Discipling Guys is where it all started. We have a passion for a generation of young men to be raised up in strong leadership. To be fathers in a fatherless generation. To tackle head on the crisis in leadership that we see in today’s church and to breathe life into the Body.

Soul Edge gets its name from its affiliation with Soul Survivor, but also its stated intention to push you to the EDGE of your mental, physical and spiritual walks! We do not intend to apologize for the number of challenges we set!

In 2015, like in 2014 and 2013, we combined the epicness of our Guys course, with the distinctives of our Girls course, to create one all encompasing co-ed session! We are not lowering the bar, we are raising it!


This will be the best experience of your life so far, but its just the start of an adventure that will only get more encapsulating as you continue to run towards Jesus.

Long Term Mission for 2016 in the Land of Northern Lights

Pelican Narrows

Have you heard of the First Nations People in Canada? No? Well neither have all the other Mission and Christian Gap year organizations in Europe and the UK. In fact, we hardly ever hear about them! 

Do something different with your Gap year! We have been leading missions to Pelican Narrows, a First Nations Community in Northern Saskatchewan now for years, as well as our longer mission to Africa. However, we have come to realize that we see God move so powerfully, and everyone LOVES Pelican narrows so much that it makes more sense for us to move our outreach based to a new home, here in the North! 

The First Nations people are by definition the first people (Aborigional Peoples) who inhabited Canada before the influx of settlers from Europe. They are a proud and wonderful people, and we are honored to be welcomed into their community, to fight alongside them for love, justice and change. Take a look at the video below, and send us an email, and we can send you a fact sheet about our new base! 

God is moving so powerfully here, and its mind blowing to be a part of it! We do miss the red soil of Africa on our shoes, but the ministry is no less powerful, it is in our own language, and it is just as memorable! 

Oh yeh, and instead of climbing Mt. Kenya, we'll be doing loads of mountians in Canada- as always, PLUS an epic canoe adventure at the end of the course!
