Continuing the tradition of excellent Bible teaching, the speakers for the 2017 conference will be Mike Attwood and Joe Reese. Also, Nathan Bramsen will be assisting with the teen ministry as well as coordinating afternoon activities for the physically active that will have a spiritual emphasis. Nate will also be assisting with the afternoon Bible discussions. If you are looking for a spiritually enriching vacation, rather than mere entertainment, this is your best choice.
A conference for the whole family. Receive spiritual edification, renew acquaintances and make new ones, enjoy varied activities for all ages, see the sites around Southwestern Virginia.
Now Skyland Bible Conference is even more affordable for large families. The conference offers a $75 discount for each immediate family member over three (3) members. So the larger the family, the more you save!
For example: a family of 5 can come to Skyland for a whole week of lodging, meals, lots of fun, as well as spiritual enrichment for less than $850. That is $850 for a week’s lodging and all meals, not to mention all the activities that are available and it is a great value. Then add the incredible ministry and the Bible study and the wonderful fellowship with other Christian believers and you really see the value of the conference.
Everyone is encouraged to sign up by May 15th so that the conference staff can plan effectively.
Feel free to take a few minutes and watch the video presentation of what Skyland Bible Conference has to offer. (This video was prepared in 2011)
