Pure Heart Retreat

Join us for a weekend in the Blue Ridge Mountains for the Pure Heart Retreat with Tom and Donna Cole


God longs for us to know Him, and He wants to heal the wounds in our hearts. You may find it difficult to receive love from God or from others because of past pain, abuse, or neglect, but desire to go deeper into the Lord’s heart.

Tom and Donna will lead us through an impactful weekend of healing and restoration.

You will discover God’s abiding affections toward you and explore His promises over you. As you seek Him for healing, may He restore your heart to wholeness and fulfill the promises of blessing in your life.

Everyone can find freedom and wholeness at the Pure Heart Retreat!

Pure Heart addresses the wounds that are common to most of us and helps us recognize our need for God and others.

  • We look at the essential and life-forming relationships of our parents.
  • We address shame and how it keeps us hidden and broken.
  • We look at the importance of understanding God’s will and intention to us as image-bearers of God through our femininity and masculinity, as men and women.
  • We lead people through forgiving those who have wounded and broken them, as well as forgiving themselves.
  • We address how God made each of us unique and a precious expression of the image of God.

Whether you have a specific wounding, have difficulty navigating life, struggle with strongholds, addictions, or sexual brokenness, or are just tired of shallow connections with others – Pure Heart is for you!
