New Views of Divine Goodness and Love G ina L indquist, E xecutive D irector
“…This time last year I was a student of Christian Science when I could be, when it was useful…but now I am a 24/7 demonstrator of Divine Science. …It’s easy to say ‘God is love’…but at the end of the day it is not the words that make you a Christian Scientist… It’s demonstrating it in every second of your life…” The preceding gratitude was shared by Michael, a 2015 DB National Leadership Council (NLC) student and soon to be counselor-intraining at the A/U Ranches.
2014 M etaphysical Theme
The above ideas encapsulate what it means to be a participant in an Adventure Unlimited (A/U) or DiscoveryBound (DB) program – to take what we know a step further to deepen our individual relationship to God.
Ea ch su cce ssive sta ge of experience unfolds new views of divi n e good n e ss a n d love. (S&H 66:14)
Reflecting on the past year, we are full of deep gratitude for all the ways we have seen these ideas manifested as we continue to implement our Strategic Plan. Evidence of this progress is throughout the 2013 Annual Report, in addition to the examples below: Our programs are expanding! We graduated two NLC classes for the first time; engaged adults (ages 18-30) through a Spiritual Activists Summit; hosted an unprecedented number of DiscoveryBound regional activities; and served the largest number of students to date through our 100 Elk Outdoor Center program. Partnerships have strengthened our base and keep us on a solid foundation. We are invested in our relationships, whether they are with affiliating organizations, our staff, or you. A broad-based initiative designed to meet the growing demand for our programs and to ensure A/U’s long-term sustainability has been quietly underway; you’ll hear much more about this exciting unfoldment later in the year. Sincere thanks to each of you who have been a part of our success! 2014 promises to be rich in “new views of divine goodness and love”, and we look forward to you being a part of it.

No Gift is too S m a ll! If considering a large gift is unrealistic, an easy way to give a little at a time is by creating a recurring gift. A few dollars given each month (think of it as one cup of Starbucks!) can make a significant difference. Recurring gifts help sustain Adventure Unlimited and DiscoveryBound by providing a steady stream of funds throughout the year. It’s easy – just go to the Giving pages on our websites. Those who give in this way join the ranks of our Sustaining Members.

DiscoveryBound is a Bridge As outlined in a newly developed 2014 – 2016 Strategic Plan, DiscoveryBound’s vision is to serve Christian Scientists and the greater community through fellowship in a dynamic, loving, healing, and inspiring atmosphere, which encourages growth in an understanding of Christian Science and service to the world. Recently we were asked, “Is DiscoveryBound a final destination or a gateway to other organizations?” DiscoveryBound (DB) activities are offered independently of other organizations. At the same time our activities benefit by engaging the involvement of other organizations. DB’s success depends on the support of these valued partnerships and our team of dedicated volunteers. DiscoveryBound is building bridges among Christian Scientists of all ages, including youth, adults and families across the United States and beyond. DB continues to explore innovative programming for all those we serve, including adults ages 21-35.
Two P rogram Components DiscoveryBound Outreach – “reaches out” beyond camp and church to invite those of all faiths to DB local chapter, regional and national events where they can see Christian Science in action. DiscoveryBound National Leadership Council – a four year servant leadership program for Christian Science high school students, dedicated to fostering spiritual growth, leadership qualities and a service approach to life. (See p. 10 for more information.) With the addition of a new Central Regional Manager, DiscoveryBound Outreach looks forward to solidifying its network of chapters, church contacts and volunteers, to better focus on those throughout the region. In the months ahead we will be sharing some exciting news with you regarding a new program for high school students. Look for DiscoveryBound’s 2014 Calendar on the inside back cover. See you at our next event, as a participant or volunteer!
2013 Progra m Highlights » 2 national events touched a total of 404 people » 16 regional events drew 644 attendees » 110 chapter activities were reported, up from 75 in 2012 » 3,339 participated in local activities

I n Their O wn Words :
Niklas, a DiscoveryBound Teen Thank you very much for supporting me and my brother, Liam, so we could attend a DiscoveryBound Regional Winter Weekend! During the weekend, I experienced a healing that really proves the power of love is demonstrated at these events.
When I was skiing, another skier unintentionally crossed over my path and I ended up falling and impacting my shoulder. I got up and felt a sharp pain on my collarbone, but gave it some prayerful thought and refuted the pain – I was here to have fun and express joy on the slopes, not to experience turmoil. I kept skiing for the rest of the day and the pain lessened. But that night I couldn’t lift my arm up. I told some of my friends about it, and I immediately
received their prayerful support. When I got home, my shoulder felt much better, and by the next day it was completely healed! This was my last DB event [as I’m graduating], and I can look back and see how much I have changed over the years while participating in DiscoveryBound. These events have inspired me to become a better person, and I feel I have definitely benefitted from the supporting environment they offer. I’m glad my brother is now in the DiscoveryBound family and he can grow and benefit from DiscoveryBound like I have. Niklas Teen DiscoveryBound Outreach Participant

