About Timberline Lodge

Timberline Lodge was purchased in 1995 and run as a youth retreat center with an emphasis on vigorous outdoor activities.

 

Since then, we have added a Bible School and Discipleship Program and have expanded our outdoor adventure program, now called Mountain Adventure Ministry. Along with the growth we have recently added our Ascent Weeks programming. These weeks allow individuals to come out, enjoy the Rockies, and participate in specific personal interests while growing in their relationship with Christ.
