Camp Victory | Zumbro Falls, Minnesota
Women’s conference for women Ages 16+
Join us for a full day of teaching and worship as we explore God’s heart for love, sex, and relationships. When we look at the cultural climate, it’s hard to see how we can reclaim its intended sacredness for ourselves and our daughters. Discover why God created sexuality, what it reveals about the gospel, and how we can inspire the next generation with His good design. It is our hope that you’ll leave deeper in love with the God who lovingly pursues us!

Across My Heart Team
Across My Heart Ministries started with a group of friends who wanted to influence the next generation of young women to passionately pursue the heart of God with their whole life. What started as overnight retreats for local churches has blossomed into a thriving online presence, podcast and Bible studies for women as well as an annual youth conference in West Michigan!

Session 1: CREATED TO LOVE
As sexed beings, our sexuality points toward a deeper need – love. We desire to know and be known while unknowingly harboring barriers to intimacy and vulnerability. Our self-protective measures and shallow commitments fall short of the covenantal relationships that God designed. And yet, whether married or single, God is the One who promises to meet our deepest need.
Session 2: Sexual Revelation and the sexual revolution
The history of the Sexual Revolution has its own narrative of morality, but God’s Word reveals what we should believe about love. From the Free Love Movement of the 1960s to the latest headlines in our national news, we will discover the roots of the Sexual Revolution began growing way back in the Garden.The Bible begins with a marital union in the Garden and ends with the Marriage Supper of the Lamb. While the culture has its own narrative of sexual morality, God’s Word reveals what we should truly believe about love and life.
Session 3: The Science of Sex: How the Biology supports the Theology of sex
God designed our bodies to respond to sex in very specific and profound ways. In this session we will see how the biology of sex supports the theology of sex and how deviations from God’s design, including premarital sex and pornography, have very real chemical consequences within the human body.
Session 4: Reclaiming Sexuality
Reclaiming sexuality begins in our own lives. If we want to transform our culture with the truth of God’s good design, we must first let His truths transform us.
