Vessels For Honor Rafting is now Journey Quest! In late 2011, Vessels for Honor Rafting Co (VFH) was purchased by Journey Quest, a non-profit Christian wilderness ministry dedicated to providing “Christ-centered wilderness journeys, challenging young and old alike to pursue the ultimate quest: a lifelong relationship with Christ.”
VFH was founded by Dwight & Sandy Grant, now Camp Administrator at Penn-York Camp in Ulysses Pennsylvania. Dwight and Sandy operated VFH through the summer of 2011. The inspiration behind the name Vessels For Honor comes from the Biblical passage in 2 Timothy 2:21: “Therefore, if any man cleanses himself from these things he will be a vessels for honor, sanctified, useful to the master, prepared for every good work.”
Journey Quest continued to operate as Vessels for Honor Rafting through the 2012 rafting season to give time to introduce Journey Quest’s ministry to returning VFH guests and clients. Dwight Grant helped Journey Quest with guide training, and half of the guides this summer returned from previous seasons with VFH.
Journey Quest plans to continue to offer the same exciting whitewater rafting adventures that have been so popular with VFH’s guests over the years. Their staff are hard at work promoting the Journey Quest name; updating brochures and other marketing collateral, labeling boats & vehicles, and replacing signage. They plan to complete the transition complete by the time rafting season begins in May 2013.
