In 2013, SROM celebrated 30 years of life-transforming ministry! It is a milestone that points to the grace and goodness of God. Instead of releasing our usual course catalog, we have worked hard to create a timeless piece that both celebrates our heritage and looks forward to the future. This publication speaks to the fundamental importance of wilderness ministry by addressing the profound needs in our society and culture. As such, the articles are not about individual courses, but, rather, a theological and philosophical justification for wilderness ministry to illuminate the value and impact of SROM’s ministry.
