New Frontiers – What Is It?

Are you ready for a new frontier?  Are you ready for an adventure in getting to know your Father?  We’re so excited to be sharing material with you from Ransomed Heart’s “Wild At Heart” Bootcamps.  Each month we’ll work through a different session, some of which include The Heart Of A Man, The Poser, The Wound and The New Name.
