Brad wanted to go to the nations, but God sent him to the one place he never wanted to be—his hometown. It’s a destination for thousands of international students, refugees and immigrants. And many of them were born and raised in places with little exposure to the gospel.

“My job as a Christian is to simply represent Christ. Often, we find ourselves just responding to their questions about who Jesus is, not trying to push anything on them, also believing that God’s already at work in that relationship.” – Brad

In our new documentary, Brad and a friend lead a group of their international friends into one of the longest slot canyons in the world for a week-long, 50-mile hike. They eat, sleep, climb, laugh and argue, all while hiking through an ice-cold river in a canyon 1,000 feet deep. The goal: to survive, build relationships and seek God together.
