YOUR GIFT WILL HELP REACH EVEN
MORE PEOPLE FOR THE KINGDOM!
The Lord has placed Canyon Ministries on an amazing journey and we see His blessings on the ministry and its effect on the people with whom we minister. The growth of our rim tours has approximately doubled each year over the last 3 years and our river trips are generally filling almost a year in advance.
The river trips inspire over 250 people each year and over 2,000 people enjoy the Grand Canyon from the rim with us each year. The buses are pushed to their limits and the guides work hard to meet the need and serve with excellence. Even with the growth we are experiencing, we maintain a 5-star review rating on Trip Advisor and in just 5 years, have moved to their #3 position for tour activities at Grand Canyon.
To continue this level of excellence, there are a few key things we need:
1). Maintain and grow our bus fleet to provide the level of excellence our guests deserve
2). More qualified guides to bless the global audience we serve at Grand Canyon
3). Continual prayer for the Lord to guide us as we strive to serve with humility and grace
4). While not a “need,” we desire to provide scholarships, beyond the annual Christian Leaders Trip, for pastors and teachers who may not be able to afford the tour

WHY CANYON MINISTRIES NEEDS YOUR SUPPORT
From the beginning, Canyon Ministries has been dedicated to upholding the authority of Scripture from the very first verse and presenting the evidence seen in the Grand Canyon, which supports a young earth. (See our Statement of Faith.)
Canyon Ministries was founded in 1997 to provide Christ-centered rafting trips through the Grand Canyon. We have been selected by Answers in Genesis, The Institute for Creation Research, and Focus on the Family, as well as several other organizations, to provide their Grand Canyon tours and research trips. Since its inception, Canyon Ministries has shared the canyon from a Biblical perspective with thousands of guests on river trips ranging from 4 to 9 days in length and rim tours offered 6 days a week year-round.
We invite you to be a part of our ministry and hope you will prayerfully consider joining us in this endeavor. Our greatest need is prayer and we covet your prayers for Canyon Ministries as we continue to minister to His people, equipping them to defend the gospel especially with regard to creation science, and witness to those who need to see the truth of His Word. We believe the Lord has put us in a unique position to provide opportunities that can change a person’s worldview and their life for eternity.
We also invite you to be a part of our ministry through your financial support. In 2006, Canyon Ministries established a non-profit arm to accept corporate and personal donations to support us in our work through tax-deductible donations.*
You may make a secure online donation online with one of the links above, or you can also donate via PayPal by clicking here. Canyon Ministries can also accept stock donations; please contact us for details.
Donations to the general fund provide resources necessary to effectively minister to those the Lord brings to us. It can be anything from tires for the bus, insurance, office supplies, or Internet services. And yes, it helps those who work for Canyon Ministries put food on the table.
Since becoming a non-profit organization, the scholarship fund has provided scholarships for many who are in full-time ministry and would not be able to afford an opportunity to experience the Grand Canyon on their own. Scholarship recipients have been Sr. Pastors, Youth Pastors, ministry leaders, Christian school teachers, and others who have an influence on the Body of Christ.
As an out-growth of the scholarship fund, in 2008 we offered the first Christian Leaders Trip, where we scholarship an entire trip for influential Christian Leaders. Each year since, we have sent 23 men on a “by invitation only” 8-day trip through the canyon with a teaching staff of 4 men, all of whom have over 20 years experience teaching in the area of Biblical creation.
