The North Face of God 1/19/2009 9:51:16 PM   (Total replies: 2)
The Western New York, Minnesota, and Front Range chapters are all using Ken Gire's The North Face of God as a study. Study participants are invited to use this thread to post their thoughts as they read through this book. That way all three chapters can do the study together from different locations. Other Climbing For Christ members are, likewise, invited to join in. Read on.

Re: Please define the ministries of Climbing for Christ 8/26/2007 2:20:07 PM   (Total replies: 0)
Matt: Thanks for asking ... and welcome (again) to His ministry of Climbing For Christ. Basically, we're a missions-based ministry. But we established the Four Pillars, which consist of Evangelic Expeditions, Partners In Climb, Summit Stewards, and Family Ministry. Each pillar has its specific purpose/goal. Partners In Climb is outreach among our climbing partners and those whom we encounter when we are climbing. Summit Stewards is about "Creation Care." We are called to be stewards of His ...

Re: Looking for input into new/different forum topic headings 11/14/2005 7:40:02 PM   (Total replies: 2)
Chapter News has its own silo on the main site. There are pages for all the chapters. News should be filtered through there. Chapter coordinators work with us in planning events, which are then sent out via e-newsletters and posted on the site. There is also a Calendar, which gets little use, but can be expanded on.

The same thing goes for Trip Reports. We encourage climbers to email their yarns to us to be posted on the site. We want to establish consistency in where news and ...

No, that would be Algonquin Peak - the second-highest mountain in the Adirondacks and New York State.

Anyone looking for international maps should visit the University of Texas library Web site: http://www.lib.utexas.edu/maps/

Re: Some Want It Tough 8/14/2005 9:38:21 PM   (Total replies: 0)
Like Todd, I also found a copy of "Some Want It Tough" and read it. It is a must-read for anyone in the missions field, and especially Climbing For Christ missionaries. Moules went through incredible things as one of the early missionaries in the Himalaya to serve our Lord. It is inspiring!

Adirondack firetower hike for young children 6/8/2004 1:48:29 PM   (Total replies: 0)
On May 1st, 2003 our young family climbed Mt. Arab near Tupper Lake, NY in celebration of Galen's 5th birthday. It was a wonderful hike of 1 mile to the summit. It took us 45min. to reach the firetower which was in terrific shape, thanks to the efforts of a group of people dedicated to refurbishing it. The trail was in excellent condition, and a group of Americorps students were continuing to work on it. The ascent up was gradual, with no real steep sections to negotiate. There is a green state ...
