What is CTX Outdoor Recreation all about?

When it comes to leadership and spiritual development, many say that there is simply no better classroom than the great outdoors! In our quest of developing Christian leaders, Concordia University Texas views outdoor recreation as an ideal opportunity for accomplishing our mission--especially since our campus sits on a 250-acre preserve. Many of our trips are partnered with Ascend Outdoor Adventures, and all equipment and instruction is provided. Whether you're an avid outdoorsman, or new to the scene, we provide everything you need.
