Are all experiences at Haven?
Most of our Refresh and Encourage experiences in Michigan are at Haven. We have purchased nearly 50 acres on a private lake in Hanover, MI. It’s a little rustic now but by the spring of 2020 we are hoping to highlight the true beauty in the land, complete with a modern farmhouse for you to Refresh your soul and be Encouraged like never before.
We have partnered with Barn 45 to host our ONE DAY experience. They are an incredible partner and have developed a really special environment that is just perfect for a day of rest and listening.
When will the farmhouse be built?
We are under construction right now! Fingers crossed, we’ll have a shiny new white farmhouse by Memorial Day of 2020.
What’s the difference between Refresh and Encourage?
Refresh is our Series of experiences for Men and Encourage is for Women. Each teach the same truths, handcrafted to speak to each gender in their language. Both require a one year commitment.
Who is allowed to come?
Our experiences are designed for Christians between the ages of 25 and 60. One Day is open to the public and is offered several times a year. Refresh and Encourage follow an application process.
How do I sign up for Refresh or Encourage?
We will announce new groups as they open. At that time we will open an application period. When groups open up you can apply and our team will help you determine if you are a good fit for the experience. You can also email us and let us know you are interested in a future group.
Why an application process?
We have developed this process for the protection of each group. We limit each Refresh and Encourage group to 10 participants. We intentionally keep the groups small in each Experience to allow for authentic relationships, transparency, and maximum community building. As such, it is critical that everyone in each group is ready to take their relationship with Jesus to the next level. We are not looking for perfect people. In fact, it’s quite the opposite. We are looking for desperate people willing to jump in head first on the journey with Jesus and let him speak to them right where they are.
When are the Experiences?
One Day will be held at various times over the year and are on one day. Each Refresh and Encourage experience consist of four unique events wrapped up into one calendar year (e.g. May, September, January, and May). We will announce additional dates as new groups open. In general, each Experience will be 3-4 months apart.
How long are each of the Experiences?
One Day is a 10 hour experience. Each Refresh and Encourage experience is 48-hours in length, typically spread out over a two night stay at Haven.
What if I can’t make all four Refresh or Encourage experiences?
We completely understand scheduling… it can be tough. That is why we have designed each experience to last only 48-hours (or less). If you cannot make one of the four experiences, we ask that you select a future one that may fit your schedule at a later time. It is critical that you attend each of the four dates to ensure that you get the maximum out of Seek Well. As such, we ask for a commitment up front that you can make all four dates.
How much does this thing cost?
Our current pricing for One Day is $69. Our Refresh and Encourage experiences cost $99 each (or $396 total).
What do I need to bring?
We will email you a short list of items to bring for each experience. However, you can probably pack everything that’s needed within an hour.
What about food?
We have you covered. Food is included with the cost of each Experience. Feel free to bring any snacks that you can’t live without. But beyond your Oreo’s®, you’re all set! BTW – we know how to eat well too!
How do I dress?
Michigan weather is often unpredictable. Dress for the weather because it’s 100% likely you will spend the vast majority of the day outdoors.
What about food allergies?
We will do our best to accommodate food allergies. Please let us know in advance and we will plan accordingly.
Will there be bugs?
Lots of them. Plan on it. Get over it. Embrace it.
