Thanks to your support, hundreds of lives have been influenced in 2018 with a three-year record high of total event participants and total volunteers.

Through our Chaplain’s Partnership Initiative, Soldier and Son-connecting adventures were implemented and Chaplains were encouraged. Because of your generosity, BENCHMARK was able to provide a special resilience-themed Thanksgiving meal for 255 Soldiers and Family members. Your sponsorship of six hikers on our 24th annual Chuck Wilson Memorial Backpack for BENCHMARK graciously exceeded our donation goal.

We are humbled by and grateful for you and blessed by God’s provision. BENCHMARK works hard to fulfill our mission to stimulate significant life change toward wholeness in Christ through interactive experiences and outdoor adventures.

“I’ve conducted two events with James and staff from BENCHMARK Adventure Ministries and their experience, clear presentation and care for Soldiers have made an indelible impact.

I have heard nothing but high praise from our attendees.

What makes BENCHMARK so extraordinary is their ability to come alongside and serve the Unit Ministry Team through the whole event to free up our time and alleviate any concerns so that we can effectively do one thing…minister to Soldiers.”

– Chaplain, Hunter Army Airfield, Savannah, GA

Whether in the wilderness or in the city, a benchmark is a known point, a permanent point of reference, which can help us better understand exactly where we are, almost anywhere in the world.

BENCHMARK designs interactive adventures to help individuals assess their horizontal relationship with other people, their surroundings and Creation, and their vertical relationship with God.  The small mark in the middle of the triangle symbolizes the high value of a Christ centered, Biblical worldview and how that emphasis affects the whole person. [Read More]
