We are a regional network, community and ministry of men in the Midwest – a Band of Brothers – that are committed to challenge and raise up men to be warriors for Christ… for their families… as single men… in their workplaces… and in their “community” with others in this world. Men need other men to stand strong and lead courageously and reject passivity, to be physically, mentally and spiritually trained to engage this world with the power of Jesus Christ. We seek transformation of the heart and a true commitment to Matthew 22:36-38. We desire to build and disciple men to lead others down that road. Those are Biblical values. Those are our values.

Peak Challenge 2015 saw 200 men from 15 states and 60+ different churches! Go to our Facebook page to see more.
Peak Challenge 2016- August 4-8, 2016 in Leadville, Colorado
Peak Challenge is an annual opportunity for men, their sons, fathers, brothers and friends to get away from the everyday routines in life and to experience all that God has for them in a wild setting – the mountains of Colorado. This is not a “retreat” but rather an advance of men who seek to experience God in a way that will resonate deep within their souls. Peak Challenge takes place every July in Colorado and men from around the country are part of the experience. Men are challenged physically while in Colorado hiking 14,000 foot peaks, biking and whitewater rafting. But more importantly, men are challenged spiritually to engage in the battle like never before, as they will see what is at stake.
The mountains are calling and I must go – John Muir
Every summer during my childhood, I spent weeks and weeks on end in the Rocky Mountains camping, hiking, exploring and learning from God through His creation. It was also a time where my Dad instilled biblical manhood in me as we trekked across pristine tundra and steep mountain trails. For a boy and later as a young man, there was no greater classroom.
In 2006, that experience was shared with 15 men from the Omaha area connected with King of Kings Church. Since that time, God has used the Peak Challenge experience to reach more than 1,500 men and their families across 22 states and six nations, impacting their lives forever.
2015 was our 10th Anniversary. We are humbled and thankful for the legacy that God has imparted to so many men, their families and their communities. Just as there is a draw to the mountains, we too understand that God is calling men and we must go.

Peak Challenge 2016 will have its “Basecamp” at Printer Boy Campground near Leadville, Colorado.
At more than 10,000 feet above sea level, Leadville is a gateway to summer adventure for our men. Close to the restaurants and shops but also close to wilderness areas, the Leadville region offers a multitude of adventure sports (whitewater rafting, kayaking, mountain biking, jeeping, ATV riding, trailrunning and more).
Leadville is 45 miles south of Copper Mountain. Copper Mountain is about 75 miles west of Denver on Interstate I-70. Your experience at Peak Challenge 2016 will introduce you to some of the most breathtaking and majestic scenery in all of America. As it has for men over the last ten years, the immense scale and beauty of the Rocky Mountains will call out to you and the awe and wonder of God and his creation will resonate in your soul.
