It can be tricky to plan out your life and figure out where you want to be a year from now. Especially considering our hopes and dreams tend to change a lot as the year quickly evolves.

“Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is commendable, if there is any excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things.” – Phillippians 4:8
There are plenty of tips and tricks out on the web to be a better leader, but to become a true disciple of Christ, it is imperative to open yourself to the goodness of God’s world. In His creation, God has transformed lives through the wilderness. As shown in the Bible, God took Noah, Moses, Elijah and Jesus through 40 day natural excursions to truly allow them to build their trust in Him. Through these wilderness adventures, these men have become the most influential leaders by following the Lord and, in turn, learning foundational qualities of great leaders of Christ. Through Wilderness ministry leadership and discipleship courses, you can strengthen your leading discipleship in every part of your life.
“And he gave the apostles, the prophets, the evangelists, the shepherds and teachers, to equip the saints for the work of ministry, for building up the body of Christ, until we all attain to the unity of the faith and of the knowledge of the Son of God, to mature manhood, to the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ, so that we may no longer be children, tossed to and fro by the waves and carried about by every wind of doctrine, by human cunning, by craftiness in deceitful schemes. Rather, speaking the truth in love, we are to grow up in every way into him who is the head, into Christ.” – Ephesians 4:11-16
“God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble. Therefore we will not fear, though the earth give way and the mountains fall into the heart of the sea, though its waters roar and foam and the mountains quake with their surging.” (Psalm 46:1-3)
TAG – Time Alone With God. This is a daily spiritual discipline we practice on all of SROM’s courses. During our Christ centered courses, we make God the center of our day. While we can build solid relationships with our peers and experience new and exciting or hard things, it is so important to take a pause to reflect and process where you currently are. Every day on your course you will have time to reflect alone with God. Just like any healthy human relationship, intentional time together is essential to a healthy deepening of any right and cultivating relationship.
The Lord calls us to share His Good News. The Good News is the teachings of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit, coming together as one to enrich the lives of us here on earth. The experiences we encounter on a SROM course can teach us to let go and let God enter our lives while experiencing the beauty of and overcoming the challenges while on course. We bring God glory through divine human encounter in the wilderness because we are making disciples for Christ. But what happens after you have stepped off the mountain top and back onto concrete?
The process of transformation is a basic tenet of Christianity. When we become Christians we commit to turn from our old lives of sin and the pursuits of man and turn towards the grace and mercy of God, choosing to live a more spiritually-renewed life. These transformations require followers of Christ to throw off their earthly robes of comfort and ease and turn towards righteousness for the promised glory of eternal life. Hence the belief in being “Born Again” through the blood and sacrifice of our savior, Christ Jesus.
Romans 12:2 states: “And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, so that you may prove what the will of God is, that which is good and acceptable and perfect.” (more…)
