Upcoming Trips

These are the primary ways we support Tabitha Ministy 

Prayer Friends

Many current families and graduate families sponsor children at Tabitha. This sponsorship provides an avenue for encouragement through writing letters and sending family pictures. The money from this monthly sponsorship provides breakfast and lunch for the children, school supplies, and supports Children’s HopeChest staff as they give of themselves to serve these children.

Annual Trips

Every year, since the partnership began, we take a group of students to visit and serve the children in Tabitha. Every year, we are amazed how a week with these kids transforms both ministries. It is incredible to see the power of God at work in this community and His love for the children and the poor displayed as we partner with Tabitha.

Development Projects

Meeting physical needs supports the gospel message. With Children’s HopeChest, we assist Tabitha in moving towards sustainable projects, income, and ministry.


One very unique aspect of our school is an emphasis in canyoneering, which is traveling in canyons using a variety of techniques that may include scrambling, climbing, rappelling, and swimming. Students travel to locations such as Zion National Park, the Grand Canyon, and South eastern Utah to descend technical canyons.

Classrooms + Wilderness

Along with classroom lectures, students spend ample time outdoors putting their skills to practice–both locally and out of state.
