A Voice In The Wilderness...

Canyon Ministries 1997 Logo Dark Square with Map

In 2024, we celebrate 27 years of Grand Canyon ministry!  As a voice in the wilderness, we’ve seen God’s amazing blessings on the ministry and its effect on the people to whom we minister.  Last year alone, we served over 3,500 people on various creation tours, adventures, and events!  As we continue to serve thousands of people at the Grand Canyon National Park, we remain a witness to those who have never heard the gospel and the redemptive message of the Grand Canyon.

For years, we have used your generous giving to support programs such as our Christian Leader’s Trip (CLT), that has enabled leaders from Christian seminaries, universities, and denominations to experience the impact of a Grand Canyon river trip from a biblical creation view.  After 15 years of running that program, we feel God has called us to expand the heart and vision of that outreach.

As we embark on the next chapter of our journey at the Grand Canyon and throughout the Southwest, we are thrilled to introduce our latest IMPACT initiative.

Expanding our Impact

Hear Nate share the vision of expansion in our scholarship outreach program and creating wider IMPACT in the Christian community.

Expanding our Impact and Engagement

IMPACT is not just a program, it’s a commitment to creating a ripple effect that transforms people’s lives through their encounters with God in His creation. As a voice in the wilderness, our desire is that the name of Jesus echoes from the canyon’s walls into the four corners of the earth, and are strategically working to develop new programs of reach into the world.

These outreach and education initiatives require the prayer and financial support from our family of Canyon Ministries supporters.  We invite you to be a part of this development by supporting Canyon Ministries as we work to IMPACT key areas:

1. Equipping Christian Leaders

IMPACT aims to continue our heart in training and equipping Christian leaders for ministry work. While this will look different than our typical CLT scholarshipped river trip, your support provides the needed resources and training programs we’re developing with the goal to to empower leaders to effectively serve our churches, schools, and communities.

2. Empowering Young Minds

We’re passionate about nurturing the next generation. IMPACT outreach and education programs will offer training and support for young adults, especially those entering Christian universities and those with an interest in creation science—ensuring a strong foundation for their journey through school and their walk with Christ.

3. Blessing our Pastors and Missionaries

Understanding the challenges faced by pastors and missionaries, and acknowledging the many personal and family sacrifices they often make in the work of the ministry, our IMPACT funds provides scholarships for them to join our tours, offering a unique opportunity for refreshing, spiritual enrichment, and fellowship.

4. Access for All Abilities

Through our partnership with organizations like Luke5Adventures, IMPACT creates funds that opens doors to adventures for those who are wheelchair-bound or handicapped in some way. Your support helps organize inclusive trips, making the wonders of the Grand Canyon accessible to everyone.

Canyon Ministries was founded in 1997 to provide Christ-centered rafting trips through the Grand Canyon.  Over the years, we have partnered with Answers in Genesis, the Institute for Creation Research, Focus on the Family, and several other organizations to provide Grand Canyon tours and research trips.

Since its inception, Canyon Ministries has shared the canyon from a biblical perspective with tens of thousands of guests on river trips, multi-day backpacking trips, and daily rim and hiking tours year-round.

From the beginning, Canyon Ministries has been dedicated to upholding the authority of Scripture from the very first verse and equipping people to defend the gospel, especially with regard to creation and science.

As a voice in the wilderness, we are also a witness to those who have yet to know the saving power of Jesus Christ and who may be seeking answers to life and the world around.  We believe the Lord has put us in a unique position to provide opportunities that can change a person’s worldview and life for eternity.

We invite you to be a part of our ministry and hope you will prayerfully consider joining us in this great work.
