What is Captivating?
In our unguarded and private moments, our longings for more rise to the surface. We want more life. More hope. More love. More healing. More of Jesus! We know we are made for more. But what we don’t need more of is information. We do not need more knowledge about Jesus; we need an encounter with him. That is what the Captivating Retreat is all about.
Jesus calls us saying, “Come away with me my beloved.” (Song of Songs 2:10)
You are invited to come away and join us in the beauty of the Colorado mountains for a spacious time to go on a treasure hunt for the true heart of God and the unique, beautiful feminine heart that he has placed in you. Through teaching sessions, films, music, guided periods of reflection and journaling, worship and beauty, we're inviting you to take the risk of coming alive as a woman—God's captivating woman.
Because more is available.

Why a Lottery?
We have chosen to use a lottery process because of high demand for our events. Demand exceeds supply. All economic laws are telling us "more" is the answer… charge more money…do more retreats… include more people! But God has entrusted us with a message—a message about the heart in which "more" is often heart-killing. We want you to experience these retreats (and most importantly experience your God in life-changing ways), but not at the cost of sacrificing the message we want you to experience. So, to better serve all of those interested in attending, we are using a lottery selection process.
Due to the intimate and personal nature of the content, Captivating cannot be viewed as a Mother/Daughter event. We strongly encourage mothers and daughters to attend, but they will need to participate in different events, at least for each of their first experiences of the retreat. Due to the nature and depth of the content and experience, Captivating is not designed for youth. You must have completed high school or be at least eighteen years of age to enter the lottery.
Unfortunately, this retreat is not designed to offer childcare, and it is not able to provide for nursing moms. We do pray that God would supernaturally provide for your children while you are away, and for nursing moms we pray with all our heart that Jesus would make a way for you to participate in a future retreat.
Registering a Group:
Ransomed Heart is a message ministry with an emphasis on discipling men and women in this message. Our intent is to offer training to equip them to go back to their communities to walk in the fullness of their strength, working to set hearts free. Our hope is that there will be countless Boot Camps and Captivatings across the nation led by these men and women.
Because we are only able to offer 2-3 events each year, we have to be increasingly strategic with group acceptance policies. Our intent is to achieve maximum impact with each event.
Therefore, the Event lottery will not accept groups larger than 5, so that we can offer this message to a wider selection of people.
Please do not simply divide a large group into groups of 5, as this is not the spirit of the strategy. We ask you to prayerfully evaluate your strategy for your band of sisters, your church, and your community.
Cancellation by Registrant
Full payment is required at the time your reservation is made for this event.

In the event that you cancel your registration less than 3 weeks prior to the date of the event, you will forfeit the entire registration fee. Regardless of when you cancel your registration, your registration is not transferable to another event, date, or person.
Participation of Stasi Eldredge
While it is our intent that Stasi Eldredge will participate in the event, if for any reason she is unable to participate, the event will most likely continue without her. However, we reserve the right to cancel the event should Stasi Eldredge's participation be prevented if we decide, in our sole discretion, that cancellation is necessary under the circumstances. If we do decide to cancel the event for any reason, we refund your full registration fee to you.
Cancellation by Ransomed Heart
If the event is made impossible by any act of God, war, earthquake, fire, strike, sickness, accident, epidemic, act of government, its agencies or officers, or any other legitimate cause beyond our control, we will cancel the event and will refund your full Ransomed Heart event registration fee to you.
