Isaac Schmitke

Isaac is serving as support staff for our Alaska expedition. He has traveled to about 15 states, and three countries, including a nine-day backpacking trip through the forests of Honduras. He is currently enrolled at Messiah University in Pennsylvania and competes on the men’s soccer team.

Isaac is passionate about the outdoors. Over the past five years, he has had the opportunity to receive his rock climbing certifications and work as a land guide and leader at the outdoor school at the US National Whitewater Center. He enjoys mountain biking, running, kayaking, hiking, and especially whitewater rafting trips.

This past summer, he went skydiving for the first time for his birthday! Isaac believes that "pressing yourself to try new and different things, even if it makes you uncomfortable, allows you to see God from different perspectives and allows Him to push you to make new friends and reveal more about who you are as a person."
