Columbia is the only place where you can combine this level of outdoor training and qualification with a top notch professional ministry preparation program.
At Columbia we are serious about equipping our students to make a positive difference in an increasingly chaotic world. Whether it is providing relief aid in the wake of a disaster or conflict, helping remote people groups raise food and acquire clean drinking water, or escorting medical teams safely to some of the most remote people groups on the planet, Columbia’s Outdoor Leadership students are prepared.
At Columbia we are equally dedicated to equipping our students with the soft skills necessary for work with people. Whether it is managing a sea kayaking program for youth at a summer camp, facilitating a rock climbing program for a church program or leading people on extended wilderness adventures, Columbia’s Outdoor Leadership students are ready to introduce people to the creator through nature and adventure.
Upon Graduation our students are successfully entering full-time positions in Christian Camping, Church Ministry and Para-Church organizations.
