• Start memorizing the book of Titus in the King James Version. You will be required to memorize and recite the book word-perfect by the end of week 4.
  • Practice writing by hand, and ensure that your handwriting is legible, as you will have to take notes, write letters and keep a journal while you’re here.
  • Begin a personal physical training regimen. Daily PTs during Quest involve running, conditioning, and stretching, in addition to daily and weekly events that require significant physical exertion.
    • Before Quest, we recommend that you run two to three times a week, until you can run one mile continuously without slowing or stopping to rest.
    • Developing strength through correctly executed push-ups, sit-ups, squats, and pull-ups is vital.
  • Test your gear as much as possible.
    • Carefully review the Quest packing list, to ensure that you’ve got all the right equipment.
    • Make sure that your pack is the right size and can comfortably hold between twenty and thirty pounds.
    • Your tent should be light, but durable enough not to break or tear with heavy use.
    • Make sure your hiking shoes fit comfortably; a poor fit will cause blisters within an hour or two.
    • Before you arrive, clearly label all of your gear and clothing items with your name.
  • Finally, practice rising early and spending time in prayer and personal Bible study. Quest is designed to help you draw closer to the Lord; start now!
