Event Description:
In order for a man to get his heart back, he’s got to take a journey.  One that involves risk, danger, and a point of no return.  Wild at Heart Boot Camp, lead by John Eldredge, author of Wild at Heart, and the Wild at Heart Team, is a four-day quest into the recovery of the masculine soul. Through teaching sessions that go deep into the message of Wild at Heart, guided times of personal reflection, and optional adventures, Boot Camp is more than a retreat – it is an expedition of the heart.  You will never be the same.

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, Boot Camp cannot be viewed as a Father/Son event.  We strongly encourage fathers and sons to attend, but they will need to participate in different Boot Camps, at least for each of their first experiences of this retreat.  Due to the nature and depth of the content and experience, Wild at Heart Boot Camp is not designed for youth.  You must have completed high school or be at least eighteen years of age to enter the lottery.


Registering a Group:
Ransomed Heart is a message ministry with an emphasis on discipling leaders of men and women in this message.  Our intent is to offer training to a few leaders 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 across the nation led by these men.  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. 


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 training strategy for your band of brothers, your church, and your region.  Have only your top 2-5 key leaders enter the lottery.
