YBL Birmingham Welcomes Eric Alexander
November 16, 2020 @ 7:00 pm - 8:15 pm
What Mountain are You Climbing?
Come join YBL & Briarwood Church as we hear Eric Alexander, a professional climber and author, share about the victory we can find in helping others succeed. Eric has climbed the highest peaks on all seven continents, a feat known as the “Seven Summits”.
More remarkably, in 2001 he helped his friend, Eric Weinheimer, become the first blind man to climb Mt. Everest. He has since helped Eric summit several other “highest” peaks and has authored a book, The Summit, which shares some of the lessons learned on their trips.
Today, Eric teaches disabled skiers in Vail, Colorado, and directs Adventures Beyond Limits, an organization that educates and encourages youth with disabilities in the outdoors. We hope you will join us as we learn more about how to overcome our limits together.
