Unbound: Freedom in Christ

Live your baptism and the freedom of children of God

Aug. 26-28, 2022
3-Day Weekend Retreat for Men or Women

Retreat starts Friday with rosary and Mass at 8:00pm, ends Sunday with Noon lunch.

Open your heart and respond more fully to Jesus’s invitation of abundant life

The Unbound retreat will be led by Father Gary Coulter, director of Unbound Ministry in the Diocese of Lincoln (lincolndiocese.org/unbound), and director of Our Lady of Good Counsel Retreat House.

Unbound provides a safe and effective model that helps individuals respond to the Gospel and apply the Lord’s grace, love and truth by deeply listen to their own story and heart. Based on the book, Unbound: A Practical Guide to Deliverance by Neal Lozano, it employs five keys that enable people to experience a profound conversion experience: 1. Repenting of sin and expressing faith in Jesus; 2. Forgiving oneself and others; 3. Renouncing the lies, spirits and tactics of Satan; 4. Taking authority over the works of Satan; 5. Receiving the Father’s blessing.

Father Coulter, who has also personally experienced the healing and freedom of Unbound, explained the theme, “Freedom in Christ.” “The retreat will be an opportunity to encounter Christ,” he said, “to experience the healing of Christ, who comes to reunite us with the Father. Jesus’ ministry was one of healing, one of deliverance. We can encounter the overwhelming love of God who can enter into the pains and wounds of life.”

“It’s about stepping more fully into our identity as a son or daughter of God,” he said. “We are made for intimacy with him, to experience the truth of His heart that counters the lies and helps us to know that we are loved. The retreat is important because all of us need time to be with God, to allow the Holy Spirit to touch our hearts. ”

Men and women who come on the retreat will have the opportunity to be prayed for using the five keys, but should read the first part of “Unbound” or watch the video series beforehand.
