 THE TRUE SUMMIT DOCUMENTARY

THE TRUE SUMMIT DOCUMENTARY

Filmed on a breathtaking, iconic trek to EVEREST BASE CAMP with a group of men, The True Summit traverses the vast undiscovered country between a man’s head and heart to find his best story lives in the epic story of God.

The True Summit documentary will capture the spirit of BASE CAMP NATION, as it reveals the heart of everyman, a raw glimpse of how God writes His redemptive story through RETELLING YOUR STORY.

It’s a story of 18,000+ Ft. that discovers the greatest journey is 18 inches.

The hardest climb is not 18,000+ Ft in the Himalayas. The hardest climb is 18 inches from our head to our heart.

The True Summit is a gift to receive, not a goal to achieve.

The True Summit is BASE CAMP because nothing heals in thin air. 

The True Summit is climbing in, not up. 

The True Summit is who we are, not what we do.

WHY STORYTELLING EVENTS?

We believe Story is a tool that every ministry can use to evangelize and disciple men. Why? 

It’s Accessible 

No big-budget programs or superstar speakers are needed. Every ministry can reach men through story.

It’s Attractive 

Story has a way of captivating the imagination in a way that no other technique can.

It’s Authentic 

Vulnerable stories brew what men thirst- genuine brotherhood in Christ.

It’s Authoritative 

You can’t deny the truth of a man transformed by Christ.

WHAT CHURCH LEADERS ARE SAYING

“Base Camp is a place where I can invite men who are otherwise not comfortable in church. 

Steve Huizinga, Providence Christian Reformed Church, Caledonia, MI 

“Base Camp has been a powerful experience for the men of our community.

Steve Roskamp, Foundations Church, Loveland, CO

“This past year we launched Base Camp Rochester and instantly an unspoken thirst was quenched.   

Dave Frank, Faith Lutheran Church, Troy, MI

WHAT’S BASE CAMP?

WHAT’S A STORY RETREAT?

WHAT CHURCH LEADERS ARE SAYING

“This past year we launched Base Camp Rochester and instantly an unspoken thirst was quenched.   

We saw 120 men attend and bring friends who have nothing to do with God or church to hear a man’s story of hurt, shame and redemption…I saw multiple men take their friends to the attached restaurant and share a meal and meaningful conversation.  

To know that men were able to sit and process what they heard together and, God-willing, share their own perspective and story is just down right exciting…   

Base Camp has been a bright spot in our men’s ministry and we are at the point where people are asking us when the next one is all the time.  

Dave Frank, Faith Lutheran Church, Troy, MI

“As a pastor of a local church I am always looking for ways to unleash the missional capacity of everyday people.  Base Camp has been an invaluable tool for us.

It’s helped our men name their unique opportunity to reach their zip code as well as create onramps to spiritual conversations with their neighbors. We can’t wait for our next event!”

Steve Hubbard, Awaken Wesleyan Church, Grand Ledge, MI 

“Base Camp is a place where I can invite men who are otherwise not comfortable in church. 

I’ve felt the guilt and shame of my past, and have felt I wasn’t good enough to attend church.  Basecamp is a safe place where men meet, share stories, not judge, give grace, and seek redemption.  Basecamp truly is a unique ministry that is starting to relight the fire in men’s hearts that has long been extinguished by guilt and shame.

Steve Huizinga, Providence Christian Reformed Church, Caledonia, MI 

“Base Camp has been a powerful experience for the men of our community.

I believe men have suffered from the lack of shared story; in this society we no longer have a place where we can come together in a relaxed setting, share our lives with each other, and learn from the mess and glory of each other’s experiences. Base Camp has provided that for us.

We consistently hear from the men that attend that they appreciate the opportunity to fellowship and be inspired by other men. The energy that is clearly present on these evenings challenge men to walk with passion and commitment. We are excited to see how God uses this ministry in the months and years ahead!”

Steve Roskamp, Foundations Church, Loveland, CO

I value the goals Grace Explorations has established to reach men without shame… The leaders and other men are announcing, ‘We will love and respect your deepest self no matter what. The past does not define you…We will explore all the ways greater grace can come to you.’ Thus, Grace Explorations.”
