Onsite Experience

The 29th Annual Black Church Leadership and Family Conference, near Asheville, in Black Mountain, NC. Experience three events in one: a leadership development conference, spiritual retreat, and family vacation in the beautiful mountains of North Carolina. Whether you are a pastor, pastor’s spouse, a ministry leader, or church member, God has called you to lead fearlessly in the work of His Kingdom. This conference is uniquely designed for black, urban, and multi-cultural churches. You will leave encouraged, equipped, and inspired.

In addition to leadership development, your entire family will be provided with a week of spiritual development, recreation, and quality family time. Kids under 12 attend day camp or preschool during adult session times (preschool also available during evening worship). Students in grades 7-12 attend FUGE camp for an incredible week of Bible study, worship, and recreation.

So bring your family and as many church leaders and members as possible for an unforgettable week together. 

Special early bird rate available through April 15, 2022.
