We recently organised our very first Captivating Women’s retreat here in SA and how wonderful it was. As one of the few men being allowed to participate at these retreats, I can say it is always a very special and humbling experience to see what God is doing in the hearts of his courageous beauties.
There was so much restoration, affirmation and goodness shared that made this experience a real blessing for those attending. The stories shared with us is just amazing and such a testimony to God’s never-changing, loving heart towards those who seek him.
As our men’s retreat is just around the corner, I would like to share with you what you can expect if you were to register and come along with us. What we offer is simply this:
The Gospel and what it has to offer you, as a man.
I am fully aware that this might sound a little elementary, as many of you have been acquainted with this message for a long time, right? But the question that has the power to transform your life is this: Have you found a way that enables you to break free from the frustrations, anger, anxiety or sadness that have secretly been an issue for your life? Have you found the means to overcome the pull towards addictions or the things you know are not good for your heart? And are you able to fight for the hearts of the women and children in your life? And what about your own heart?
A Made For More retreat is focussed on all that God wants to give you as his son. And before you read on, please sit on that single thought for a moment…
God, the creator of heaven and earth, your true father, wants to be precisely that: Your true father!
The weekend is more like a treasure hunt than a conference and the goal is to help you uncover that crucial bit of information that will enable you to overcome all of the stuff that has been keeping you from becoming your true self.
And so the intention of Made For More is for you to experience that which is most important to you and you alone. This might be the restoration of your heart, clarity for things in your life, freedom from worries or insecurity or anything else that God wants to address.
And so, if the offer is the Gospel, then the Gospel must offer life.
And this can be done! Not through tip & techniques or the 7 principles to find a better life, no, what your heart needs above all else is an authentic, genuine and real experience with the one person who knows who you really are; God!
And oh man! How we need to experience this for ourselves. Just the stories of the women last week is enough to make you long for it. Many have already said that they can’t wait until the next event. I would say only this; “Now it’s your turn”
