True growth and healing begin when we learn how to engage with our desires to live fully, contribute significantly, and create space for others to do the same. These God-given desires manifest differently in each of us, and can often expose the most vulnerable parts of our being, because at the core, our unique desires reveal what it is we truly hope for in the future. In order to see our desires come to life, we need support to express them and the courage to chase after them.
WHAT: One-day immersive seminar exploring how to courageously connect with the desires of your heart, and how living from these desires can change the course of your life and those you love the most. This experience has been designed for men of all ages to rediscover more of how they were made to relate to God, themselves and others. Limited to 50 participants.
