You’re invited

As a brother and friend, I would like to invite you to listen to the following video... and then to join us in Sisters Oregon for a Wild at Heart Boot Camp. Check this out: https://youtu.be/gj5l40vcOPk

In the movie, The Hobbit, Bilbo asks Gandalf about the adventure before him, “Will I come back?” and Gandalf answers, “if you do, you will not be the same hobbit”.

We’d love for you to join us, and more importantly, come to engage God. “If you do, you will not be the same man.” He will not disappoint. We have limited openings for an epic event, so sign up today!

Why do I need BASIC?

A man needs a deeper understanding of why these longings govern him - and why God made him just like that. And he needs a deeper understanding of why women long to be fought for, to be swept up into adventure, and to be the beauty.

What if? What if those deep desires in our hearts are telling us the truth, revealing to us the lives we were meant to live? God gave us eyes so that we might see; he gave us ears that we might hear; he gave us wills that we might choose; and he gave us hearts that we might live. The way we handle the heart is everything. A man must know he is powerful; he must know he has what it takes.

This is not a retreat about the “seven things a man ought to do to be a nicer guy.” It is a four-day quest into the recovery of a man’s masculine soul, the release of a man’s heart—his passions and his true nature—all given him by God. It’s an invitation to rush the fields at Bannockburn, to go West, to leap from the falls and save the beauty. For if a man is going to know who he truly is as a man, if he is going to find a life worth living, love a woman deeply, and not pass on his confusion to his children, he simply must get his heart back.
