Christian Ministry in the National Parks

John Muir once noted, "No synonym for God is so perfect as Beauty."

Whether you're passing through the parks with your family, live nearby, or are working seasonally, we'd love to worship God together in the beauty and splendor of the great outdoors! All worship service dates, times, and locations are pending National Park Service permit approval and are subject to change. 
A Christian Ministry in the National Parks originated in 1951 when founder Warren Ost, a Princeton Seminary student, worked in Yellowstone for the summer and noticed the various faith-based needs of park visitors, residents, and his own co-workers. One Sunday, he led an interdenominational service of worship in the bar area of the Old Faithful Inn, and thus ACMNP was born. We like to say we were doing bar ministry long before it was in style!
