Walk into any church in America, take a look around, and ask yourself this question: What is a godly woman? Don't listen to what is said, listen to the lives of the women present. What do we learn? A godly woman is...tired. For all she has been told to be is a good servant. Hasn’t “you are here to serve” been the church’s message to women?
And what about her heart?
Set deep in the heart of every woman are three core desires. Every woman longs for romance, to play an irreplaceable role in a great adventure, and to be the beauty in the tale. It is for such that we were made.
Join us for our four-day event as we journey together into the deep mysteries of our feminine souls in order to recapture our hearts.
The lottery for this event will be held July 15-20. Please make a note on your calendar to enter the lottery on these dates. If you'd like to sign up for our weekly email updates, we send out a notice to this email list whenever we open the lottery.

What is Captivating?
In our unguarded and private moments, our longings for more rise to the surface. We want more life. More hope. More love. More healing. More of Jesus! We know we are made for more. But what we don’t need more of is information. We do not need more knowledge about Jesus; we need an encounter with him. That is what the Captivating Retreat is all about.
Jesus calls us saying, “Come away with me, my beloved.” (Song of Songs 2:10)
You are invited to come away and join us in the beauty of Colorado for a spacious time to go on a treasure hunt for the true heart of God and the unique, beautiful feminine heart that he has placed in you. Through teaching sessions, film clips, music, guided periods of reflection and journaling, worship and beauty, we're inviting you to take the risk of coming alive as a woman—God's captivating woman.
Because more is available.
Economy room is defined as one woman in each bed, meaning every top bunk and every bottom bunk filled (14 women per room)
Standard room is defined as a room at half occupancy, meaning if a woman in a Standard accommodation chooses a bottom bunk, then there will not be a woman in the top bunk (7 women per room)
Tuition for this event covers all costs for accommodations, meals, teaching and event supplies. It does not include transportation to and from the event.
Attendees are responsible for their own transportation.
We offer a shuttle service to and from Denver International Airport for an additional charge of $90 (round trip). If you are selected in the lottery, you will have the option to purchase a shuttle ticket, and additional shuttle details will be provided at that time.
Due to the intimate and personal nature of the content, Captivating cannot be viewed as a Mother/Daughter event. We strongly encourage mothers and daughters to attend, but they will need to participate in different events, at least for each of their first experiences of the retreat. Due to the nature and depth of the content and experience, Captivating is not designed for youth. You must have completed high school or be at least eighteen years of age to enter the lottery.
Unfortunately, this retreat is not designed to offer childcare, and it is not able to provide for nursing moms. We do pray that God would supernaturally provide for your children while you are away, and for nursing moms we pray with all our heart that Jesus would make a way for you to participate in a future retreat.
Wild Heart is a message ministry with an emphasis on discipling men and women in this message. Our intent is to offer training to equip them to go back to their communities to walk in the fullness of their strength, working to set hearts free. Our hope is that there will be countless Boot Camp and Captivating events across the nation led by these men and women.
Because we are only able to offer 2-3 events each year, we have to be increasingly strategic with group acceptance policies. Our intent is to achieve maximum impact with each event.
Therefore, the event lottery will not accept groups larger than 5, so that we can offer this message to a wider selection of people.
Please do not simply divide a large group into smaller groups of 5, as this is not the spirit of the strategy. We ask you to prayerfully evaluate your strategy for your band of sisters, your church, and your community.
