Life to the Limit 2018

What does it look like to be a man who is ALIVE, FREE and TRUE?

“Life to the Limit” isn’t just another men’s retreat.  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 and/or guilt.  Not “Life to The Limit.” This weekend is an honest, no-BS trek into the deep passions and desires of a man’s heart, the healing of the wounds he’s taken in this battle, the realm of fatherhood and sex and God and calling—life as it was meant to be lived – abundant and true. “Life to the Limit” is based on John Eldridge’s book Wild at Heart. Through the sessions, times of quiet reflection, movies, adventures and downtime, you will discover something profound about the heart of God and the heart he gave you as a man.

Here is what some of the men had to say about Life to the Limit:

“This weekend I received confirmation that His Love is not words on paper, but the Word of God is alive that His purpose in my life and my life was not an accident or series of unfortunate circumstances but purposely preordained by our Father…this weekend I was touched deeply by our Father’s Love…I felt for the first time in my life the healing power of His Grace and the Freedom for which He passionately ransomed His heart, life, and body of His son for us on the cross! Again. Thank you and may God our Father bless you eternally for your gifts and prayers.”  – David

“I knew coming into this event that I had plenty of problems. I would readily admit that I was stubborn, bossy, and rude. I just wrote those traits off as “part of my personality.” Listening to you guys discuss the wounds we all carry, the expressions of those wounds in our lives, and the remedy there is in letting God Father heal us has been a tremendous eye-opener. I now realize that I’m not broken because of some unchangeable personality trait, but rather I’m’ fixably wounded and primed for God’s healing.”  – Anonymous

“An experience of tremendous enlightenment of a man’s journey in life provided in a professional and heart touching manner amongst a brotherhood of individuals who will leave you with a greater understanding of the Father Son and Holy spirit. Well done my friends, well done!” – Hugh

“I am an orthopedic surgeon and have attained probably any material thing I’ve ever wanted. But that was my validation.  I always know it was not but sought validation through worldly things. God opened my eyes and my heart to him in a way He has not before.” – Rob

“I read about the retreat and decided not to attend. You see, I had been very involved in ministry, specifically men’s ministry, but I had been “taken out” of the game – I had checked out, given up! Someone gave me the retreat as a gift. I feel energized and need to get off the bench, ready to get back in the game, back in the battle as a warrior!” – Todd

“As the least evolved Christian man at this retreat (I think), I was not expecting the message to resonate so deeply. I met and I will keep in touch with men I didn’t know prior to this. The ultimate realization, I must walk the path to being a better man…through God.” – Derek

“I’ve gone to church all my life. I’ve read the Bible cover to cover, and The Purpose Driven Life (twice). This weekend took me deeper into what it means to be a man than I could’ve imagined. I’m closer to other men and to Jesus My Father than ever. I am Free!” – Greg

“This weekend provided a long overdue look inside and will be something that I lean on for a long time to come.” – Elliott

“Please tell the sponsors, leadership, intercessors, all involved, etc, that this gathering helped heal my brokenness. I am a survivor…no, a conqueror! As Paul exclaimed…we are more than conquerors in Christ Jesus and nothing can separate us from the love of God, Our Father. I am a survivor…no, a conqueror of sexual abuse. I was 8 and it nearly cost me my life. I am now a married man, father of two sons, and this weekend will “echo through eternity” in my and others’ lives.” – Anonymous

“This weekend really made me think about how I am fathering my sons, especially my 10th grader, as he is the last one home with my wife and me. Hearing the talks and interacting with other guys going through similar challenges in life was truly an invaluable experience. I am deeply grateful to everyone who helped make this weekend possible.”– Paul

“I’ve attended many men’s retreats over the last 15 years and this was by far the best retreat I ever attended. The message, the place, and the take away were all far beyond my expectation.” – Scott

“This event was life changing and has potential to make me not just survive but thrive in life. ‘It is best explained that turning over and shining light on my wounds I was also able to see my strengths they’d hid.’ I cannot explain in one page the power of the type of experience.” – Ned

“This experience was rewarding for me as I always strive for time for personal reflection and thought. It always results in the questions, Why am I here? What is my purpose in life? This experience has opened a door for me to continue to explore and answer these questions. I have tried many ways to answer these questions except fully committing to the Father. It’s time to take the next step!” – Anonymous 

“Great experience – really brought to light what specific things/issues I need Him to help me correct.” – Anonymous

“The weekend opened up questions that I assume will take a lifetime to answer. Just a first step in a new life…” – Anonymous

“This event is a life changer. God opened my eyes to issues I didn’t even know existed and helped me find the root. This is just the first step in a journey, hopefully more men will embark on.” – Kevin

“This weekend was about a journey back through your life from the beginning, a true revelation about where and who you’ve been and an evaluation about who and where you are now. I see where I’ve been hurt, where I’ve been led and have a new idea where to go now. God has revealed where He has been with me and how He will lead me now if I let Him. I intend to let Him do so.” – Wood 

“I have been a sold out believer for many years. God continues to reveal himself to me allowing my soul to know Him deeper profound and fundamental ways. This weekend has strengthened and encouraged my life in the hard and given me a new sense of mission.” – John

“It will take a week or more to unpack all that happened here with my wife, so I can’t say there in one minute, but I leave her with a fire in my heart to finish strong, and finish together with my heavenly Father and my bride.” – Anonymous

“Growing up in a divorced home and later with an abusive father caused a lot of pain in my life that I was unaware of. This retreat helped me identify wounds and how to find healing. Thank you!” – Shane
