What other Pastors have to say about UTK...

"Untying the Knots of the Heart has radically transformed, not just my church, but my own life. It has transformed my marriage, my parenting, and my approach towards ministry. It’s been, without a doubt, one of the most deeply impactful experiences in my walk with God. Every pastor should take and lead this group."
Matt Priebe
"I remember a point in my life as a pastor when I just couldn’t shake the notion that I was missing something. I knew a lot about God and I was serving him faithfully, but for some reason all that knowledge and activity, I still didn’t experience that deeper sense of love and joy I was longing for. God used Untying the Knots of the Heart in a major way in my life and in my church. I’ve found nothing else out there as transformative as this for church members."
Matt Pierce
"Untying the Knots of the Heart was invaluable for me in unraveling the false beliefs I had and how they affected my decision-making in ways I had never realized. I would recommend UTK to any person who wants to get past those pesky, recurring decisions that keep all of us stuck. It was truly a life-changing experience.''
Aaron Couch

Untying the Knots of the Heart (Part 1) is composed of 4 Modules

Module 1: Our Spiritual & Cultural Origin

Visit and reflect on your own background and personal life experiences that have impacted and shaped your default beliefs, instincts, and behaviors.

Module 2: The Impact of Family Background

The Bible constantly tells us to take off our “old self.” To do this, it is critically important for each of us to gain a firm understanding of the powerful forces that have helped shape our instincts and default beliefs, both positively and negatively.

Module 3: Your New Family

Begin the process of getting introducing to the family environment of the Trinity. God’s true family environment should impact and shape our default beliefs and instincts about ourselves, others, and himself far more deeply than our fallen world.

Module 4: Your New Identity

We seek to better understand our inner life in light of what we learned about our life stories and our new Heavenly Family environment. In these lessons we explore the important issue of personal identity. We begin learning perspectives about our identity that help align our inner life, instincts, and default beliefs more closely to what God intended, increasing our awareness of our inner life.


Scripture is saturated into everything UTK teaches and touches on. In fact, it is scripture that allows participants in this process to go deeper with the gospel, so Christ can transform every area of their life. We strongly believe God’s Word is the answer. The Bible alone defines who God is, who we are and what life is about.

Many Christian resources lead us to try to change our behavior or circumstances without addressing the root causes. Untying the Knots of the Heart is a dynamic, interactive process that helps people address the source of their sin and struggles, rather than offering a “band-aid” or quick fix. 

We all know that information alone doesn’t change people. UTK takes the life-changing truths of the gospel and helps participants identify the areas in which the gospel is not being fully integrated or lived out in their lives. 

Untying the Knots of the Heart is not:

  1. Your everyday small group curriculum or Bible study 
    • It’s a dynamic and interactive process, where participants learn to unpack who they are in light of who Christ is.
  2. Taught like a class
    • UTK is not just another source of information. Using interactive learning techniques, UTK is a unique journey where both facilitator and participants can process, learn from each other, and experience healing.
  3. Group therapy or counseling
    • It’s a discipleship process that can have similar outcomes

Untying the Knots of the Heart is for everyone. God has used UTK to transform the lives of those struggling with substance abuse or depression, as well those who seem to “have it all together” and have been serving as pastors or missionaries for 20+ years.

All of us as Christians deal with inner life issues and difficulties at different times in our lives. UTK may be a good resource for anyone that might identify with something on the list below:

  • Relational problems, depression/sadness, anxiety, sexual sin/brokenness, disappointment, conflict, grief or loss, emptiness, divorce or marriage issues, past abuse, addictions, difficulty forgiving self or regrets, emotional turmoil or numbness, anger or temper, disordered eating, or past hurts.
