Mark Folk


Mark Folk is the founder of New Wilderness Adventures. New Wilderness Adventures began out of his calling and passion to inspire men toward a lifestyle of ongoing transformational intimacy with Christ, so that they might fulfill — both in life and personal ministry — all that God intends for them as his image bearers.

Colorado Director

I’m not a man who use to be like you, tolerate men like you or fix men like you.  I am a man just like you!  I have walked through pain, loss, disappointment, and confusion.  I have come to learn that God is good!  I have 6 awesome children, 3 men and 3 women and one step son.  I got married to Ruby in March of 2020.  Most men today are lost or confused, and have a lot of questions.  We have not been given a clear and compelling vision of manhood.  My passion is to lead men to their true Father, where they will find meaning and purpose, and will fulfill their destiny as sons of the Father.  I believe deeply in the mission of Jesus (Luke 4:18) and, thus NWA, to rescue, restore, and release hearts, one man at a time!

It is my goal to use the excitement and attraction of outdoor adventure to create environments where the Holy Spirit can work in the lives of men. It is as these times we can share with him the excitement and adventure contained in the gospel message.

It is my hearts desire to see men redeemed , healed, set free, discipled, equipped, empowered and serving in the Kingdom. To experience adventure while discovering His amazing creation. To build community and share as we journey together  .
It was for freedom that Christ set us free; therefore keep standing firm and do not be subject again to the yoke of slavery.    Gal 5
