There is a longing in every man for a battle to fight, an adventure to live, and a beauty to rescue.  And there's a reason God put that longing in our hearts.  Based on the masculine journey outlined in "Wild at Heart" by John Eldredge, this weekend will be made up of teaching sessions led by Eldredge and his team via video, fun, restorative recreation, and great food and conversations in a safe place. Come away and do something good for your heart. Join us for four days that will change the rest of your days....

Retreat Info for Registrants 

This weekend is set up like a personal journey you’ll take to “get your heart back” so you can begin living the life, as a man, that God designed you for.  You won’t hear a typical “Here’s what a real man looks like…try harder!” kind of message.  Instead you will hear what’s already true about you that Jesus came to RESTORE.  With that said, come curious and hungry.  As  way of “priming the pump” I recommend watching the seven 18-20 videos (one a day?) found at between now and the retreat.



You will be staying in rooms that have their own bathroom and shower and include bedding and towels, but you are welcome to bring your own pillow, sheets, etc. if desired.  



All meals will be provided beginning with Thursday’s dinner at 6:00PM and ending with Sunday’s breakfast.  Please bring your own snacks.  If you have dietary restrictions, please bring what you will need for the weekend.
