EXPERIENCE THE GRAND CANYON FROM RIVER TO RIM!

Grand Canyon Christian Rim Tours and River Trips

It’s never been easier to see one of the 7 natural wonders of the world! Take a short drive from Phoenix or Las Vegas and you can witness one of the most incredible sites in the world. The Grand Canyon is one of the most amazing features on the planet, descending over a mile into the earth and as much as 18 miles in width. Featuring life-changing Grand Canyon rim tours and river trips with a Biblical Christian perspective! We offer half and full-day tours from the South Rim as well as 4 to 9-day rafting trips that will encourage your faith as we reveal the truth of God’s creation found in this gigantic remnant of the Biblical Flood. Check out our quick trip guides for more information and how you can experience this incredible adventure. Your life will never be the same!

Come see the spectacular South Rim of the Grand Canyon with us!

Operating under the name A Different View Tours, Canyon Ministries provides land-based rim tours of the Grand Canyon along its South Rim. We find many Christians simply do not want to go to the rim and hear the evolutionary explanation of the canyon’s formation. A tour with Canyon Ministries will provide you with a succinct presentation on the geology of the canyon and the testimony it provides for a global flood and a young earth. Go to Rim Tours for more information and to register.

World-Class Adventure!

Canyon Ministries’ guides provide you with a Biblical perspective of the Grand Canyon on this “adventure of a lifetime!” On all trips, we spend time daily understanding how the canyon supports the Word of God. Teachings throughout the trip include: the creationist’s model of the earth’s origin, interpretation of the canyon’s formation and its geology, human history, and ecology. This is done in a loving Christian environment which provides a safe, educational, and comfortable family setting.

Biblically-Based Books and Guides!

Grand Canyon, a Different View created an international controversy in 2004 when a move was made to ban it from the National Park’s bookstores.  (See book controversy for more information.) It was sold in the park bookstores for 10 years, and although it was the only book sold in the park that presents a Biblical alternative for the formation of the Grand Canyon, it was removed in 2014.
