Then Jesus was led up by the Spirit into the wilderness. (Matthew 4:1)
Immediately the Spirit drove Him into the wilderness. And He was there in the wilderness. (Mark 1:12-13)
God does His deepest work in the wilderness. Even in the life of Christ, He was sent into the wilderness to battle Satan and encounter the reality of God as Father. From Jacob to David to Jesus, we see God doing His deepest heart work in the wilderness. Wilderness Encounter is a three-day journey into the wilderness of the Rocky Mountains to discover the deepest needs of a man’s heart.
Men were made to wrestle with God, battle with Satan, and passionately worship God in the wilderness—both geographically and spiritually. Until the cell phones are cut off, deadlines left behind, and the noise of work silenced, most of us can’t hear from God and listen to the echoes of our soul. It is our desire that Wilderness Encounter will challenge men to find their hearts through a robust and strenuous wilderness environment.
