What Have You Done With Your Heart?

Brand New Heart Men’s Retreat – What is it?

What is it?

Brand New Heart Men’s Retreat isn’t just another men’s event. Honestly, that’s the last thing anybody needs. The reason most messages for men ultimately fail is simple – they ignore what is deep and true to a man’s heart, and try to shape him up through various forms of pressure. Not this retreat. This retreat is an honest, no crap journey into the deep passions and desires of a man’s heart, into the healing of the wounds he’s taken in this battle, into the realm of Fatherhood, God and calling – life as it was meant to be lived. Through the sessions, the times of quiet reflection, the movie clips, the adventures and the free time, you will discover something profound about the heart of God and the heart he gave you as a man. Some who have attended say that it is one of the greatest weekends of their entire life. Due to the nature and depth of the content and experience, these retreats are not designed for youth.  You must be at least 18 years of age to come along.  cross-106416_640This retreat cannot be viewed as a Father/Son event.  We strongly encourage fathers and sons to attend, but they will need to participate in different retreats, at least for each of their first experiences of this retreat.

Why come?

Jesus said: “Are you tired? Worn out? Burned out on religion? Come to me, get away with me and you’ll recover your life. I’ll show you how to take a real rest. Walk with me and work with me – watch how I do it. Learn the unforced rhythms of grace. I won’t lay anything heavy or ill-fitting on you. Keep company with me and you’ll learn to live freely and lightly” (Matthew 11:28-30, The Message)

Who is running this?

This event is being run by Brand New Heart Ministries – an organisation that seeks to help men and women discover and live out of the brand new heart given to them by Christ. The retreat is based on the book Wild at Heart by John Eldredge and the Wild at Heart Retreats run by his organisation – Ransomed Heart Ministries. We run a number of retreats each year and have a heart to work with men anywhere in New Zealand to host a retreat in their region.

What do people say about it?

“I feel that the retreat definitely has re-awakened my heart. I’ve been seriously challenged and encouraged over the weekend. My body was physically knackered, but my spirit and soul are soaring! One of the big things that I took from the weekend is how great the impact is that we as fathers have on our children, and on our spouses. I am so much more aware that my words and action have the ability to affirm, but also to wound. I’m looking forward to all that God has in store for in the days, weeks, months and years ahead” – Kerrie
