For Men. Located in Brevard, NC at one of Young Life's newest properties... Why do men come? Lots of reasons. But the Primary Reason that Men are willing to invest the time, energy and money to attend is they want More LIFE. Everybody seems to promise More LIFE (ever watched any informercial?).
But if you remember, Eden is closed. When Adam chose Eve over God, they were barred from the Garden. God left 'a flaming sword which turned every way, to guard the way to the tree of life'. We're not getting back in... and yet something in our deep hearts keeps searching for what Eden represented.
And why is it the ACTS 3 Boot Camp?
19 Repent therefore and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out, so that times of refreshing may come from the presence of the Lord, 20 and that He may send Jesus Christ, who was preached to you before, 21 whom heaven must receive until the times of restoration of all things, which God has spoken by the mouth of all His holy prophets since the world began.
This 'RESTORATION of all things' (in ACTS 3) speaks to us of God's better way. Yes, a better home; better agreement; better destination is what God is calling us to... As C.S. Lewis wrote, “For God is not merely mending, not simply restoring a status quo. Redeemed humanity is to be something more glorious than unfallen humanity.” ~
So we will be exploring the Hope of the Coming Kingdom. It MUST be central to our Hope for More. Jesus insists that we are to 'seek first' this Kingdom. And in His model prayer, he instructs us to declare something powerfully stunning: "Kingdom of God, Come! Will of God, Be Done... on earth just as it is in heaven."
The Kingdom of God is certainly a Mystery. It is safe to say that the 46 parables that Jesus told are all - in some way or another - his 'bait' to draw us to ask Him MORE about this Kingdom. Come and Join Us!
