One Heart Retreat

The One Heart Retreat is not like any other training we offer at YFC.   Rather, One Heart is like pushing “pause” in the middle of all that we do in order to align our hearts with God’s.  One Heart is the first element of the Leadership Blueprint (for many who pursue credentials) because of the high value we place on healthy spiritual leadership.  This overnight getaway has been designed to train our hearts for exclusive allegiance to Jesus, steadying our strong connection in Him so that we can bear much fruit.  One Heart positions leaders to fall more deeply in love with Jesus as they serve Him.

One Heart Retreats are held regionally and occur in the fall, just prior to the Regional Leadership Conferences. Check the dates and locations below. 

Cost:  $195, includes registration fee, meals and accommodations for one night.

Faculty: Jerry Wheeler, Teddi Pettee & Others

Prerequisites: None

Focus: Falling in love with Jesus
