What's up next?

We're working on a spring retreat.  Check back!

With the 2019 release of Bert's book, X-Plan Parenting: Become your child's ally--A Guide to raising strong kids in a challenging world, we'll be planning some special events and retreats for parents.  Exciting times!

X-Plan Parenting: Become your child's ally - A guide to raising strong kids in a challenging world will be released by Simon & Schuster's Howard Books in early June, 2019.


Throughout the year, we lead group sessions, book discussions, camps, and retreats. Most of these events are free and open to anyone; some have nominal cost to cover expenses; and some are small groups with very limited spots to preserve an element of intimacy, honesty, and trust.

As a spirit-led body, we sometimes go months at a time without a clue about what's ahead as we wait patiently for our next mission to be revealed. 

But Jesus answered, “I tell you, if these become silent, the stones will cry out!”

​Luke 19:40

"I have seen God at work through this whole event."  -Colby from PA
