This is located in Black Mountain, NC, just minutes away from the FOT location. We will be providing lodging ranging from camper sites, tent sites, bunk houses, lodge rooms, etc. at very reasonable prices. Space is limited so please act quickly.

This event is all about unity among believers. We are focused on love, encouragement, and coming together as one big family. Our desire is for the celebration of His festivals to be a safe and peaceful place for all who attend. Please remember to be hospitable to all and that no divisive subjects will be encouraged or tolerated.  We believe the Heavenly Father will reveal himself to each and every believer in His own time and in the way that He divinely chooses. Remember that it is only through love that we can share our light to the world around us. We hope that each and every one of you who attend will be blessed by this event and we appreciate your cooperation in bringing further glory to the Kingdom of God.
