The mission of BENCHMARK Adventure Ministries is
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
