Stranded Training Event


Do you feel like god has called you to more?

are you looking for adventure and a challenge?

Do you want to take action against slavery, human trafficking, racism, poverty, sickness, and hopelessness?

What is Stranded:
Stranded is the “Basic Training” of Unusual Soldiers and there is nothing else like it on the planet. It is a simulated mission trip to a “dark, dangerous, and despised” region full of tribesmen, harsh conditions, and rebels.  You will go through multiple real life scenarios and training sessions from instructors (missionaries, survival experts, military special operations). As you journey to reach a remote tribe, you will listen for God’s calling in your life, develop a basic missions strategy, and gain tips on how to overcome hostile environments. You will receive survival, adventure, missions, special operations, and evangelism training. You will leave with a knowledge of how to share the Gospel with anyone, how to travel safely in dangerous areas, how to survive in harsh environments, and some pretty cool tools to get you started. You will also be connected with a worldwide group of Christians bringing God’s love and hope to some of the hardest places. Make no mistake, Stranded is not easy, but by the end you will grow in courage and go home empowered.

What Stranded is not:
Stranded is not a summer camp, a camping trip, or a retreat. You will be outside your comfort zone.

Who goes to Stranded:
People from ages 17 -56 have attended Stranded. Some want to make an impact around the world, some right in their own backyard. Some are looking for more in life, some are starting a new chapter. Some thought they were too old, too young, too shy, not educated enough, not bold enough, not called to the Great Commission (Matthew 28:16-20) but all leave knowing that with the power of God, that can do all things. (Philippians 4:13)

The Ultimate goal of Stranded:
The ultimate goal of Stranded is to launch people (like you) into areas of the world that are in desperate need of hope and the love of Jesus Christ. Many people have discovered their personal callings at Stranded and have left with a new found confidence that God can use them. Don't be surprised if you are one of the many people that takes it to the next level and embarks on a journey to bring light to a dark, dangerous, or a despised place within a year following Stranded.

Stranded is held annually in May or June. Space is extremely limited.
