EXPLORATION: A Calling Intensive
During the calling intensive weekend you will DO what you learned in the calling retreat (It’s Your Call). By the end of the weekend you will be Alert & Oriented x 3 to your story, desires and journey – as explained in the first session of the calling retreat. You will be given several exploration assignment that you will complete before the retreat and that you will go through in your group. It is absolutely amazing what your heart reveals through these exercises and the insights others will have about your calling and journey. This is a total involvement retreat.
You will be more known, more encouraged and more aware than ever before. You will have learned more about how to interpret your heart, the hearts of others and the voice of God. This event has been a turning point, a decisive moment for many throughout the years.
The calling intensive, which begins Friday evening and ends Sunday afternoon, builds on the material taught in the calling retreat, therefore it is a prerequisite for this event.

What Others Are Saying:
“This weekend was maybe the most amazing experience of my life. I felt joy when I was married and I was thrilled when my son was born. But I felt that my future was born during this retreat. My life now has a meaning that was missing. Words really cannot express how much this retreat meant to me but I hope that my life going forward will paint a picture that words alone cannot capture of how my life was changed over three days at the “It’s Your Call” retreat.”
“Gary said throughout the weekend that this is going to be amazing and it was!”
“Stories were told, desires unveiled, journeys clarified, the enemy exposed and each person’s Glory acknowledged, affirmed and deepened. I personally gained so much clarity in my own life in each of those areas it truly was amazing.”
“So often a retreat is a mountain top experience that pumps you up for several weeks, and then life goes back to normal. The Calling Intensive went much deeper than that by equipping me to live out of the true, God given desires of my heart.”
“In the group I was part of, we all stepped into this thing as strangers, but we walked away brothers. I’m amazed at how freeing it was to listen to the stories of other men, and realize I’m not alone. The way the weekend was structured & how we were able to cover so much ground was impressive… How can so much be accomplished in one short weekend?”
“This helped me to identify the areas of my heart I need to look at – real desires and blockages.“
“A wonderful orientating weekend!”
“There was lots of confirmation of what God has been journeying me through, lots of connecting the dots that I’ve been collecting over the years. The feedback was so helpful, encouraging, challenging and appropriate.”
“I feel God has let me see a lot of things in my life with new eyes and for what they truly are.”
“I was surprised that helping other men to understand their calling, helped me to know myself better as well. I enjoyed the hands-on nature of the exercises, and they were effective in unwrapping our real selves from the outer shell we present to people. It was a great weekend, and I recommend it highly.”
