Adventures of the Heart is about helping men learn to live from their hearts so they can live from their God given desires and passions, discover the unique call of Christ on their lives, and engage in God’s great battle of reaching people with the message of grace and forgiveness found in Jesus Christ.
This mission is vital because men in our culture, including Christian men, men have distanced themselves from their hearts and lost touch with their souls, their passions, their call from God, and the incredible adventure God offers. As a result, men often find themselves living out of duty, “have-to’s” and “oughts and shoulds” which leads to them feeling bored, tired, and burned out on church and the spiritual dimension of their lives. Learning to live from the heart involves men understanding their true identities in Jesus Christ, receiving God’s lavish love for them in Christ, and embracing their God-given longing for real adventure in their lives. It’s about discovering that life is a journey, and a battle, and that God invites men to ally with Him in His larger adventure of setting people free in His son Jesus Christ.
As a man learns to live from his heart he then begins to live as God intended. We want to help men answer this question: “Don’t ask yourself what the world needs. Ask yourself what makes you come alive, and go do that, because what the world needs is people who have come alive.” We believe that Jesus Christ came with that very purpose in view—to heal our hearts and set us free. (Luke 4:15-21)
