The Heart of a Warrior Encounter Heartland- CANCELED

Thursday- Sunday AUGUST 20-23, 2020

Country Lake Retreat Center, Underwood, Indiana

The Heart of a Warrior Encounter Heartland at the beautiful Country Lake Christian Retreat Center in Underwood, Indiana is our weekend conference initiative designed to take a man into his deep heart and intimate encounters with God.

Time away with God is critical to healing, training… becoming more. Main conference themes align with material found in John Eldredge’s books, Robert Lewis’s Men’s Fraternity, Neil Anderson’s Victory Over the Darkness, and the teachings of C.S. Lewis, Dallas Willard, A.W. Tozer, and other great faculty members of our hearts … all created to take a man further up and further in- to the LIFE God offers.

During the weekend we have three main objectives: help a man get his heart back, teach him how to fight and show him where the battles are. To see Christ come for a man’s heart and what God is up to validating a man, initiating him and calling him into the larger story is truly a glorious thing. It is a fierce journey for every man, but one that desperately needs to be taken.

Join the squadrons of men who are hungry and thirsty for more—the Kingdom needs more men who know what it is to walk deeply with God. Come join us and be one of the men who is seeking and finding more … There is more!

This experience has stirred my heart and fired me up to live in the BIG STORY… I want more of this! God wants more of me. Thank you for your hearts and your obedience to the call.

I have to start off by saying that words can’t express the experience and impact this has had on my life…Ive got a lot to look at and walk with God in…I am so looking forward to what God has next and the rest of my journey. I now feel better equipped to live and walk with Him.
