Healing and Hope
Healing and Hope
A Biblical Foundation – Many individuals who come to our retreats express that they know scripture, but they desire a heart revelation that will enable them to live out what they know. Therefore, they want more than a new list of scriptural references. They need a life changing experience with some tools to walk out what they have received. The retreat experience has been well received by participants from a wide range of denominational backgrounds.
A Dependency upon Prayer – HFN is supported by an international prayer team who pray for retreats and conferences. During retreats, over 300 people pray for each participant by first name throughout the week. God has done amazing things through this prayer effort.
A Cognitive, Rational/Emotive Counseling Model – This is the primary psychological approach utilized in the “tool kit” offered by HFN. Biblically we find this in Romans 12:1,2 as a model to live by. This model has the following foundational structure:
Emphasis on Root Work – Our material and exercises are designed to help participants identify and deal with root issues rather than “weed whacking”! Root changes require spiritual healing that only God can bring. This is much more effective long-term than simply learning more about symptoms and behaviors that are destructive.
Equipping with Tools for Daily Living – In addition to the tools related to taking thoughts captive, the Intensive Retreat also helps participants in the areas of dealing with conflict and communicating more effectively. As participants discover who they are in Christ, they must also learn how to “walk” a new walk claiming their God-given inheritance.
Chapel/Worship – Each day begins and ends with a thirty minute “Chapel” time. The focus is always on the cross and its truths. The Chapel is presented in a creative way which encourages a fresh encounter with God. The Chapel format consists of a brief meditation, worship with various songs and time for reflection.
Innovative, Creative and Interactive Program – Every aspect of the program is interactive and requires not only hearing and experiencing new knowledge, but also applying it through various creative exercises. All learning modalities (seeing, hearing, doing, discovering…) are stimulated so that participants can “own” the material presented. From the seeker, to the mature believer—everyone is challenged to discover afresh the power of God’s love and truth.
An Intimate Setting – The maximum number of participants we take for each retreat is ten. There are innovative classroom sessions wherein the entire group participates. In order to facilitate quality time for working on “root issues,” we subdivide the large group into two or three smaller groups. Powerful, experiential exercises are the primary work in these groups. We also devote time for individual sessions as you or the staff request. The day starts and ends with a chapel service that creatively emphasizes the theme for that day.
As mentioned previously, the day begins with morning chapel at 8:00 a.m. There are short breaks throughout the day and an hour and a half lunch break. Each evening we enjoy an evening meal together and close the day with chapel.
These retreats are powerful life-changing experiences. Expect to meet with God and receive the breakthrough that you so desire. As soon as we receive your registration form, we will place you on our international prayer list–first name only–and of course, no other details! Our team will uphold you in prayer as you prepare for the retreat, attend it, as well as during your “re-entry” back home! Encourage those closest to you to support you in prayer, too, while you are on your retreat. We sincerely pray that God will accomplish all that He desires for you while you are with us. We look forward to meeting you and working with you.
The fee is $995 which includes all aspects of the program including drinks and snacks as well as dinner together. A deposit of $300 holds your place and the balance is paid when you arrive at the retreat.
We have arranged special rates with a local hotel. Let us know if you want to save costs by sharing a room and we’ll try to facilitate that.
We are providing round trip airport shuttle as well as a shuttle to and from your hotel and the retreat home for a fee of $75. No longer do you have the expense of renting a car.

To register for an event, please complete our questionnaire. Please fill it out and submit it.
Once we receive it, we will contact you concerning your acceptance. That simply means that based on what you’ve shared and our prayerful consideration, we believe that God can use the retreat as an important next step in your journey.
Please be aware that we are not a rehab center. Therefore we cannot accept those who are struggling with addiction to drugs and/or alcohol. We suggest going through a rehab program first and then consider doing a retreat.
Healing for the Nations has the right to deny acceptance of anyone if after prayerful consideration we don’t believe the retreat is the best next step for that individual. In addition, while in most cases we will explain our decision, we are not obligated to do so.Register Now!
