We are a national retreat organization providing structured weekends for story exploration, healing and freedom in men, women and co-ed environments. All of our facilitators have been trained at The Seattle School, by Dan Allender, Ph.D. Gen225 not only stands for the verse in Genesis, but the 'Gen' also stands for Generational impact. Our mission is to lead people to experience God in the story of their past, present, and future.
A Story Retreat: Brings deep restoration through exploration of a specific story in each persons life. Through the narrative approach of Dan Allender, Ph.D., we utilize men only, women only or co-ed story groups to bring truth to the surface. Because truth takes back ground that evil stole with whispered lies. (Limit of 20)
Recon Weekend/Unveiling: Come to know God more, listen to our hearts and engage honestly with others. Through this we find unexpected freedom. This is a safe place, one without judgment, interruption or advice-giving. (Limit of 24)
Wild at Heart Boot Camp/Captivating: Starting in 2017, we are excited to begin offering these weekends in East Tennessee. At both retreats, there is a central focus on the restoration of the heart. Satan came to steal, kill and destroy. So much has been lost. Slowly, but ever so surely, we've been falling asleep letting go of our dreams and desire. It's time to take back our most valuable treasure of all, our hearts. (Limit of 64)
Six Week Story Groups: Each person gets to explore two of their stories over six weeknights in a 4-5 person story group. This unique experience, currently only available in Knoxville, allows participants in between meetings, to experience how their specific stories impact their everyday life.
