About Us

Called Beyond works to provide outdoor adventures to children that have been impacted by disability, illness, loss, or other challenges.


Called beyond seeks to share the value of life, family, and creation through taking families impacted by disability, illness, loss, or other challenges on outdoor adventures. Their stories will be shared in order to inspire, encourage, and bring hope to a watching world. Called Beyond works with volunteers, organizations and through donors to change lives and make dreams come true.

Rinella Family

The Rinella’s

The Rinella’s have a passion for God, family and the outdoors, and a desire to share that passion with others. They raise their family in the West, hunting, fishing and spending as much time in the mountains as possible.

Jesse has always been up for a challenge when it comes to getting others into the field. Whether bear hunting with a 2-month-old on his back or taking his 93-year-old grandmother ice-fishing, his heart for others drives him to overcome any obstacle and his heart for sharing creation drives him to the top.

Aby writes and speaks on family in the field for both the homeschool community and the outdoor industry; writing for a variety of publications and organizations.

The Rinella’s have a deep desire to take the passions, opportunities and dreams they have been given and bless others.

It was out of this that Called Beyond was born.

You can find the Rinella’s at Calledtothetop.com.

The Carlsons

Living in western Montana, Brett and Emily are raising two adventurous boys while running their own graphic design business as well as helping family build a farm. The Carlsons are always eager to get outside whenever possible and make it their focus to keep God at the center of all they do.

The Carlson’s are blessed to be a part of the Called Beyond Adventures team in supporting the wonderful families that get to share these amazing opportunities together.

The Knowles

Tayt and Emily are college sweethearts that have built a life of adventure together, founded on their faith.

Tayt was raised hunting and fishing and his passion has only grown in the last 2 decades as he has passed that tradition down to their children, who both enjoy the majesty of God’s creation through spending time in the wilderness.

Their son was born with a rare condition called “T.A.R. Syndrome.”  (Thrombocytopenia Absent Radius)

He is missing radius arm bones and has a blood disorder. His rare syndrome does not stop the Knowles family from enjoying God’s creation together, making memories and growing closer to Him; it only fuels their passion for the value of life and sharing the One who gives it.

Recently, the Knowles walked through the process of modifying their son’s rifle to fit his unique needs so that he can step into the field with confidence and excitement!

The Knowles are honored to serve Called Beyond. Both Tayt and Emily have years of experience with non-profit organizations and look forward to being members of the Called Beyond team,  glorifying God’s kingdom.
