About Us
Mission: 

The Mission of Climbers for Christ is to encourage, equip and empower climbers to share the love of Christ with the climbing community.

Programs: 

We believe that the best way to reach climbers is through relationships. This is why we are primarily organized by local chapters of like-minded climbers. Our Chapter Coordinators champion the building of authentic communities where climbers can be themselves. They are intentional about creating an atmosphere conducive to conversations and experiences related to climbing AND Jesus.

Why Work For Us?: 

As climbers, we are part of a distinct people group who enjoy challenging ourselves on the rocks and in the mountains, and we naturally develop strong connections with one another through shared experiences. [Matt. 28:19-20]

We believe that the good news of the gospel offers hope for all people, and it connects us to the amazing God of the universe in a personal way. [John 3:16]

The most effective way that we can share the reason for the hope we have is by intentionally developing meaningful and supportive relationships, where we honor and serve others. [1 Thess. 2:8]

Because we have experienced the unconditional love of Christ, we are compelled to share it. [2 Cor. 5:14]
