The Message of Christmas

You will be blessed by God’s Holy Word as we hear the true story of Christmas proclaimed. Our Preacher will touch your heart and impact your life as he relates a message that will help you celebrate Christmas more deeply than ever before
The Message of Christmas

Just a word from your host…

As a Southern Baptist Pastor, I was always looking for someplace 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 possible with as much included as possible. I don’t know where you can get a deal like this: four nights lodging, seven meals, eight Southern Gospel concerts, two comedians, Great Peaching, three of the best theaters shows, and Dollywood for such an incredible price. I’ve tried to do all the planning so all you have to do is gather your group and bring them to Pigeon Forge. I know you and your group will enjoy this event!
-Pastor Charles Nelson
