We have been training hard to take on the challenging 42.3 mile 24th annual Chuck Wilson Memorial Backpack for BENCHMARK! While few can hike in person, your tax-deductible sponsorship will allow hikers to share this amazing experience with you, and support the mission of BENCHMARK at the same time!

The mission of BENCHMARK Adventure Ministries is
to stimulate significant life change toward wholeness in Christ
through interactive experiences and outdoor adventures.

We all live in a world of relational brokenness, disconnection and loss. Some live in this world without much hope. In the United States Military there are strategically placed, Christ-following Chaplains who are available to offer hope and point toward grace.

BENCHMARK comes along side those Chaplains and the Soldiers they serve by creating adventure events for relational connection and personal reflection to move them toward wholeness in Christ.

In 2017, we served 326 Soldiers and their children from Infantry, Aviation and Special Operation units of Fort Campbell, TN, Fort Benning, GA, Hunter Army Airfield, GA, and Fort Bragg, NC. [Read More]

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]
