We are always looking for men and women to facilitate a Battle for Your Heart or a Battle for Your Domain.

Join our Leadership Equipping Track network. Facilitators, retreat speakers and other Wellspring alumni gather once a year for our annual LET - Leadership Summit.

Short of re-reading your guidebook or staying in touch with your team, how can you keep your heart alive to truths you discovered in the Battle? We have two new resources to help you keep your skills and knowledge fresh:
Field Notes: Echoes of the Fellowship - Wellspring's Field Notes are a set of 31 ring-bound cards, one for each day of the month. The Notes offer key content from the Battle for Your Heart in a compact format you can keep on your dashboard or tuck into a briefcase or purse. Use these short reminders of the Larger Story as you pray, before you engage another's heart, or as a reminder of who you were created to be. Bound with a carabiner ring to keep the set in tact, the Field Notes are an excellent tool for staying grounded in the Four Realities. $15 per set. Available on the Wellspring Store.
- Field Journal - These sturdy spiral-bound Journals come complete with the Elevator Model of the Heart, Feeling Words chart, Desires chart, and plenty of pages for you to explore your thoughts, feelings, desires, and choices as you reflect on the current State of Your Heart. With 16 entries per journal, this journal can keep you in the practice of knowing the state of your heart as you continue the Battle for those in your domain. $15 Available on the Wellspring Store.