I n Their O wn Words :
Jon, a DiscoveryBound Volunteer Jon had never attended a DiscoveryBound (DB) event as a teen, but he was asked to volunteer as a chaperone at a national DB program. He felt so inspired after that event, he paid over $400 for an airplane ticket to join a DB young adult weekend in Lake Mead. Jon said he seemed to be lacking a sense of direction, and over the weekend he literally found his path!
Peacefully, and still listening, they continued their hike. When they reached the next fork in the road, his friend asked, “Jon, which direction should we go?” Jon turned to God for direction and responded, “Let’s go left.” This turn led them to yet another fork in the road! Again, prayerfully, his friend asked, “Which direction should we go?” Jon again listened to God and decided they should walk left. Just around the bend was their group having the most beautiful church without walls in the crevice of Red Rock Canyon. What a demonstration!
On Sunday morning the group drove to Red Rock Canyon to experience a church without walls! Jon and a friend were taking care of some last minute errands and were late joining the group. They thought they’d be able to call the group and find out where to meet, but once they arrived they realized there was no cell phone service.
These weekend events are so powerful for young adults! They give them opportunities to get together with likeminded individuals, to practice Christian Science in a safe environment, and to leave with a renewed sense of connection for this faith and practice. Many people left that day with a deeper appreciation for Christian Science. The following weekend Jon drove five hours to attend his third DB event as a teen chaperone.
With dozens of trails to choose from, they started off into the canyon, just listening to God. As they were hiking with this calm sense from the weekend, they saw a group in the distance and decided to cross an expanded section of bushes and bramble, hoping it was their friends. Unfortunately, the group was just a group of rock climbers.

DiscoveryBound National Leadership Council
Service to Mankind DiscoveryBound’s National Leadership Council (NLC) keeps students in Christian Science by teaching them more than just how to fit in. It helps them belong to a community of like-minded thinkers that can benefit the world. Students apply to the program in 8th grade and bond with their classmates through their senior year in high school. The program curriculum focuses on different criteria each year including: individual goal setting, a summer camp experience, studying servant leadership, participating in the Congressional Award, preparing for service and adventure trips and praying for the world. There is a growing diversity in the internships and capstone projects fourth year students are pursuing in the field. Students are broadening their outreach to support all corners of the Christian Science community. Such service may involve assisting branch churches and reading rooms, CS care facilities, organizations serving CS constituents, schools, The Mother Church, ecumenical leaders and much more. Clearly the success of this program is dependent on the quality and commitment of our class leaders. Ideal candidates have worked with youth as teachers, coaches and counselors. Much time and prayer goes into the selection process. Each student must choose a mentor. Mentors are often humbled by the experience. They help the students with life’s lessons. Graduates from the NLC are enrolling in higher education programs at Principia, Lake Forest, West Point, the Naval Academy, Cornell, Harvard, University of the Pacific, James Madison, Cal Poly, Claremont McKenna, and serving in the military. As students are beginning to graduate from college, we’re exploring ways to keep the Alumni connected. If you know Christian Science students currently in 6th or 7th grade, we encourage you to share details about NLC, or let us know about the students and we can contact them about this life changing program. Call 888-416-7348 x135 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
NLC Progra m Highlights » NLC teens provided over 20,000 hours of local community service applied towards their Congressional Awards » Student participants have been recognized with the following Congressional Award medals – 91 Bronze, 28 Silver, 11 Gold » Almost 100 NLC teen articles published in the Christian Science periodicals

