From zero to hero all in one go.
Ready to level-up your skills and dive deep into becoming a wilderness leader?
Want to go deep with God and see how wilderness ministry can change a life?
If so, the Wilderness Leadership Minor could be for you! This minor is an intensive summer semester that packages all the key courses you need to become a wilderness leader and a wilderness ministry professional. It will be an extended time in deep wilderness settings with a vibrant, authentic community – creating bonds that are deep and true.
As a team you will begin with following in the footsteps of Jesus and spend 40 Days and 40 Nights in the wilderness. Next you will take a pause to rest and reflect as you prepare for the Wilderness Ministry Professional Course. The WMPC begins with an online webinar series to take you deeper into emotional intelligence, self-awareness, and your identity. By late spring you will head out into the Grand Canyon to focus on growing as a leader being equipped as a professional wilderness guide. And finally, completing your hard skills arsenal, you will take Rock Instructor I and gain the skills and expertise to safely lead groups rock climbing and rappelling. It won’t be easy but it will be worth it. Are you ready?

Questions About Covid-19
What if SROM has to cancel the course?
You will receive a full refund if we need to cancel the course.
Should I get travel insurance?
Yes, we highly recommend getting travel insurance and checking to see if it covers Covid-19 or not.
Not only is travel insurance helpful for a potential change in plans or a course closure, some travel insurance plans will also cover if you needed to be evacuated from a course for a medical emergency.
