Worship and the Arts

September 25 - September 29
Montreat Conference Center, 401 Assembly Drive, Montreat, NC 28757 United States + Google Map

The focus will be on Advent Year B. Our theme will be based on Psalm 80, with its cry "Restore us, O God; let your face shine, that we may be saved." Advent is a time for waiting, for yearning, for deliverance and restoration, but what is it we are waiting for? What is the expectation that defines our hope? Advent calls us to new/different/unexpected responses. Rather than just endorsing the patterns that are there, we are called to use…

Montreat Conference Center, 401 Assembly Drive, Montreat, NC 28757 United States + Google Map

Come create with your hands, gain proficiency in an art form, and enjoy the community of other artists during a fall week in the mountains. Years ago M. C. Richards, renowned potter, came to Black Mountain College to teach poetry but ended up with her hands in clay.

Texts of Terror

October 15 - October 18
Montreat Conference Center, 401 Assembly Drive, Montreat, NC 28757 United States + Google Map
Montreat Conference Center

Not all texts in the Bible are easy to read. There are passages in our Scriptures about conquest and holy war, divine vengeance and ethnic bias, domestic violence and gendered hierarchy. For many contemporary readers, these so-called “texts of terror” raise a number of ethical and theological problems. In what sense can such texts be considered holy or sacred? How can they be preached on, taught, or studied in a manner that is both intellectually honest and theologically responsible? Do…

Montreat Conference Center, 401 Assembly Drive, Montreat, NC 28757 United States + Google Map
Montreat Conference Center

Shrouded in legend and imbued with romance, the Celtic lands such as Ireland, Scotland, and Wales have produced a surprising number of saints and spiritual guides, both ancient and contemporary. In our day, as Christians seek ways to celebrate stewardship of God’s good creation, a healthy and balanced relationship between men and women, and a spirituality that links the quest for holiness and a profound sense of the nearness of the love of God—again and again the Celts emerge as…

Montreat Conference Center, 401 Assembly Drive, Montreat, NC 28757 United States + Google Map
2018 College Conference at Montreat - Home

The word “Home” has many meanings to people of faith. As young people go to college, study abroad, begin jobs, engage in mission work, and leave their home towns and families of origin, “Home” begins to have new meanings. What makes a place home? What does it mean to leave home? What does it mean to feel like you don’t have a home? As we wrestle with these questions, we look to the past and to Holy Scriptures; as people…

Progressive Youth Ministry

March 6, 2018 - March 9, 2018
Montreat Conference Center, 401 Assembly Drive, Montreat, NC 28757 United States + Google Map

It can be difficult for a youth worker who identifies as “progressive” or “liberal” to find resources and support. Most events, conferences, camps, and curricula cater to evangelicals. But as progressive theology gains more of a foothold in the church, we need a place to gather as well — a tribe to meet with, and new ideas to stoke our imaginations. In 2012, John Vest and Tony Jones, both veteran youth workers, began talking about a conference that would allow progressive…
