Greetings!!! My name is Pastor Charles Nelson.
This is my seventh year to produce The Ultimate Smoky Mountain Christmas Celebration. Each year gets more exciting and better. As a Pastor, I was looking for a place to take my people where I knew they would be entertained, laugh out loud and NOT be embarrassed by the shows. I always wanted to get a good return for money spent. I found some great places, but I also wanted a place that had a spiritual impact as well.
So I decided to create the very best value with as much included as possible. This makes it easy for group leaders. We have churches and individuals that have been coming every year because they found this event to be a blessing. I know if you attend one time, you’ll plan to come every year. May the Lord bless you and I can’t wait to meet you!

Each one is amazingly talented on their own chosen instrument. They are winning awards all across the country and will bless your socks off.

You’ll laugh… you’ll cry…. you’ll stand to your feet as they bless your hearts with beautiful music about Jesus!
THE LE FEVRE QUARTET We’ve had them once before and knew we wanted to bring them back as soon as possible. They can bring power to the stage with their strong anthems and then they can bring peace to your hearts with soul touching melodies. Prepare to enjoy Southern Gospel at it’s best.
THE KINGSMEN QUARTET For over 50 years this group has been defining Southern Gospel music around the world. You would be hard pressed to find another group that has embodied Southern Gospel like The Kingsmen. Their blend is superb and their choice of music fits them like a glove. Prepare to be blessed!!!

This is going to be soooooo much FUN!!!!
PASTOR ANDREW NELSON Is an exceptional preacher. He was the campus pastor at The University of Central Florida. Prior to that, he was a youth pastor at a Vietnamese church and spoke to conferences around the country. He is the favorite Pastor of our host…Pastor Charles Nelson. And maybe he’s biased since Andrew is one of his two sons. Prepare to hear about Jesus!!!
