Brotherhood | Peace | Mission | Truth
Today we know that many of our returning veterans, the sons and daughters of our country, are hurting. Divorce, suicide and PTSD among veterans are at an all-time high. The separation, not fitting in and the lack of "mission" are leaving our veterans feeling lost. The effects of physical and emotional injuries have left many in pain and confusion not knowing what road to take to recovery.
Heroes Return is a 4-day journey of God-seeking, self-searching and spiritual training designed to unlock the pain and wounds that keep men from experiencing authentic and distinctive manhood. Veterans and first responders are surrounded by a "squad" of men who serve as "wingman" to each Hero. We create a setting where truth replaces lies and men are restored, healed and made whole.
Heroes Return is for any of our country's veterans and first responders, no matter where or when they served our nation and communities. It is a safe place where men can get free of guilt, shame and anger. Men get "off the grid," find camaraderie and answer the call to authentic manhood.
Covenant Church would like to honor all our veterans who have sacrificed to serve our country and uphold the values and freedoms that all Americans enjoy. We offer the Heroes Return to anyone who has served in any branch of the military, as well as those who serve as first responders such as police and firefighters.
If you are a women veteran or first responder, we invite you to participate in The Well – specifically designed for women. Please, email [email protected] for all the details.
