April-December: These hunts are intended for former players who want to come alongside Luke and the team at Peterson Outdoor Ministries to serve veterans by sharing the love of Jesus and the good news of his kingdom. We currently have three Wounded Veteran Hunts available for former players (alumni).
April 13th-20th: On this annual trip to Italy, we run a week-long camp for several German teams and nearly 60 German ballplayers. This is a highly relational trip where we get time each day to share our stories and love for Jesus with the players and hold studies about Jesus for them after a full day of practice.
September: This retreat is currently an invitation only retreat based on the location and structure of the time together. Each day consists of fly fishing, teaching sessions around the table and just a great time of relaxing and hanging with other men who played baseball and love Jesus.
November 11th-18th: We will spend time serving and staying with our missionary partner in Guatemala City. We will seek to build on our relationships that we have made in and around the city and continue to serve families through providing free baseball clinics for their kids and then also sharing the love of Christ as the reason we are doing so. And when we are not busy serving through baseball, we will take time to visit other local ministries that are helping to heal victims of extreme poverty and sexual abuse.
December 3rd-6th: The Increase Conference is a landmark event in the lives of many marriages and lives of players and their wives. Always an unforgettable week of solid teaching and Spirit-filled worship that is guaranteed to help you grow in your understanding and relationship with Christ.
December-January: These duck hunting retreats are intended for current players and alumni, and we can host a few of these each year based on scheduling and availability. If you would like to put together a hunting retreat with some of your teammates or with a small group of players and alumni that you would like to spend more time with then we’d love to make that happen.
January 10th-12th: This retreat brings back that clubhouse atmosphere for the weekend, but the focus is obviously not on winning games or advancing careers; it’s about drawing closer to Jesus as the King and one another as His Kingdom people. Over the course of the weekend, we will provide times of teaching and plenty of hang time for us to walk through life situations and struggles common to the professional athlete.
January 19th-26th: Our Dominican Republic trip is an action packed trip where we will spend most mornings and afternoons working alongside local missionaries helping them reach their communities through baseball clinics and then visiting with players at the various Major League Academies most evenings.
