What is the ManAlive EXPEDITION?

Register Now

The ManAlive EXPEDITION isn’t just another men’s retreat.  That’s the last thing anybody needs. This experience is a raw, honest, no-BS journey into the deep desires and passions of your heart.

The reason most messages for men ultimately fail is simple: they ignore what is deep and true to a man’s heart. Instead, they try to shape him up through various forms of pressure and duty. If we’re honest with ourselves, we know this doesn’t work.

The ManAlive EXPEDITION is different. You’ll seek healing of the wounds you’ve taken in this battle. You’ll trek into the deep issues of fatherhood, sex, God, and your calling. You’ll chase after life as it was meant to be lived.

Through live sessions, times of reflection, movies, adventures and relaxation, you will discover something profound about the heart of God and the heart he gave you as a man. Those who come say it is one of the greatest weekends of their entire life.

Wild at Heart

The ManAlive EXPEDITION is based on themes from the book Wild at Heart by John Eldredge. If you haven’t read this book we highly recommend you get a printed or audio copy to start your journey.

It was hearing from the Father Himself those words of love–that he isn’t just “putting up with me” but that he loves me deeply.


It’s changed and continues to change me. Hearing from God allowed me the courage to begin to walk out a new life.

My life has been totally transformed by the boot camp experience. Experiencing myself as God’s beloved son has changed my marriage and how I interact with others. A band of brothers developed that’s been feeding my heart for over 8 years. I’ve actually learned to love God from my heart!

Boot Camp played a key part in restoring my walk with God to a deeper level than I ever knew possible, the results of which have positively affected my relationships with my wife and kids, and put me on the path to discovering my calling in life.

The event rocked my world as I knew it. My walk with God transformed over the days of the retreat. I can say this event has given me a inner peace and security in knowing what God thinks of me as a man. My Family noticed the transformation immediately. Not to mention the brotherhood of men that I have to continue to be accountable to.

Becoming a Real Man

One man tells his story about how the ManAlive EXPEDITION helped him on his journey to become a real man.

My Story

If you knew me 10 years ago, you would have known a man that looked successful on the outside. As the youngest district sales manager for a Japaneese technology company, I was making money and living the American Dream. I'd attended a Christian college, graduated with...

No Longer a Lone Ranger

I spent many years being the “Lone Ranger” thinking I had it all figured out. I didn’t need anyone’s help, and if I did I was less of a man. The ManAlive EXPEDITION showed me I was worthy of the Father’s  unconditional love and I don’t have to be alone.

For My Boys!

I wanted to learn, to practice and to pass along a warrior spirit for my legacy...my boys. Fetal position in the back of a semi-stranger’s car, frustrated, angry and lost in thoughts of WHY AM I HERE? WHAT AM I DOING? I was begrudgingly headed towards some “Bootcamp”...

I Found Myself

Before my first ManAlive Expedition, I was a man trying to find himself in religion. Funny thing was I didn’t grow up in church. After a decade of swimming in an alcoholic abyss, I finally found sobriety’s life boat alongside my wife. However, having just centered my life on God, I made this life boat holy and riddled with religiousity.

Healing For My Heart

In the Spring of 1999, I was worn out. In nearly every way. I was commuting to a job 3 hours away 3 days a week for over a year. The same year we self-contracted and built our house. But more than the physical exhaustion was the lack of true life. I had a wonderful...
