Mission: Kilimanjaro 2023

Discovering the Bible

Gary Fallesen 0 133

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.”

‘How did you get this way?’

Gary Fallesen 0 1459

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.
