Jimmy Sites

Jimmy's inspiration to start Spiritual Outdoor Adventures was fulfilled in 2002, when the first episode aired. Over the years, there have been hundreds of adventures, celebrations, and so much growth. 

We now see him as our fearless leader who never stops working, always has great ideas, brings joy to the office, leads the staff prayerfully, and loves to share funny stories and terrible dad jokes. Be sure to keep up with Spiritual Outdoor Adventures to see what Jimmy may be up to next!

 Amanda Sites
Artist/Chef/Lodge Mother

Amanda has been Jimmy's support system and loving wife since 1984. In the world of SOA, she wears many hats. You can find her behind the scenes recording voiceovers, hosting guests with her southern hospitality, and painting animations for the shows from suns to Sasquatches. 

You can also find her in front of the camera where she co-hosts shows, shares her recipes, and goes on adventurous hunts. We're thankful to have a great cheerleader and Jill of all trades on our team!
 Don Belles
Don has been bowhunting for 55 years and filming for Spiritual Outdoor Adventures for nearly 20 years.  Jimmy refers to Don as his veteran cameraman.

He has retired several times, but still comes out on occasion to shoot for Jimmy, especially on bowhunts.  Don has been known to tap Jimmy on the head with an arrow to express his displeasure when Jimmy mentions "gun hunts".
 Kevin Shamblin
Kevin met Jimmy in 2010 at a fundraiser and thought it would be fun to edit for Spiritual Outdoor Adventures one day. In 2018, he started working in the office as our editor. He and his wonderful wife Kelly live on their farm with chickens, a couple cats, and a German Shepherd. 

They also own a vibrant lavender business. On the weekends, you can catch him at farmers markets, trout fishing, or searching for Big Foot, aka Folk Monster, Wild Man, etc.
 Christin Sites
It’s no surprise after being raised in the Sites household that Christin found a passion for adventure and video. She pursued her passion for video by graduating from film school and has since been able to shoot numerous episodes of SOA.

Throughout her years she has been able to build up a very high tolerance for terrible dad jokes.

Our History

Spiritual Outdoor Adventures is, and always will be, about teaching and sharing the Good News of Jesus Christ. To achieve this, we endeavor to help others grow in Christian faith through exploring the love of the outdoors and the wonder of God's creation. 

In 2016, Jimmy gave Christian Sportsman magazine an interview where he shares his journey of launching Spiritual Outdoor Adventures (SOA) and how a Christian sportsman's faith and vision can impact the outdoor community. Of all of the interviews that Jimmy has granted, this is the most comprehensive regarding our history.
