If you have a heart for Jesus, a desire to impact the world, and a little “Indiana Jones” blood then you have come to the right place.
What is Stranded:
Stranded is the “Basic Training” of Unusual Soldiers and there is nothing else like it on the planet. It is a simulated mission trip to a “dark, dangerous, and despised” region full of tribesmen, wild animals, and rebels. You will go through multiple scenarios and training sessions from instructors (missionaries, wilderness guides, and a special ops instructor). As you journey to reach a remote tribe you will learn what it means to be an Unusual Soldier, how to develop a basic missions strategy, and gain tips on how to overcome hostile environments. During this quest you will be given a training manual, a top rated survival knife, a book on missions, and a memory to last a lifetime. Make no mistake Stranded will not be easy, but by the end you will grow in courage and go home empowered.
What Stranded is not:
Stranded is not a summer camp, a camping trip, or a been"been-there-done-that" event. It’s a launching pad.
The Ultimate goal of Stranded:
The ultimate goal of Stranded is to launch people like you into areas of the world that are in desperate need of hope. Many students have discovered their personal callings at Stranded and have left with a new found confidence that God can use them. Don't be surprised if you are one of the many students that takes it to the next level and embarks on a a journey to bring light to a dark, dangerous, or a despised place within a year following Stranded.
It’s tough...it’s stretching...it’s empowering!
