Our Story

Pathway Collective was founded in 1998 as Pathway Ministries, with a vision to lead people to the intersection of adventure and spiritual formation. Brothers Scott and Mark Nesbitt developed an adventure camp in the beautiful green mountains of central Vermont.

Following the tragic death of Scott in 2000, Pathway ran a variety of programs: backpacking and canoe trips through New England, experiential retreats based on music, art and place in Chicago, and spiritual formation seminars for churches and organizations.

Our Values


We grow deeper through adventure.
