Allies and Networks

Here is a list of our allies and organizations we think you’ll want to check out:

Hearts Alive & Free Something important happens when a man unplugs from the world of work, cell phones, ESPN, and the Wall Street Journal. The Hearts Alive & Free weekend is a time for you to get away from the craziness of life so you can rediscover what God intended when He created you as a man in His image (Genesis 1:27).

Heart of the Warrior Very similar to Hearts Alive & Free, but in the UP of Michigan.

Ransomed Heart Ministries The mission of Ransomed Heart Ministries is recover the treasure of the Gospel, transform the lives of men and women, and teach them to walk with God. Ransomed Heart offers Wild at Heart retreats for men and Captivating Retreats for women in the mountains of Colorado.

Training Ground is a multi-week journey to guide you in the process of initiation into manhood. Through Work, Wilderness adventures, and Worship, you will become the man God created you to be in the mountains of Colorado. This is based in Colorado Springs, CO, but it is my recommended place for West Michigan guys 18-25 years old to go for the ultimate in initiation into true authentic masculinity. And then to return to West Michigan in the full strength of a man of God and serve here.
