In January, 2015 Wellspring Group met with lay and pastoral leaders from First United Methodist Church, Butler, PA to begin dreaming and planning to bring the Battle for the Heart to Pennsylvania. From the outset there was a strong, sobering sense of the spiritual challenges stemming from generational pain in western PA. In the midst of fervent prayer there was a deep commitment to see men and women, families and generations set free through a life changing experience of God’s love overflowing to all they touch.
In 2016 Wellspring Group and First United Methodist Church, Butler, PA partnered together to host the first Battle for the Heart in Pennsylvania. After equipping key church leaders with the heart and skills of the Battle for the Heart process we are looking forward to the ripple effect that this partnership will have in the coming years as individuals, couples, families, church leaders, small groups, communities and the region are impacted by the transformation taking place as men and women are coming alive to the whole heart, the Larger Story and stepping into who they were created to be.
