Lake Junaluska, North Carolina

A Gathering of the Laity is a spiritual retreat weekend that brings together   outstanding speakers, Spirit-filled music, and the beauty of the North Carolina mountains to create an experience that will renew your spirit and revitalize your faith!

Held at the beautiful Lake Junaluska Conference & Retreat Center, this annual event attracts attendees from throughout the southeast United States and beyond.

"The Gathering" has become a summer tradition for many, with many frequently returning year after year to be challenged by powerful speakers, to engage with others in worship and prayer, and to grow spiritually through times of personal study and reflection.

This year's theme is "Transformers:  Transforming our communities, our churches, and our lives!"  Our focus will be on the many ways we are challenged to live out our mission as disciples of Christ to make a difference in the world.
