Nurturing Faith Experiences (NFEs) strike a unique balance between traveling with a large tour group where you’re herded like buffalo — or striking out on your own without insider knowledge and access.

NFEs are small-group (limited to 18 persons) experiences that allow for resting your mind and invigorating your senses — while a local host (Bruce Gourley), who is deeply familiar with the destinations, plans the agenda, shows the way and provides the insights.

With personal planning that starts more than a year in advance, the small group is able to enjoy superb, close-up accommodations as well as great meals and remarkable displays of nature.

So if you are thinking about summer now, please consider joining us for one of two Nurturing Faith Experiences to the Rocky Mountains this summer. Details are at

Old West: Yellowstone/Cody, set for July 14-21, takes in the oldest and largest national park — plus a drive along “America’s 50 most beautiful miles” to the western town of Cody, Wyoming, where a nightly rodeo is held.

The return drive across the scenic Beartooth Highway will allow for a picnic at 10,000 feet and then a drive through bison-filled Lamar Valley. Currently there are six remaining spots for this experience; so act quickly!

Yellowstone/Tetons Adventures, set for July 21-28, is a more-active experience that includes hiking and rafting in two national parks — plus horseback riding and a cowboy cookout on a Montana ranch. Eleven spaces are now open for this experience.

Whichever one you choose, you are sure to see wonders of nature that amaze and inspire you. And great memories are made during these shared experiences.

Plus, we won’t make you wear matching shirts or tag-along behind colorful signs or umbrellas. Or make you choose between rubber chicken and tough roast beef.

In fact, choosing from an impressive dinner menu is about the only challenging choice you have to make.

You get to relax — and enjoy! We’ll just treat you like friends while we share delicious meals and inspiring experiences.

Oh, and did I mention the Clark’s Fork cinnamon rolls to get us off to a great start?

Prices include everything from meeting your arrival at the Bozeman airport — until you return there. Join us — while there is still time and space!
