Welcome to True Pursuit
True Pursuit is a men’s ministry founded in 2005 by Pete Emhoff and his team – Band of Brothers – who are committed to fighting for our own hearts and for the hearts of others. Our true pursuit is to see “hearts rescued and freedom gained” for every man.
Based in Southeast Michigan, our deep desire is to empower men to pursue what is true about their hearts, lives and calling. Our message is to help men interpret the stories of their lives, so they can bring into view the larger story, God’s story, in which our strength and glory will play a crucial role.
Using our own stories of breakthrough, healing and restoration and combining them with the themes from the book Wild at Heart by John Eldredge, and the Wild at Heart Boot Camps in CO, we uniquely offer this message to men at our yearly True Pursuit Weekend. We have chosen Young Life’s Timber Wolf Lake in mid-Michigan for our weekend. Timber Wolf Lake offers easy access for men from all over the Midwest. The setting affords time for great activities, conversations, and life-changing interactions, which we have seen restore men and equip them to walk in freedom. The presenting team also teaches the True Pursuit message for men in Central New York.
At True Pursuit, we have learned how much we enjoy and how important it is to create safe environments where the Spirit of God can work on men’s hearts. Whether it is a small group, one-on-one’s, a bonfire in one of our backyards, a bi-monthly webinar or at one of our weekends, men are offered safe places to be honest with themselves, with other men and with God. Out of those safe places and honest conversations, flow the breakthrough, healing and restoration that men so desperately need to walk in freedom.
