At HigherTrek, we believe all young men are lovable, valuable, and capable assets in the Kingdom of God. We’re pretty much obsessed with helping them become the men God created them to be. Since spiritual maturity can’t be achieved without emotional health, our approach to discipleship begins with the culture we create: where everything is confidential and guys who come to our experiences rarely know each other when they apply. Our small group discipleship model blends adventure and fun with a curriculum that addresses the challenges young men face as they transition into adulthood.
We’re a non-denominational ministry for young men (ages 18-25). The most visible aspect of our ministry is the twelve-day adventure discipleship experiences we host. What is less seen is the months of preparation we walk guys through before they arrive at HigherTrek, and the follow-up we facilitate after; launching them back into their local churches, pairing them with mentors, and offering shorter alumni programs annually. Our focus has always been and will always be helping young men own and grow their faith.
In 2003 Chuck Wenger noticed that the sons of friends he’d made in business and ministry were of similar age and asking him similar questions about their faith.
He saw an opportunity.
