Jen Henriksen

Owner / Travel Administrator

Jen’s passion for travel began at a very young age when she left her small town in upstate NY and traveled cross-country to find adventure. That was thirty years ago, and she’s been adventuring ever since! As a Travel Administrator, Jen creates & leads different trips around the world for all different groups. Christian Schools, Church Groups, Youth Groups, Homeschool Groups, Private Groups as well as the general public! Some examples of trips include: Mission Trips to Italy, France, Spain, & Germany;  Month-long High School Study Abroad Programs in Italy, England & Spain; Family Mission Trips to the Out Islands of the Bahamas; & Ladies Only Trips to Italy & France! Plus, there's more! How about some adventure trips such as Swim with the Manatees, Snow Skiing Trips, Whitewater Rafting, & Backpacking Trips! Leading and administrating trips for over 1,200 travelers since 2012, Jen's experience runs the gamut from group trips where everyone knows each other to whole trips filled with people that have never met until departure day! There's an Adventure for everyone! And with a high percentage of return travelers you can certainly see that she’s working within the strengths that God has gifted her for!

Jen and her entire Mission: Adventuring team are looking forward to adventuring alongside YOU, very soon!

Who We Are
Mission: Adventuring is a Christian Mission Trip and Adventuring travel company that is fully licensed, bonded and insured. We offer a variety of All-inclusive guided trips to destinations in North America and around the world. Our travel packages include public group trips as well as private groups trips for travelers of all ages. Our passion is introducing travelers to New Adventures where they are able to experience God through His breathtaking creation, vibrant cultures and diverse people groups while serving as an ongoing source of encouragement to our Ministry Partners around the world.

We're thrilled to be able to offer trips that continue to support these Ministry Partners as we've been serving alongside them for the past six years and their families are very much like family to us. We'll be able to continue our goal of bringing people into a closer personal relationship with Jesus Christ through our fellowship and connection with their ministries.

Getting the Word Out
As we are just getting started, one of the most valuable ways you can help is to assist us in getting the word out to as many people as possible. Please consider sharing one of our posts on Facebook or Instagram,  passing on our website or sharing our Blog post with your family, friends, your church group, group school, homeschool co-op, etc. We would so appreciate your assistance with getting the word out!

Follow our Blog as we share all things Missions and Adventure! We're planning to share some great travel stories as well as travel tips for all ages. We'll shine a spotlight on past travelers' experiences as well as introduce you to some of our amazing friends we've made along the way in our own travels. Our focus of these posts will be both motivational as well as inspirational and we know you'll enjoy reading them from week to week.

Our prayer request here at Adventure Headquarters remains the same, even as we begin leading the trips that are ahead, and that is specifically for God's hand to lead each and every endeavor. After all, it's ALL for His glory anyway, isn't it?

Mrs. Henriksen's Marine Science Classes 

It's official! I have contracted with Bright Ideas Press as the new home for my on-line classes, beginning in the Fall of 2017! Don't worry if you don't see anything now, great things are COMING SOON! And what an awesome team they are busy assembling! So many teachers you know and have grown to love! I'm blessed to be a part of it! I will be in touch with all of you early this summer (through this e-mail list) to share the details on how to register for my Fall classes. My goal going forward includes offering the same great trips & courses that you've heard so much about in the past and grown to love!

With LIVE on-location broadcasts, special guest visitors and yes, even some virtual GLOBE trotting! 🙂 I'm already looking forward to having my marine science students traveling "virtually" with me again, all over the planet as we study the wonders of God's creation first hand!

Make no mistake...

God most definitely HAS a plan for all of us and we are excited to see it unfold! I am confident that it will surely be an ADVENTURE worth taking!

Thanks for hanging in there with me! Now let's get out there and start Adventuring together!
