Master Guide Outdoors (MGO)

Master Guide Outdoors is an NAD sponsored ministry, with expeditions that are coordinated by properly trained Master Guides and designed by Conference/Union Youth Directors.

Master Guide Outdoors Expeditions are journeys undertaken by a group of Master Guides and their friends with the intentional purpose of exploring nature, seeking to connect with God and our neighbor.
