Mission: 2022-2023

Where HIS name is unknown

Paul wrote to the church in Rome that his “ambition has always been to preach the Good News where the name of Christ has never been heard, rather than where a church has already been started by someone else” (Romans 15:20, NLT).

Climbing For Christ shares a similar passion and vision. Our primary purpose is to GO where others cannot or will not. In other words, mountainous areas where people are waiting to hear the Good News of Jesus – even if they don’t know they’re waiting for it.

We do GO again and again and again to some places to plant, water, and watch God make the church grow. Then comes the day when it is time to move on. This happened in Haiti, where God raised up the “Next Generation” led by Gilbert Lindor and others.

Our goal is always to equip, empower, and encourage indigenous workers.

In Tanzania and Malawi, we have focused on making disciples (guides and porters working on Mount Kilimanjaro and Mulanje Massif, respectively) who will make more disciples. We can only visit for a brief time, and we are outsiders; those trained for disciple-making movements live where we are interlopers.

In Nepal, we visited the Humla district in the northwest corner of the country seven times in 10 years, including Mission: Nepal 2021. We went to Humla when no one else was GO-ing there and witnessed the growth of the church from a handful to several hundred. Other ministries are now serving there. As Paul told the church at Rome, “I have finished my work” in that region (Romans 15:23).

Then it was time for C4C to GO from Nepal’s northwest to the east.

Kangchenjunga.

“Kangchenjunga is a remote (area) and missionaries never have been to those sides,” our Nepali Kingdom worker said, referring to the trek into the world’s third-highest mountain. “Those people are under the bondage of darkness and have never heard about Jesus Christ.

“C4C’s trip there will be valuable and carry the Good News among the people groups in those mountains.”

Mission: 2022 included a Kangchenjunga trek in an unreached region of eastern Nepal, which will be repeated in 2023. There are other new areas to be explored – possibly in south, central, and southeast Asia – and old areas to be returned to, such as eastern Turkey, the Peruvian Andes, East Africa, and Indonesia.

Here is the tentative Mission: 2022 calendar:

  • Kilimanjaro, March 24-April 9, 2022
  • Nepal, May 17-June 8, 2022
  • Turkey, August, 2022 [note: you must be a registered member and log-in to access this page]
  • Peru, Oct. 17-Nov. 2, 2022 - postponed until 2023

Mission: 2023 will continue what began in 2022. Lord willing, the plan is to GO to:

These trips are open to Climbing For Christ members, who must apply to GO on mission. There are other trips that may be happening but are not open to members. Watch for details on Expedition pages.

Himachal Pradesh, a northern Indian state in the western Himalayas, has many spiritual strongholds. “Himachal Pradesh needs Jesus as its Savior,” our ministry partner says. “We are praying for it.”

The apostle Paul’s ambition was always to preach the Good News where the name of Christ had never been heard, rather than where a church has already been started by someone else (Romans 15:20). Climbing For Christ shares a similar passion and vision. Mission: 2022-2023 continues our primary purpose to GO where others cannot or will not.

Mission: Kilimanjaro 2023

Discovering the Bible

Gary Fallesen 0 383

Climbing For Christ has come a long way from its birth by God in the heart of Gary Fallesen before a Kilimanjaro climb in 1998. Guides and porters do more than work on Mount Kilimanjaro now. They are disciples being taught to make disciples and plant churches in East Africa. We are celebrating the 25th anniversary of Gary’s first climb and teaching Kilimanjaro Chapter members more about “Discovering the Bible.”

Mission: Peru 2023

Delivering Good News to distant and forgotten people

Gary Fallesen 0 354

We are returning to the scene of the climb, a trek in the northern reaches of the Cordillera Blanca we visited in 2015. We had planned to GO there in 2022, but that was not God's plan (Proverbs 16:9). Mission: Peru 2022 was rescheduled for 2023 because of serious illnesses in the family of our national worker.

Mission: Ararat 2022

‘We will spread our religion’

Gary Fallesen 0 39

MEMBERS ONLY PAGE. The Muslim background believer – a rarity in the modern-day country where the early Church began – spoke about the “Light that will enlighten us and save us all” in Turkey. “May the light of Jesus Christ be upon us always,” he declared recently.

Mission: Nepal 2022

‘A Man will appear’

Gary Fallesen 0 1926

A strenuous nine- or 10-day trek into a new, remote area is scheduled for May. Climbing For Christ has trekked throughout the north-central, Mid-West, and northwest corner of Nepal, covering hundreds of miles. God is sending us to the Kangchenjunga Conservation Area.

Mission: Haiti 2022

Swept away

Gary Fallesen 0 1442

Climbing For Christ has been providing instruction, prayer, and support in the mountains of Haiti since 2005. The New Generation took over where we left off in 2014 with our financial support and ongoing advice.

We are returning to the scene of the climb, a trek in the northern reaches of the Cordillera Blanca we visited in 2015. This trip is cancelled until 2023.

Mission: Kilimanjaro 2022

‘How did you get this way?’

Gary Fallesen 0 1702

Climbing For Christ has been teaching guides and porters in the Kilimanjaro Chapter how to evangelize since we organized them in 2008. This has led to a disciple-making movement around Mount Kilimanjaro, the tallest mountain in Africa and the birthplace of Climbing For Christ.
