Robb Wiley is what every man wants to be when they grow up. Robb is uniquely built and hardwired for a life in the mountains and for leading and protecting others in the wild places that Robb calls home. He has been a professional big game guide and outfitter for over 28 years. He possesses a vast knowledge of both the livestock he depends on to get him, his clients and friends into the mountains, as well as the animals he pursues. Robb is a man of tremendous passion…just spend 5 minutes with him and tell me if you don’t believe you could go fight an army with your bare hands (…as long as Robb is with you). Robb is also passionate about the heart of men, especially the 18-year-old version of Robb. His life’s passion has become seeking out and mentoring young men who need to understand how to bridle their strength and passion to use it for kingdom purposes. Robb is married to his incredible wife Brenda and they are raising 2 beautiful daughters, Aspen and Autumn. If Robb is not in the office, well, we know he is on the mountain.
We all have a story. A time when the proverbial “wheels came off” of our lives. We have each had to decide if our life is worth rebuilding, fighting for, and piecing back together. The thing is, our God is in the business of writing comeback stories. He is the ultimate redeemer of lives and broken things. He is both restorer and hope giver.
Each of us has a story, and the world needs to hear it. In the midst of pain and fear, we need hope. Hope comes from hearing. And how can they hear, if we don’t speak?
Wild Courage exists to galvanize a generation of men, with the tools and courage to fight for what matters most…and to tell the stories that are born in the redemption of lives and souls.
Hope is found through stories of both brokenness and redemption.
Humility is the door to authentic relationships.
Hope comes from hearing.
Without the Redeemer there is no redemption.
Honoring each other above self.
