Called to be an Outfitter

A few years ago I realized two formative truths: The Army did a better job of teaching me what it meant to be a “real helicopter pilot” than the church did teaching me what it means to be a Christian; and, The Great Commission is about making disciples, not “praying a prayer.” An outfitter supplies the needed equipment and experience to help the outdoorsman complete his hunt. He knows the terrain and the challenges. A good outfitter is in the business because he loves the outdoors. He enjoys sharing the journey with clients new to the region. Having been an outfitter in Alaska and a pastor, it is only natural to focus on OutfittingDisciples.

  1. Sounds like you have an interesting ministry. There are a lot of people who are getting out of the building and taking the Word to the people and showing them who Jesus is.

    Glad to see someone else who realizes the Great Commission is about building up disciples.

    Looking forward to reading your blog and seeing what kind of ‘equipment and experiences’ you can help us all with.
