Listeners will be moved to consider evangelistic outdoor outreach events on this week’s The Trail To Adventure! It’s a visit to a Pennsylvania church and this program’s guest interview is with Pastor Neal Wintermute. The two men’s discussion is about the church’s mission and how their game dinner is seeing men come to Christ each year. Pastor Wintermute shares with Gerry the different things that the church has tried and is doing in relation to this annual outdoor outreach. One thing is for sure, they are well aware of the fact that everything they do throughout the year, including the game dinner, needs to be bathed in prayer from the day of planning to completion. Getting to know about the different ideas God’s Great Outdoors shares on the “How to” of outdoor outreach events has help them on their way.

On this Trail To Adventure! this week, Gerry interviews one of the outdoor sports world’s legends at the ATA show in Columbus, Ohio. Pro fisherman and television host, Jimmy Houston, shares about his old friends from the early days of tournament fishing when the sport was just getting started, and how they have remained close friends. Jimmy also talks about relationships, and the ability for him to be able to share truths from the Bible with people he encounters because of his position in the outdoor industry. He gives away a Bible each year that he has personally used during the twelve months of Bible study and reading entirely through the Bible, which he has done for over 40 years. His challenge to the listeners is to be in God’s Word each and every day!

As Gerry visits with this week’s guest Keith Cline the two men are at the Rushing Wind Retreat Center in Ontario, Canada during a couple’s marriage event. Keith tells how as a rural mail carrier in north central Nebraska, he listens to God’s Great Outdoors while running his route. Hearing of the couples fishing retreats, he asked his wife Lori if she’d want to go “up there” for their 35th wedding anniversary. “Yes!” was her answer and booking, they landed the honeymoon cabin “to boot!” Keith also shares about the Special Youth Challenge deer & spring turkey hunts he is a part of in Nebraska and takes place in other locations across the nation. Put on for disabled and terminally ill youngsters, the ministry is seeing youth and adults come to Jesus Christ. Plus, Keith relates on the Select Arrow Ministry that allows him to speak across the country on Isaiah 49:2, “…he made me into a polished arrow…” and how God shapes us all.

On this Trail To Adventure! Gerry’s in Petersburg, KY and connected with this week’s guest Robert Smith. Robert’s story is about being blessed by God on an all-day whitetail deer hunt where only a half hour before dark he shot a monster buck. No ordinary deer, this typical ten pointer harvested on November 11th of 2000 with his rifle in northern Kentucky became a new state record buck. Robert, realizing that the Creator is truly the “Lord of the harvest” was thankful for this animal. Being what he calls “a meat hunter” when it came to the antlers value, it wasn’t a big deal. When an antler collector offered to buy the set, Robert knew the money could be used for an upcoming mission’s trip his church youth group was taking to Jamaica. Selling them was giving back to God, resulting in salvations abroad!

On this Trail To Adventure! this week’s interview takes place during a Fisher’s of Men Retreat at Rushing Wind Retreat Center in Ontario, Canada. The guest Jeff Swan reveals how skeptical he was the first year attending, as his church group had labeled the event a “mission’s trip”. He thought “Yeah, it’s really all about fishing, I’m sure!” But, did he discover how wrong he was and how God spoke to both he and his wife, the first year they attended. This is an outreach that is changing lives for eternity and listeners may consider this as something for those in their lives too! Jeff also reflects the importance of being the kind of man or women that God wants us to be.

On this Trail To Adventure! Gerry visits with and interviews Ron Vining from Polestar Outdoors as the two connected in Nebraska. This is a ministry that takes young people on hunting and fishing trips in lieu of their parents, who have no idea how to do outdoor activities or are not in their lives, yet the kids, want to get started. This outreach was started in Powell, Wyoming where Ron lives, but has expanded to other areas in the USA and is making a difference in the lives of these young people, as the program is set up to present the Gospel. Also, the ministry will include the parents if they want to take part and learn how to do these activities, so one day they can join their children on the adventures.

It has become a Christmas tradition in the upper part of Michigan before you get to the Mackinaw Bridge, to hear commercials from Jay’s Sporting Goods that are bringing people to tears and having them contact this outdoor-related business. This week’s interview is with co-owner Jeff Poet and store manager Mark Copeland as they share about these radio spots that have absolutely nothing to do with selling products. What they are all about is, combating the political correctness of wishing folks a “Happy Holiday” and sharing how Christmas is about the baby Jesus who was born in a manger 2000 years ago and has changed countless millions of lives.

Gerry is visiting with Dr. Richard Swenson in Wisconsin and the two are talking about Intelligent Design on this week’s Trail To Adventure! The truth is there is more chance mathematically that your car happened by accident over hundreds of millions of years, then just your eyeballs having evolved and how they works with your entire body? This is just one of the things that Dr. Richard Swenson shares in the interview with Gerry as they discuss this topic and Dr. Swenson’s book, “More Than Meets the Eye”. Having taught surgery at the University of Madison, Wisconsin, and having minored in physics, this interview is jam-packed with information that declares that we have a Creator God.
