A Closer Relationship with Christ
Each spring, men from Christ Our King travel to the mountains of Western North Carolina, leaving behind the noise of daily life for the quiet of nature. Spending time on the trail and around the campfire, they turn their hearts and minds toward higher things — they share their faith. Free from judgment, they experience counsel and understanding.
Physical, Spiritual, Communal
An outdoor adventure can be transformative. On the trail, men push themselves physically and spiritually. Sharing the Word, they embark on a journey that changes hearts. A lasting communal bond is established, and hikers become a “Band of Brothers.”
After the Hike
Men return from the trail refreshed, re-energized, and ready to be better disciples of Christ within the family, Church, and community. Reunions, family cookouts, and day hikes extend the Men's Hike experience well beyond the trail.
The three organizational meetings take place in the Russell House.

“There's no better way to break through the noise of my world than to get up on the mountain and out on the trail where the Holy Spirit and my brothers in Christ can focus on the basics. That's when we're reminded that the main thing is our personal relationship with our Father. There's no experience quite like it. I recommend it to any man who is ready to hit the reset button and strengthen his relationship with his Creator.”
“As the hike progressed, I began to pull away the layers and dig deep where my burdens have been staying for a long time. There came a moment around a raging camp fire deep in the mountains of the Pisgah National Forest where I had a group of men, I now refer to as my Band of Brothers, praying over me. Freeing me from a burden that has affected so many aspects of my life. That is a memory that will be forever ingrained in me. If you have heavy burdens to let go and want an experience that will force you out of your comfort zone, I would highly encourage anyone to go on this hike.”