I n Their O wn Words :
Isabel, an NLC Graduate One of the first times I felt like I contributed to a healing was on our NLC Adventure Trip in California. We were kayaking on a river with our guides, enjoying great rapids and having a harmonious time. When we reached the campsite, one of my classmates ran into a poisonous oak bush. The effects seemed to spread quickly. I sat down with her and brought the week’s Bible Lesson on Life. We started reading slowly, calming our thought. One of the phrases that stood out was “no power can withstand divine Love.” Once we started to
understand this and we were focused less on what was going on with the physical picture, all sense of irritation went completely away. It was a very immediate healing for my friend and for me, for I witnessed how completely re-directing your thought can heal. This opened up a whole new world to me of being a practitioner for friends – not only for my NLC classmates, but for people in my own church and family. I gained a new confidence I needed to start that work. Isabel 2014 NLC Graduate
Adventure Unlimited Ranches
Lives Transformed The A/U Ranches are a timeless treasure. Throughout the year we are thankful to hear from alumni how their lives have been transformed because of experiences as campers, counselors and staff. The loving and inspiring atmosphere at the Ranches cultivates confidence and develops moral courage. Learning how these experiences shape the character of individuals as they leave our gates and enter their professions, communities and relationships encourages us to fortify our mission of “Opening Windows to God.” The spiritual component continues to be a fundamental cornerstone of our programming. We are continually exploring ways to strengthen this foundation. Skill building for Youth Campers is focused on program progression and character education. In the coming season, we will emphasize Bible Lesson Study as a vital tool for young Christian Scientists in helping them handle life experiences. As an organization, we are committed to supporting adults ages 18-35. An important way to keep them engaged in Christian Science is to provide opportunities to live it. At the A/U Ranches we employ these spiritual seekers and help them develop skills that will be beneficial in their next steps in life. Our family programs and reunions are a meaningful way for us to engage followers of all faiths in A/U activities. The Ranches’ 100 Elk Outdoor Center is another cherished outreach program that serves a diverse group geographically and economically. To better serve growing programs and to enhance all participants’ experiences, Wyly Lodge was renovated to make it a year-round resource. Larger groups and gatherings can now be comfortably accommodated. Under the watchful supervision of the Facilities team, maintenance and upgrades keep our operations safe while continually improving the Ranches, a precious asset. Look for the A/U Ranches 2014 Calendar on the inside back cover. We look forward to you and your family attending our programs. Welcome home – you are also invited to stop by and visit the Ranches anytime!
2013 Progra m Highlights » Provided programs for 800+ CS youth, adults and families » Employed over 160 Christian Scientists during the year as seasonal staff » Served almost 1,600 individuals from public and private schools through our 100 Elk Outdoor Center at the A/U Ranches

I n Their O wn Words :
Rachael, an A/U Alumna I attended A/U (both Sky Valley and Round-Up) in the 90s and was a part of the Detroit Michigan A/U Chapter throughout all of middle school and high school. The programs had a big effect on my life, and made me the adventurous spirit I am today. I have dedicated my life for the past 10 years to humanitarian volunteer work with non-profit organizations. I currently travel the world shooting humanitarian documentaries and doing photography. I have been all over Africa, India, Europe, etc. working with education for kids, drug education, drug rehab, criminal rehabilitation, human rights education and disaster relief work. My time at A/U was training for how to do what I do now, how to approach traveling all over the world,
helping kids in third world countries, post-war zones, remote villages, and big cities, inner-city zones, and everything in between. I wanted to tell everyone at A/U how incredible the program was and let anybody involved know that I want to acknowledge them for their work and encourage them to keep up the good work. It should be known that these programs not only benefit the youth going through them, but continue to benefit the future of our world, making it a better place because there are more strong, brave, confident, moral, ethical, spiritual, caring individuals in it because they were a part of A/U.

Making a Real Difference!
Robert B lackwell , A/U–DB F oundation P resident As you can see from these pages of our Annual Report, it has been another year of progress and unfoldment. The fruitage and stories of accomplishment and spiritual growth are inspiring, and we are deeply grateful to our supporters for helping us provide challenging and meaningful programs. Thanks to our 1,670 donors, including 282 new donors, we were able to meet our 2013 contributions budget of $2,145,000. This is the third consecutive year we’ve reached our contribution goals, and the seventh consecutive year our expenses have come in under budget. This fiscal responsibility, combined with generous support, has enabled us to provide for growing programs and expanded outreach. Adventure Unlimited’s mission for the past 59 years has been “Opening Windows to God.” We accomplish this by: Providing activities that push our participants beyond their comfort zone and show them they are capable of accomplishing much more than they thought possible by turning to God. Surrounding them with a loving atmosphere where they can witness and experience the healing effect of Christian Science. Giving them the support and encouragement that allows each person to be themself and feel good about who they are and what they have to give. Most importantly, program participants take their experiences home and live the principles in their daily lives in a way that blesses them, their families, the Christian Science movement and the world. Our goal for 2014 is to raise $2,250,000 for the Annual Fund, which includes funding for the A/U Ranches and DiscoveryBound Outreach and National Leadership Council. We need your continued financial support in order to provide these impactful activities and high quality programing. Thank you for your support that truly makes a difference.
