2021 Skyland Bible Conference

2021 Skyland Bible Conference

The 65th annual Skyland Bible Conference (July 3-9) will be held at Bluefield College in Bluefield, Virginia. The conference is known for its in-depth Bible teaching, friendly fellowship, and outstanding activities for all ages both on and off the campus.

*** Check-in at Conference is 2:00 pm on Saturday, July 3rd - PLEASE NO CHECK-INS BEFORE 2:00 PM. ***

Continuing the tradition of excellent Bible teaching, the speakers for the 2021 conference will be Mike Attwood and Nate Bramsen (Joe Reese will not be able to travel from Canada this time). 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.

Skyland Bible Conference is very 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.

Conference Speakers

Mike Attwood: Born in Leeds, England, Mike was saved out of the Catholic Church. He is now involved in itinerant preaching around the world. He currently lives with his family in Springfield, MO.

Shared Bath - This is two rooms that are adjoined by a bath. This is ideal for families with children and even single individuals that are rooming with friends.

Private Bath - While there really are not any true private bath rooms on the campus, there is plenty of room to create private bath situations. Essentially, you will be assigned one half of a shared bath and no one will be on the other side.

Apartment - There are a limited number of 3 bedroom apartments available. They will be first come/ first serve based on availability. Due to the nature of these, they are only available for family/ groups of 4 people.
