“Thank you, back2basics! My family and I wanted to take a vacation to spend some quality time together. Michael Batenburg and his back2basics outdoor adventure ministry suggested a hunting, fishing adventure in Georgia. Let me tell you, we could not gave asked for a better time. We were able to go turkey and hog hunting, fishing, and 4-wheeling. The excursions were amazing but the best part of the trip was being able to get back2basics and spend quality time with loved ones away from electronic distractions. Not only were we surrounded by great hosts, the food was AMAZING! The accommodations were very comfortable, cozy, and clean. It was very kid friendly, my nephews of 8, 10 and 12 years all had a great time enjoying nature and learning many new outdoor skills that we are already planning our next trip. Thank you Michael and Pastor Kyle for such an amazing experience. I would recommend back2basics outdoor adventures to everyone and I am looking forward to our next adventure together.” Karim G 
“The Lake Lure NC invitation to join pastor leaders at White Oak Point was an amazing and inspirational experience. The cabin accommodations and amenities exceeded expectations. With lead Pastors, Navigators, CBMC leaders, Outdoor Ministry, business owners, and more, gathered together sharing and growing in faith and fellowship, I can’t think of attending a more significant growth event in my 40 years of walking in faith. Please prayerfully consider my attendance for next years event.”
“Thank you so much! The boys had such a great experience! The are life memories we will cherish forever. I am so glad we got to do this event together. Back2Basics is truly a group of servants who have the right message to share in the right environment. I want my boys to see and understand that involving god everyday and in everything they do is easy when focused and intentional. Surrounding yourself with good, kind, like minded people helps make that happen. What an amazing way to share the lords message and blessing. Thank you and god bless you for all that you do.” Michael P
“I just wanted to give a special thanks to Michael and back2basics for such a special day on the water. Such a blessing to enjoy the bountiful gifts the lord has given us along with his favor. Spending time with friends fishing creates such a positive environment and fellowship. I’m always thankful to enjoy and treasure these special moments. I’m looking forward to our next back2basics adventure and may the lord bless you on all future endeavors.  We are honored to be a part of what you are doing. Thank you once again, god bless.” Paul K
“Michael, The full moon paddle adventures that I’ve had the opportunity of being a part of have been nothing short of amazing. It’s great to see people from different churches and backgrounds all coming together as one body enjoying gods creation. Thank you for back2basics, creating adventures with one goal in mind - making disciples while lifting up the name of Christ through creation. Keep your feet wet, bro!! (Matt 14:29)” Troy
“Wanted to do a shoutout of thankfulness for back2basics ministry! They held a fellowship picnic event at Mayakka state park. It was amazing to be surrounded by likeminded people outside enjoying food, fun, and fellowship in the beautiful outdoors! They have servant hearts putting activities together in a faith based environment. I am looking forward to future events.” Paula
“Since being introduced to and participating in back2basics outdoor ministry meetings and events, I feel like I’ve become part of a family. Being able to spend quality time and fellowship with people who are like minded and do things together outside is one of the greatest blessings anyone can experience. Being able to take our minds off technology and Basque in gods creation has really helped me get outside the everyday norm and just let loose of the worries that this world brings. Michael and the back2basics servant leaders are an amazing blessing who show love with open arms to everyone who participates which is not only rare, it’s truly amazing. Since the first time I talked with Michael I knew that I found the right group of people to help me grow personally, professionally, and spiritually together. Gods blessings to back2basics outdoor christian ministry.” Cameron O
