Welcome to our 19th Annual Sportsmen's Fellowship Event!
This year, we would like to introduce to you, as our Main Speaker for 2021:
Attacked by a Grizzly Bear and lived to tell about it!
In September of 2015, James VanSteenhouse, an avid sportsman and adventurer, headed
to Canada to pursue his dream of hunting and taking a bull moose with a bow and arrow.
The Adventure did not go as planned. Deep in the wilderness and miles from base camp, he went from the hunter to the prey, by an unseen grizzly bear. A man of faith, found his faith tested that day, when he was being tossed like a rag-doll, ripping of his flesh, breaking of his bones, and raking into his skull. He survived by the grace of God and the help from his young Canadian guide.
In reflecting on his "near death" experience, he said, "if you don't run into the devil from time to time, you may question if you're running in the same direction."
Come listen to the rest of his story...
