NEXT Father's Heart Retreat

What is the Father’s Heart Men’s Retreat?

The Father’s Heart is an annual men’s gathering restoring spiritual sons to their Heavenly Father and helping them discover identity through Christ and encouragement in connection with fellow brothers.

Our identity as men is rooted in the Father’s heart. To be the men, fathers, husbands and sons we were created to be, we must know the Father and His heart toward us as sons. There is freedom, healing, peace and security in the Father’s heart. The Father’s heart restores brokeness and releases destiny into our lives.

This two day gathering frees men to be created sons in their Father’s image and releases hope for the journey. Make plans to be with us and discover the Father’s Heart for you…
