Journey to the Heart

Experience the Reality of God

Are you tired of a nominal Christian life where you just go through the motions but don’t really experience vibrant fellowship with the Lord? Does your heart long for a deeper relationship with the Lord and to live a life sold out to Him? Consider coming on a Journey to the Heart to experience the reality of Who God is in a way like you may never have before!

What will I learn at the journey?

Five Foundations

During the Journey you will go through the Journey to the Heart workbook. This revised workbook is divided up in two sections. One section discusses vital and foundational truths of the Christian life like Biblical meditation, our view of God, Christ in us, ect.


Your View of God

What do you really believe about God?


It’s a Relationship

A relationship with God that’s real, not just religious


Christ in You

You’ll never be able to live the Christian life through your own efforts



Getting to know God personally


God’s Eternal Purpose

The big picture: the high call of God over all of mankind

Seven Heart Conditions

The other section of the workbook covers various heart conditions that we can have. It looks at both the negative heart conditions that we can have as well as the positive heart conditions that God can work in our lives as we seek Him.

  • Deceitful Heart vs. Sound Heart
  • Fearful Heart vs. Believing Heart
  • Murmuring Heart vs. Meek Heart
  • Prideful Heart vs. Humble Heart
  • Profane Heart vs. Holy Heart
  • Adulterous Heart vs. Stedfast Heart

What Journey alumni are saying:

“Journey to the Heart was a fantastic experience and blessing for me personally. It was wonderful to take a whole week to spend focusing on God with other inspiring young people. We laughed, we sang, we learnt, we were challenged we prayed, we grew spiritually and God worked in all of our lives.”
“One of the greatest areas I grew in was coming to realize the power of Christ living in me. Instead of just me in my flesh trying to overcome sin or issues in my life that I struggled with, I came to the realization that Christ is the power that enables me to overcome sin and live the impossible Christian life. God is so amazing to continue leading us along, and He used the Journey to the Heart to greatly bless me and lead me closer to Him!”
“When I heard about Journey to the Heart, I was a little hesitant. Would this really help me draw closer to God? I decided to give it a try. In that week, I experienced closeness with my Heavenly Father in a way I never had before! I realized that my focus had been on serving God, but I had never taken time to get to know him. During my  journey, I was able to take time to be alone with God, and experience his presence in an amazing way!”
“Attending Journey to the Heart was a turning point in my walk with the Lord.”
“During Journey, I was able to meditate and pray like I’ve never done before. God drew me to Himself and I felt closer to Him than I than I have been for a long time. He revealed Himself to me in ways I never dreamed possible… It was an undeniably unforgettable time.”
