​Great Smoky Mountains National Park

These southern Appalachian Mountains are among the oldest mountains in the world and invite you to a slower pace of life: one filled with layers upon layers of hills, thick green forests, open meadows, towering trees, winding trails, and rocky cliffs.

Fireflies

One incredible experience my team was blessed to have was witnessing the synchronized fireflies early in the summer.

Noticing God

Before this summer, when I would be out hiking, playing sports, or just enjoying nature, I would never notice God in creation.

Tightly Bonded

The Lord revealed to me the meaning and necessity of discipleship and accountability.

Saying Yes

The best thing about this summer for me was getting to serve at Mt. LeConte with the crew.

Experience the Church

I learned more of what it looks like to minister in a secular environment while trying to challenge people’s broken picture of Christianity in the world.
