There's a New Christian Outdoor Group in Central Florida!

Heartland Christian Outdoor Enthusiasts Group was founded out of the desires of Bob Adams & Lori Clinch Adams to enjoy their favorite outdoor activities with others of the Christian faith who were as avid and adventurous as they are......and to do so near their home in Winter Haven/Lakeland, Polk County, FL. 


A description of the group, found on Facebook is: 

We are a non/trans-denominational group with a common bond of having a personal faith and commitment to Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior who love participating in human-powered outdoor activities.

Through spending time outdoors in God’s creation with more of His Kids, our desire is to experience:

• An expansion of our love for God and knowledge of Him

• Wholesome, encouraging fellowship and friendship

• Improvement in our health and wellbeing

• Adventures in new geographical areas

• Gaining new skills and abilities

• Opportunities for doing good, glorifying God and sharing His Good News with those who do not yet know Him

[“Let your light shine before men, that they may see your good deeds and praise your Father in heaven” Matthew 5:16]

On the facebook group page, members themselves can post and event and volunteer to be the facilitator of that event and are encouraged to share their knowledge and skills with others.

“A private relationship of worshiping God is the greatest essential element of SPIRITUAL FITNESS.   It is in the unseen life that you become perfectly fit.”

"Outdoor exercise is the healthiest form of fitness – not only for the environment, but for the soul."

'The best remedy for those who are afraid, lonely or unhappy is to go outside, somewhere where they can be quiet, alone with the heavens, nature and God. Because only then does one feel that all is as it should be and that God wishes to see people happy, amidst the simple beauty of nature.'        -Anne Frank-

'Climb the mountains and get their good tidings. Nature's peace will flow into you as sunshine flows into trees. The winds will blow their own freshness into you... while cares will drop offlike autumn leaves' - John Muir

'And forget not that the earth delights to feel your bare feet and the winds long to play with your hair.'
