The Heart

The healing of your masculine soul is the one thing keeping you from becoming who you are meant to be. You will dive deep into those things that make you come alive and discover what God desires for your life.


Through teaching sessions combined with movie clips and personal stories, you will journey with us through subjects concerning the character of God, his heart and what he desires for your life.


During the weekend there will be time set apart for yourself, for friendship and for nature and reflection. You will be encouraged to seek his voice and get answers to your deepest questions.


We must have the humility to admit that we don’t have all the answers and the curiosity to find what is yet to be revealed to us.

The plan is to get you off-site by 12 noon. This means we need to ramp up the progress of you becoming who you were meant to be. We have two crucial sessions left: Sonship & What happens next? Sunday morning is something you will not soon forget because the key is intimacy with God. You will leave with an authentic experience and a longing for more- we guarantee it!

Facts about who we are- is precisely that- it is what the world sees. But if you would like to know, we love God, we are good friends, we are fathers and blessed with beautiful wives. We have a heart for Jesus’ restorative work and have a desire to share this with as many as we can.
