Something amazing and transforming happens when a man chooses to unplug from the craziness of his work, kid’s sporting events, mortgage payments, scheduled maintenance, and ESPN.  The True Pursuit team understands the importance of unplugging so we work hard to create an environment that is conducive to reconnecting with what is most important. God had something in mind when He created you. But your “true heart” has been lost or stolen or maybe even surrendered.

 

What if you had a chance to be in a place where you could escape the distractions?

What if in that place you could hear from God what He wants you to hear?

What if you had a chance to recover what has been stolen from you?

 

The True Pursuit Weekend is a four-day journey designed to help you recover your true heart.

 

 

Through teaching sessions, film clips, real stories from men that are in the journey, times of reflection and journaling, you will have a unique opportunity to reconnect with God and your true heart, to discover the life that has seemed so elusive, and to experience the freedom and life that Jesus has offered…John 10:10.

It's Real!
I came to my first True Pursuit weekend having lost any hope of finding a community of people - men - who had a desire to be transparent, real, and true to the way God made them. I grew up in the church and for a number of reasons was taught to "pose." And because I had become so good at I could spot it. What I experienced from the weekend from Pete and the men on his team was both realness and a challenge to the life Jesus intended. In fact, my response was, "This 'brotherhood' you speak of better not be bull crap!" Pete responded, "Try us out!" And I did. Four years later I am still part of a group of men who love God, love each other, having a growing understanding of how to love themselves and live out of their unique calling.

Incredibly Good Weekend
I've now been on three of these men's weekends and they are excellent. The teaching is insightful and just what I have needed to stimulate my prayer time. I have left each weekend with a revised and renewed sense of focus and mission that can be so difficult to maintain otherwise. I highly recommend this weekend!

A great, growing group of men
I have been going to events put on by the True Pursuit men since 2011 and it has been a pleasure to get to know them and learn their passion to see men come alive. The circle of men is on the smaller side but is growing as more men grow in their walk with God. What I love about this group of men is that there is a true sense of transparency and a desire to move past any conflicts that may rise up. They move past any division and move powerfully for God. I also love how Pete is engaging with area churches like Dexter United Methodist in bringing this message and modeling transparency to the church.

The Real Deal
With so many fake men out there it's hard to know when you can really trust someone to be the real deal. Pete Emhoff and his team are real. They selflessly and courageously fight for men. They create environments for you to come as you are, feel respected, and find the hope of becoming who you were meant to be.

Refocusing
I went on my first True Pursuit weekend 7 years ago and I still living out of the fruit of that weekend. All my experience with True Pursuit has been encouraging, convicting, and inspiring. I have learned a lot about my heavenly Father and finding freedom. I would highly recommend a True Pursuit weekend to anyone.

Restored my Passion
I had been spiritually and emotionally abused by churches, authority figures, and friends. I had made unhealthy agreements that had crippled me, my marriage and my family. Pete walked with me through those issues and showed me how I was the Broken and Beloved son. I have had my passion for life and men's ministry restored and am walking in a vibrant and growing relationship with Jesus. I continue to seek Pete's counsel and attend the fires as a component of my growing faith journey.

Impactful Weekend
This weekend offers so much insight into becoming the man God intended all of us to be personally. The value of going away and spending time with like minded men can only be realized through the experience. The leadership team and fellow men attending are an incredible group of men and each attendee feels welcomed and part of the groups mission.

Great Weekend with Great Men
I tried to put off going to this retreat for a few years and finally I broke down and attending. What an awesome decision it was from me. The quiet time, the connections, the interactions, the stories, everything was just what I needed for a bust in my relationship with Christ. I'm looking forward to making this an annual trip and can't wait to bring my son someday.

Awakening of my heart
I have benefited greatly from the ministry of True Pursuit in finding freedom from the chains of shame. I have come to understand more fully my place in the great battle for men's hearts. It is a privilege to walk with these guy's, helping other men find freedom. Lyle

A deeper walk with Christ
The men who run True Pursuit have shown me time and again what it is like to walk closely with God. I love their passion for pursuing God's larger story for us. I have been to 2 TP weekends and I intend to continue going on them and bringing those that will join me. The entire leadership group is solid. I love True Pursuit and I would encourage anyone wanting to connect with God in a real and intimate way to look into attending a weekend or connecting with True Pursuit.

True Pursuit
I have been with True Pursuit from the beginning. Through the years I have seen so many lives changed, including my own. God has used this ministry and community of men to literally grow me up into the man I am today, which is steadily closer to the man I was created to be.

Connecting with my Dad
I can't overstate the impact that True Pursuit has personally had on me. The TP weekend helped me to identify and further clarify my wound(s) and helped me to understand that taking my question to my wife, kids, and co-workers wasn't going to heal that wound. I'm daily being initiated, and TP helped me to understand that process unfolds. I finally am understanding how to view God as my Dad, despite my tremendous father wounds. Thanks so much to Jeff and the True Pursuit leadership team for making such a huge difference.

Life-changer
I have been twice, I found it to be a great place for men to have open, honest conversation. The True Pursuit team creates a great mix of scheduled sessions, activities and free time that all help to build your relationship with Christ. I would highly recommend the True Pursuit weekend if you are trying to be a better father, husband and overall man in Christ. Outside of these weekends, Pete continues his men's ministry weekly.

Vision
True Pursuit and their board have agreed to have Pete meet with guys from three other areas in the northeast to discuss a wider vision for weekend events/follow up/discipleship & healing. With the help of TP we have put on 4 weekends in Central NY and are following up with the men weekly to stay on the journey to freedom.
