God's Great Outdoors - Dr. Tom Rakow

November 27, 2017

On this Trail To Adventure! Dr. Tom Rakow, the founder of The Christian Deer Hunters Association and Gerry visit together discussing the numerous outdoor ministries that have come about over the years. The idea is to provide Christians looking to reach others who enjoy time in God's creation with the tools to aid in the ability to help win them to receive Jesus Christ as their Creator God. Tom shares about how The Christian Deer Hunters Association got started and how he never expected it to be what it is today. Tom also tells how he began writing books, and today despite the fact that he flunked English several times in school, with his family’s aid he has written a number of books that are helping Christians reach out to their unsaved friends and relatives with true stories on fishing and hunting.

On this week's Trail To Adventure! program, Dale Karch, the owner of 3 Rivers Archery, a traditional archery supply company located in Ashley, Indiana, shares with Gerry about how he, his wife Sandy and the family came about buying the business. Dale started building bows in his garage to sell in their home state of Wisconsin, and as time went on they added a number of other archery products to help those that were into shooting the simple stick and string type bows enjoyed by traditional archers. Discovering that 3 Rivers Archery was for sale, Dale and his wife looked at how they could acquire this business and make it something that the entire family could get involved in, and with God’s direction they accomplished this goal. It is now a family affair that’s grown their relationships and is making memories for today and for all eternity.

This week’s guest on the Trail To Adventure! radio broadcast is Erland Brager. Gerry is with him, as he’s traveled from Ohio to Hudson, Wisconsin, because he is the keynote speaker for a game dinner put on by a group of St. Croix River sportsmen. Even though the location for the event is at Faith Community Church in Hudson, this evangelistic outreach has seven churches from the surrounding area that join together annually to make it happen. Erland tells how the event got started and evolved simply because of a tour at Mathews Bow Factory by a group of men and their meeting of Matt McPherson. One man on that trip made a life changing decision in his walk with Jesus Christ and the other men could see how outdoor outreach ministry can work!

On this week's Trail to Adventure! Gerry is with a guest, who on being asked to help a woman load a road kill deer into the trunk of her car so that she could feed her hungry family, had an incredible and moving impact on him. Rick Wilson was that man and visits with the listeners to tell the story on this God’s Great Outdoors broadcast production. Challenged by this event, Rick felt God was calling him to in some way help people who were struggling with hunger issues when it comes to meat and was led to start the ministry Farmers and Hunters Feeding the Hungry. From this little incident and the beginning of this ministry in the Hagerstown, MD area, FHFH has expanded across the nation, seeing numerous people fed by deer harvested by hunters in the fall each year.

This week’s Trail To Adventure! has Ex-Philadelphia Eagles football player, Rich Garza, is the guest visiting with Gerry. He’s in the middle of a speaking blitz to middle and high school students, as well as detention center inmates in Gerry’s home area of Ohio. Rich is just one of the pros from Sports World, a ministry that gets into school systems, where the Sports World Pro’s share their testimonies with those who attend. Rich talks about the fact that his life-long dream of becoming a pro football player, having been accomplished, revealed that it could not satisfy the God-shaped hole we all have and try to fill with something else. In his case, it included drugs and alcohol until he finally gave his life to Jesus Christ.

On this The Trail To Adventure! Gerry’s guest is the founder of Christian Bowhunters of America, David Roose. The two are together near the home office of God’s Great Outdoors in Ohio, talking about how archery and one's love of bow hunting can be used to exalt Jesus Christ as Creator, Lord, and Savior. Dave was a tent making pastor and while working on a construction job, near his Cadillac, Michigan home, God began to give him ideas about the CBA ministry. The fact is, over the course of that day in the early 1980’s, the Lord laid out the concept for the ministry as Dave jotted down the ideas that came to him as he worked. And the ministry came to be, just as God shared for this evangelistic ministry.
