ADV 534 - Outdoor Ministry: Planning & Implementation

ADV 534 details the planning and implementation process for outdoor adventure ministries. It covers the application process for participants, insurance needs, specific planning items for camping, first-aid issues, and a variety of outdoor events. It covers appropriate ‘theological/spiritual’ curriculum planning for specific types of outdoor events, with specific objectives in mind, and how to evaluate the results and effectiveness of these ministries. The course covers what to expect in the wilderness, how to prepare for the ‘unexpected’, and, the actual implementation of an outdoor ministry event. (Students must be physically able to endure varying kinds of weather, terrain and exposure. Students unable to engage in extended outdoor activities will be provided with alternate opportunities to fulfill the course requirements.)
