There is freedom from the emotional wounds of your abortion.

Abortion is devastating and leaves a lasting impact on your heart, but it is not unforgivable.

Many believe that they are forgiven, but cannot forgive themselves.

Jesus has come to give you freedom from your abortion wounded heart.

We are here to help you experience that freedom.

Since 2008, we’ve led hundreds of retreats that helped women and men just like you experience healing and lasting freedom.

I knew I’d been forgiven, but I still felt powerless

After an abortion in 1973, Jimmy experienced an ongoing feeling of guilt, shame, and powerlessness. As many men do, he shut down those feelings and suppressed the pain. At the Deeper Still retreat, he experienced a sense of real, raw healing that can only come from Jesus.

Your life could change in one weekend.

Getting away from the busyness of life is the best way to find hope and healing.

We do that through Deeper Still Retreats throughout the year all across the country.

Every retreat is:


Free of charge

Led by people who have been where you are

A safe and confidential environment

Men also carry the wounds of abortion.

You’ve always been told abortion is a women’s issue. Whether you had a choice or not, you are a still a father and your heart matters. Freedom from the wounds of abortion is also for you.

Taking the first step is the hardest part.

If you reach out, we’ll take your hand, and walk right beside you through the entire weekend.
