Over the past few years Bear Grylls has become the embodiment of adventure and outdoor survival in the public imagination. A former reservist in the SAS, Bear has climbed Everest, navigated the Northwest Passage and Paramotored over the Himalayas.
As well as being an adventurer, writer and television presenter, Bear is a former guest on Alpha and is sharing his story with the world as part of our global invitation to explore faith.
Here at Alpha we get the privilege of hearing stories from all across our country and from around the globe. Whether it’s from the streets of the Philippines or the sidewalks of New York or here in Canada it’s great to be reminded that everyone’s journey is different, and everyone’s story is unique.
Bear’s is one of millions of different stories of exploration—of asking life’s biggest questions without knowing what will be found. Despite a life characterized by risk, danger and the unknown, it is this exploration that he describes as his ‘greatest adventure’.
