Outdoor Edge Ministries takes great outdoors activities like hunting and fishing and combines them with a solid message to provide activities that are both enjoyable and educational.

Skeet Shooting Events

Mike Scambray, a veteran skeet shooter and shooting instructor, and his team bring solid instruction together with a true message to help both young and old learn to shoot straight in life as well as on the range.

Sporting Clays

Somewhere between golf and skeet, sporting clays is an exciting outdoor sport that will challenge even the most experienced shooter. Fun for both youth and adult alike.

Sunday Morning Challenge

What do you think of when someone mentions the word "church"? Chances are, regardless what you are thinking right now, it's nothing like Church on the Range. Church on the range is a radical new approach to bringing God's word to those who enjoy the outdoors.

Welcome to Outdoor Edge Ministries


Do you love the outdoors?  Do you enjoy spending time with others who share your passion for outdoor activities such as hunting, fishing, and shooting sports?  If so, Outdoor Edge Ministries is just what you’ve been looking for.



What is Outdoor Edge Ministries?

                As the name implies, we are a faith based group, but don’t let that set your expectations.  Outdoor Edge Ministries specializes in outdoor and shooting sport related events for outdoor people like yourself, by outdoor people like yourself.   Under the direction of veteran outdoorsman and shooting instructor Mike Scambray, Outdoor Edge Ministries organizes events for groups of all ages and skill levels.  From challenging events for the experienced outdoorsman to instructional events for those interested in experiencing these activities for the first time, Outdoor Edge Ministries has it all and brings it together with simple truths that apply just as well in the field, on the range, and in our daily lives.



A little about our leader

Mike ScambrayMike Scambray, a veteran outdoorsman, has been in the hunting and fishing industry for over 35 years.  What began as a personal passion for the outdoors became more than a hobby in 1980 when he opened a custom boat shop.  Mike toured and taught in boat shows and outdoor events throughout the country doing promotional bass fishing seminars for major fishing tackle manufacturers in conjunction with local and regional bass clubs.  During this time he also organized and spoke in promotional videos working with people such as Billy and Bobby Murray; tackling such logistical challenges as building and transporting a floating “classroom” for teaching bass fishing. In 2004, Mike’s professional focus shifted to shooting sports, beginning with the organization, design and construction of a new skeet range addition to the local gun range.  An avid hunter and reloading enthusiast since childhood, Mike went on to become a certified firearm instructor with the DPS and NRA as well as a Hunter Education instructor for TP&W. 

In early 2000, Mike felt called to use this knowledge and experience in ministry.  In 2004 Life Outdoors ministries was formed in answer to this call.  In 2007 Mike also started a weekly radio program called "The Outdoor Edge" on a local American Family Radio station that ran every Saturday morning for 3 years.  In 2011, these ministries were brought together under the new name Outdoor Edge Ministries.


The Man behind it all

                Some might assume that Mike is the man behind it all, but the fact is (hold onto your seats folks, here comes that “Ministry” part again) Christ is the Man behind it all.  Outdoor Edge Ministries was started by a calling from God to use our love of the outdoors and outdoor activities to reach out to others with similar interests.  As people who enjoy hunting, fishing, or shooting; who hasn’t shared with others a new product or technique that has improved your abilities?  Who hasn’t tried to pass their love of the outdoors on to others, especially the younger generation, in hopes of instilling in them the values and discipline that come with learning to fish, hunt, or handle a firearm safely?  In the same way, we have experienced the life changing work of Christ, and we want to share it with others.  You could say we’re Christians who love the outdoors or outdoorsmen who love Christ, but either way:  For us, the two go hand-in-hand.

Outdoor Edge Hunting Trips Available!



Hunting season is open and, here at Outdoor Edge Ministries, that means time spent in the great outdoors!  We'd love for you to join us.

We have a limited number of small group paid hunts planned for this season that are open to anyone.   Our high-fenced lease is in Duval county  (South Texas) Between Freer and Benavides.  These hunts are perfect for both fledgling hunters and seasoned veterans alike.  All the proceeds from these hunts go toward supporting the ministry and allowing us to provide hunts like these to disadvantaged youth, handicapped, wounded warriors and others free of charge.
