Smoky Mountain Creation Retreat

exploring the hardest problems in creation


Join us in 2024

March 1-3, 2024   Pigeon Forge, TN

The Smoky Mountain Creation Retreat is in our 9th year, and we are excited to share this special weekend with creationists like YOU! Our creation retreats allow students, scholars, and creationists from all walks of life to wrestle with the most challenging questions in a safe and supportive space.

This year, our special guest will be Bryan College’s newest instructor, Jackson Gravitt. All weekend, we’ll consider the importance and value of the doctrine of creation throughout the history of the church, as Jackson walks us through the earliest Church fathers to the middle ages to the Reformation and beyond.  If you’ve ever wondered why this creation issue matters at all, this is definitely the weekend for you!

This event is held in the quiet seclusion of the Smokies, allowing for an intimate experience for creationists to ask hard questions and have discussions with accomplished creationist scholars and scientists. We carefully consider the believer’s lifelong quest to understand God and His creation. The mountains are calling!

This year, we’re implementing a new pricing structure. We heard your concerns last year, and after investigating, we found an issue that made our rental cost much more than it should have. We are thrilled to share that this issue has been resolved! We hope this year will be more affordable for all guests.

Professors, if you bring three students, we will happily give you the student rate! We want to fill our cabin this year, and Professors are vital in helping us reach this goal.
