The mountains are calling and I must go – John Muir
Every summer during my childhood, I spent weeks and weeks on end in the Rocky Mountains camping, hiking, exploring and learning from God through His creation. It was also a time where my Dad instilled biblical manhood in me as we trekked across pristine tundra and steep mountain trails. For a boy and later as a young man, there was no greater classroom.
In 2004, that experience was shared with 15 men from the Omaha area connected with King of Kings Church. Since that time, God has used the Peak Challenge experience to reach more than 3,000 men and their families, impacting their lives forever.
2023 is our 18th Anniversary. We are humbled and thankful for the legacy that God has imparted to so many men, their families and their communities. Just as John Muir noted about the draw of the mountains, we too understand that God is calling men and we must go.
Peak Challenge is an annual opportunity for men, their sons, fathers, brothers and friends to get away from the everyday routines in life and to experience all that God has for them in a wild setting – the mountains of Colorado. This is not a “retreat” but rather an advance of men who seek to experience God in a way that will resonate deep within their souls. Peak Challenge takes place in late July or early August in Colorado and men from around the country are part of the experience. Men are challenged physically while in Colorado hiking 14,000 foot peaks, biking and whitewater rafting. But more importantly, men are challenged spiritually to engage in the battle like never before, as they will see what is at stake.
We are a regional network, community and ministry of men in the Midwest – a Band of Brothers – that are committed to challenge and raise up men to be warriors for Christ… for their families… as single men… in their workplaces… and in their “community” with others in this world. Men need other men to stand strong and lead courageously and reject passivity, to be physically, mentally and spiritually trained to engage this world with the power of Jesus Christ.We seek transformation of the heartand a true commitment to Matthew 22:36-38. We desire to build and disciple men to lead others down that road. Those are Biblical values. Those are our values. Connect with us on Facebook.
