We believe that God can be met both in and outside the classroom

Are you amazed by our extreme God who has created beautiful mountains, majestic waterfalls, roaring waves and deep unexplored cave systems? Do you enjoy expanding your horizons both physically and in your faith? We believe that God made the earth and all the incredible things in it in order that we might know Him more, and so we desire to truly experience and recognize Him as we engage with all He has made (Romans 1:20 NLT). For this reason, our Outdoor Pursuits Stream is built for you who are passionate about encountering God both in and outside of the classroom!


Prepare to be discipled in seeking intimacy with God through worship, intercession and lectures in conjunction with the rest of the training school, but with a twist of adventure on your allocated elective days and weekends. You can look forward to hiking, camping, and swimming in some of the best places in Northland, New Zealand!


Ultimately, we seek to be disciples who are always ready and willing to serve and share the good news of Jesus Christ, so you can also expect to put what you learn in the classroom into practice and reach the outdoors community whenever we can both during the lecture phase and on your cross-cultural outreach.

Info or F.A.Q.


Outdoor Pursuits does a wide range of activities around Northland which allows our students to connect with God in a completely different way than they would in the classroom. Whether it be on a stunning hike, bungee jumping off a bridge, or simply hearing him speak to you through the beauty of nature, we want to help our students connect with God in all sorts of different ways. 

What to Bring

For activities outside the classroom be sure to bring active wear, swimwear, shoes to hike in (whether they be real hiking boots or just runners), a water bottle, and a readiness to try new things!
