Tim and Julie Christensen serve as part of the ROOTS (Reclaiming Original Outdoor Technology and Skills) team with the James and Lopez families. Through this innovative program, ROOTS partners with the Penelakut community to help find hope and true healing. Much of this work revolves around outdoor activities such as archery, kayaking, fishing, camping and a weekly youth program. By challenging Penelakut children, youth and adults to learn and grow in activities once central to their culture, our team is helping them rediscover the skills of their past. In the process, we are pointing the people of Penelakut to their Creator and to Christ.
