Peak 7 Annual Report 2017
It has been an incredible 12 years and I am grateful for the opportunity I have had with this amazing organization. The past several years have come with major challenges within my family. With these changes and my children growing up, my priorities have shifted. My time as a father will always be the most important responsibility I have. Founding Peak 7 has been an incredible journey and I am thankful for all of you who have been a part of our growth. I informed the board this past fall that I would be stepping down. I will continue to support Peak 7 as a Board Member, donor, and volunteer. Thank you for your incredible partnership with Peak 7 in helping build tomorrow’s leaders through meaningful adventures in creation! I am excited to see Peak 7 grow and witness the impact it will have on young leaders and our communities under Lynn’s leadership.
To all our friends and the community of Peak 7 Adventures,
I fell in love with the mission of Peak 7 in 2008 as a volunteer and still deeply believe in this powerful and impactful mission. I am so thankful for Ryan’s 12 years of creativity and service. I take on this role knowing full well that I have much to learn, but I am confident that this is absolutely where God has called me to be. I look forward to this journey with all of you, continuing to serve our communities and impact youth for generations to come!

A Word from the Board
Peak 7 is excited about the ongoing growth, transition and evolution of our organization as we celebrate another record year of ministry. Thank you for collaborating with us to make this possible.
Last year we shared our search for a new Executive Director as Ryan Kerrigan transitioned to the role of Founder and President. Operations Director Lynn Smith was appointed as the interim Executive Director. After considering numerous individuals, we are beyond thrilled to announce that Lynn Smith will be our new permanent Executive Director. We have full confidence in Lynn and are excited about the strategic vision she possesses to lead us into the future.
While Ryan Kerrigan will always hold the title of Founder within our organization, he informed the board of his intention to resign as President of Peak 7. Ryan’s heart remains passionate to share Jesus with youth through outdoor adventure and will continue to serve Peak 7 as a board member and ambassador. His commitment and sacrifice to build and lead this organization has made an incredible impact that can never be fully known–thank you Ryan!
Our last transition to share is that after 8 years of service, our Chairwoman, Kiuk Lee will be retiring from the Board. We are thankful for the positive impact of Kiuk’s leadership in growing and transforming the Board. Assuming the role as the Chairman of the Board is Spokane attorney, John Harper who first joined Peak 7 in 2010 as a rock-climbing guide.
Thank you again for your support of Peak 7. Your prayers and financial support keeps all of us at Peak 7 energized and invigorated as we share the hope of Jesus with youth through the great outdoors. We ask for your continued support as we work towards increasing Peak 7’s impact and organizational sustainability this year and in years to come.
Peace and blessings to you!
On behalf of the entire Board of Trustees,
John Harper & Kiuk Lee
