ADV 531 - Introduction to Wilderness Adventure

3 credits

ADV 531 introduces the student to the fundamental nature of “wilderness” ministry, as grounded in a basic theology of adventure. It defines “adventure,” then touches on the biblical, theological and anthropological backgrounds for wilderness ministry. It investigates the human understanding of adventure, and why humans actually need adventure. Finally, the course discusses the physical issues of wilderness ministry, and how a renewed theology of adventure can influence mind and body. This course involves practical activities and modeling in the outdoor classroom.
