The Team

The team creating the three day Freedom Weekend – this journey into freedom – is a group of men from the Chattanooga, TN/North Georgia area drawn together by the message of Life and Freedom in Christ. We have all been impacted uniquely through Wild at Heart … and now our passion is to bring this impact into your world.

We are convinced that God wants to awaken the hearts of men, show them the path of Life and teach them how to fight for their own freedom and for the freedom of others in their lives and live a life of adventure.

Putting together an experience of this magnitude takes the efforts of many good men. All of the men serving on the team are volunteers and have been walking in this message with each other, and bringing this message to other men through various studies and events.

Please join us and experience what it feels like to have a heart that is truly alive. You will never be the same.
