Mission Statement


Our mission is to use outdoor recreation as a vehicle for reaching students with a clear presentation of the Gospel of Christ, and to create a unique forum for teaching and discipleship. Our goal is to help students develop a healthy relationship with God. This will enable them, in turn, to develop meaningful, healthy, real relationships with their families and their peers. Our ministry is to those who attend camp, to our local churches and community, to those beyond our borders, and to the “uttermost parts of the earth;” to share with them the message of salvation in Christ and to exemplify His message through our lives.

Description


SWO is a high-adventure, Christian wilderness camp that combines intense sports and extreme outdoor recreation with relevant Biblical teaching and worship. Snowbird Missions Outreach is just one spoke of the wheel that represents Snowbird. Through our Missions Camp, Snowbird offers opportunities for churches to bring missions teams to the Andrews area in the same type of format offered by World Changers. Past teams have replaced a porch, painted houses, put on a tin roof, worked new construction, stacked wood, done yard word, cleaned a homeless shelter, built closets for local Cherokee Indians, and much, much more. As a break from their hard work and ministry, teams have the opportunity to revive themselves by participating in some of our extreme recreational activities, meals, and worship services. Snowbird also offers an Outdoor Leadership School (OLDS) and ten weeks of summer camp, in addition to year-'round retreat opportunities. For more detailed opportunities, check out our website at www.swoutfitters.com.

Organizational Statement of Faith


A. The Bible is the Word of God, written by men divinely inspired of God, and is a perfect treasure of Heavenly instruction. B. God eternally exists in three persons: The Father, The Son, and the Holy Spirit. C. Man, created in a state of holiness under God, fell into the bondage of sin through the temptation by Satan. D. Salvation of sinners (which we all are) is wholly by grace through the atonement of our sins by Jesus Christ, who by the Holy Spirit was born of the Virgin Mary and took upon Himself our nature, yet without sin, fully God and fully man. E. The blessings of salvation are made free to all by the Gospel; and upon repentance and faith, all true believers endure to the end by the power of God. F. The Lord Jesus Christ, who was resurrected from the tomb and ascended into Heaven, will visibly and personally return to this earth in power and glory.
