Experiencing God Through Nature

The outdoors is one of the many opportunities that we want to provide at IMF for connections. IMF Outdoors was created for this purpose: Experiencing God through nature. It is IMF Outdoors’ mission to serve others by bringing awareness to ministries outside the church walls; whether you are hunting, fishing, camping, skiing, etc. 
Individuals who may not be willing to attend church, can experience God through these ministries. Our goal at IMF is to support and enable our members the ability to utilize these ministries and connect with one another.

The Wilderness Fellowship Ministries


In operation since 1972, the Wilderness Fellowship Ministries is a four-season ministry facility which provides a place of retreat and refreshment that fosters Godly intimacy. Nestled between two lakes, it is located 10 miles northwest of Frederic, Wisconsin on 250 acres of rolling wooded land with frontage on two good fishing lakes, miles of hiking trails, lots of wildlife and beauty.  Retreat facilities include personal prayer cabins, larger cabins for groups or families, a large meeting-retreat-fellowship facility, as well as many campsite spots. Some facilities are rustic and others are completely modern. We operate by donation only and have diligently worked to provide a place where God’s people can come away and hear His voice.

Land of Promise


In 1992, we lost our eleven year old daughter, Cerissa, to a tragic accident. After Such a painful experience, the Lord placed a desire in our hearts to share the gift he has given to us with others. Out of the deep love he gave us for our daughter grew an ability to feel compassion for those who are hurting and a strong desire to share His love with others.

Fishing For Life


Founded in 2004, Fishing for Life has spent more than a decade serving youth, families, veterans & communities through fishing and outdoor programs.

That’s our mission, but here’s what we’re really about: Relationships. First and foremost is our relationship with Christ. He is the reason why we do what we do. Secondly, we intentionally create fishing and other outdoor programs and events to enter us into relationships with youth, families, veterans and communities throughout our state.

God's Mystical Grace Outdoors


With the foundational help of the living God through the sacrificial life of our Lord Jesus within the anointed protective guidance of the Holy Spirit we have started an outdoor ministry called "God's Mystical Grace Outdoors". This is something the Lord put on my heart several years ago. We will be gathering at various times and locations. Look for updates, weather cancellations, and opportunities to taste the goodness of God's powerful undeserved grace outdoors.
We will go on spontaneous conversational hikes. and activities. We will gather at local, county, state parks. Start our hike or activity with prayer and somewhere along the way we will stop for a reflection in nature, bring in everyday life, and include the gospel. I will do my best to keep reflections around 10 - 25 minutes (goal is to hopefully stimulate open conversation). Then we will share communion together at times, close in prayer, and continue our hike or activity reflecting, fellowshipping, and encouraging one another.
This is a non-denominational ministry. The goal is to reach the unchurched, broken-hearted, weary, and people searching for something more in life. It's for everyone. Everyone has something share. Everyone's invited. We will look at life's brokenness. Being intentional in engaging how our living God has created nature to bring healing, encouragement, affirmation while seeking our personal intimacy.
