Helping People Take Their Next Step
We believe that everyone is on a journey and everyone has a next step that they will take. Big Horn Ministries exists so that a person’s next step will be one closer to Christ. Relationships and Recreation in God’s Creation are the context for people to take this next step.
Relationship is at the core of who God is (The Trinity) and how He intends for us to function and grow. We believe that it is in the context of relationships that we can take our next step closer to Christ.
One of God’s greatest blessings to us is the ability to enjoy His Creation. While looking at a beautiful alpine valley is great, hiking through it and seeing all the secret “nooks and crannies” is much more powerful. And while watching a cascading mountain stream is nice, standing in it while casting a delicate fly to a hungry trout or shooting it’s rapids in kayak or raft is infinitely more enjoyable.
Romans 1:20 tells us that in that which is seen (His Creation), we can begin to see that which is unseen (The Creator). It is with this understanding, that we seek to help people know and understand our Lord in some of the most beautiful Creation on earth.
Get Started On Your Next Steps
We know the busyness of life, especially for those in full-time ministry, can be overwhelming.

Spence and Annette Nicholl are the closest thing we have to a pastor. They keep us "in the game." They shepherd our hearts, renew our spirits and challenge us with new ideas and adventures in such a fun and natural way, we hardly know what they are doing until its done! We plan our whole year around the time we block out to spend at Big Horn Ministries. For us, it is the only time we get to experience God apart from the pressure, pain and people of ministry that tend to crowd out the face of God. It gives our whole family something to look forward to and keeps all of us healthy physically, spiritually and emotionally. We believe our kids will have a healthier view of God because of the time we spend with the Nicholls and that, in and of itself, is worth the 24 hour drive out there!
