After teaching and coaching for 24 years, Kevin and Gina Bickel felt led to pursue a desire that God had given them years prior, to start an outdoor ministry.  Seeking God’s direction, they established Next Generation West Ministries, ( a non-profit corporation.  Soon after, in January of 2013, God opened doors for a move to northwest Montana.  
Within that first year, God unexpectedly gave Kevin the  added responsibility of pastoring Canyon Baptist Church and leading Beyond Borders for Christ in the small town of Hungry Horse.  Beyond Borders for Christ is a ministry for kids K-12 that meets on Wednesday nights at the community’s school.
Since that time, God has allowed the development of “Summer in the Horse” a seven week kids’ ministry that meets Monday-Thursday mornings and includes lunch.  This program utilizes college-age summer missionaries, along with youth group and adult mission teams working with the kids, to establish relationships through which to share the love of Jesus.

Do all to the glory of God
