“Before I shaped you in the womb, I knew all about you.
Before you saw the light of day, I had holy plans for you...

- Jeremiah 1:5 MSG

“It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat.”

- Teddy Roosevelt


This is our mission. We orient, teach, and release men to bear God's image as he intended. Simply, we are guides fulfilling the great commission and inviting men to launch into the great Adventure that is life in Christ. We accomplish this through many ways including our NEXT retreat and one-on-one coaching through our Guide Network.

We have witnessed many men launch out into their adventures with God and change the trajectory of their lives as well as their families.


Part of NWA's ministry over the last 20 years has been to encourage and help men launch into their NEXT step and adventure with God. You will join other men as you reorient your self to God’s story and your role in it.

You will join other men as you reorient yourself to God's story and your role in it. You will also have the opportunity to share your story and calling with other men and receive encouragement and insight. When you leave you will have a solid NEXT step to take and an action plan with goals, and a timeline. 


NWA Guides are men who are passionate about helping others discover and fight for the life God intends.  Each Guide has a passion for the outdoors and has completed the necessary training to take men further down the pathway to LIFE
