mount Helen (couloir ascent) in Wyoming, and Half Dome (Yosemite, CA).
How long have you been a Christian?
I grew up as a Christian, but recommitted my life to Him in 2000 and have been walking steadily with Him since then. Type of ministry you are blessed to serve in
: I have worked as a seasonal instructor at Solid Rock Outdoor Ministries (SROM in Wyoming), leading people to the knowledge of Jesus through the outdoors for the last seven years. I also enjoy serving in various ways overseas, primarily in South and Southeast Asia.
Favorite Scripture verse (and why):
Philippians 2:1-11 and Psalm 97:1-6. I like these passages because I think they fully portray a few of the many characteristics of god that I am actively trying to imitate in my life and that show the irrefutable power of God.
What does Climbing For Christ mean to you?
Combining two passions of mine: Christ and climbing. What could be better? It is a great ministry for the body of believers to meet other climbers, get involved in missions, and stay connected to what God is doing through the outdoors.
