The yearning for a battle to fight, an adventure to live, and a beauty to rescue
Our hope is to change the face of Christianity. Our desires are to recover the treasure of the Gospel, transform the lives of men and women, teach men and women to walk with God, while living it ourselves, equip men to rescue others, provide ongoing nourishment
and show the way to new wineskins
WHAT IS BASIC?
Wild at Heart BASIC is Wild at Heart experience led by John Eldredge and his team through, video session in North Dakota.
WHY DO I NEED BASIC?
Why Do I Need Wild At Heart 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.
"Over the past year, I have become a strong supporter of the message of restoring and building men in Biblical masculinity that John Eldredge delivers. In hopes of growing as a man of God, I felt called to seek out a Basic. I am from Montana and found myself choosing to go to the North Dakota Wild at Heart retreat. Going in, I did not know what to expect yet was blown away by the end of the retreat. The team facilitating was devoted to giving you a great experience and guiding spiritually when needed. Great location at a ministry camp in the beautiful Badlands, great food, and fun activities made the retreat a blast. Thank you to the North Dakota team for facilitating a space where we can band as brothers and as individual men to be guided on healing our masculine hearts and come closer to God."
