Prepare the Way Grand Canyon Ministries

Over the past 21 years the Lord has placed Canyon Ministries on an amazing journey. As a voice for Him in the wilderness, we see His blessings on the ministry, and its effect on the people to whom we minister.  We need YOUR help to not only continue this great work, but also to reach many more people who have never heard this voice.

Our tours have grown exponentially.  As we continue to serve over 2,000 people every year along the rim of the Grand Canyon National Park, we remain a witness to those who have never heard the gospel or the redemptive message of the Grand Canyon. 

Down on the Colorado River below, we provide over 250 guests each year with the Christ-centered experience of a lifetime through the Grand Canyon.  Our river trips are generally filling almost a year in advance with amazing people from around the world. 

Our guides work diligently to proclaim the message of the Gospel, and to equip fellow believers with the truth of God’s Word in a place where science and scripture come together.  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 one of their top positions for outdoor activities at the Grand Canyon.

To continue this level of excellence, there are a few key things we need:

  • 1. To maintain and grow our bus fleet to provide the level of excellence our guests deserve

  • 2. To train more qualified guides to bless the global audience we serve at Grand Canyon

  • 3. To  receive continual prayer for the Lord to guide us as we strive to serve with humility and grace

  • 4.  While not a “need,” we also desire to provide scholarships, beyond the annual Christian Leaders Trip, for pastors and teachers who may not be able to afford a rim tours and river trip

To support the ministry with a traditional monetary donation,
click on the “Support” button on the top right. 

For a more strategic approach, click on the “Planned Giving” button. While we are not in a position to provide financial or tax advice, we present some basic information on options you may find helpful.

Your generous donation will help us meet our needs as we continue to grow and serve!


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. For more information on the Christian Leaders Trip, click here.
