Brent O'Neill


Our mission reach out to college students in the NW and around the world to help them grow as people and in their spiritual journey.  From the cliffs we climb to the rivers we raft, we help people pursue real relationships with God and others.  We believe this is our greatest adventure and our greatest reward.

Our method is experiential learning. As opposed to a lecture or letting mountains speak for themselves, we intentionally use the activity to draw parallels and make the experience stick. We learn together in a grace-filled community, the truth of God and His Word being our guide.  A Lifelines experience has four significant elements: Adventure, Experience, Connection, and Authenticity. While most involve outdoor adventure, we also do many of them indoors or on the campus green.

Lifelines is part of the interdenominational Christian ministry called Cru, which has a presence on more than 1,100 campuses in the United States. Our purpose is to use the outdoors to help people grow in relationship with God, in relationships with each other, in character and in leadership. Our main audience is college students, although we also serve high school students, faculty, and Cru staff members.

Will you join our team by giving financially and prayerfully to our ministry as we seek to reach out the the next generation of students?
