The Wilderness Ministry Institute is a part of Nexus International, a 501(c)3 organization. Nexus (To Connect) Vivus (Life) International (Around the world) began as an idea in 2004 with a group of friends who began to informally communicate with one common purpose and dream about reaching out to young people around the world. This dream has grown and developed since then as our staff invests in key indigenous youth leaders in over 60 countries. The staff of the Wilderness Ministry Institute equips and encourages these leaders who are using guided wilderness excursions intentionally to share the Good News of Jesus with unreached youth. Our goal is to see the local Church flourish and to help them develop a culturally appropriate and Biblically sound approach to youth ministry which includes purposeful wilderness experience.
We invite you to watch the video above to see images and hear our leaders share the vision. We also invite you to partner with us financially and through prayer.
