The Fall Encounter
We are very excited to announce that we have an incredible new location for our 2021 Encounter! We are moving to Cohutta Springs Retreat Center – a full service resort facility situated on 800 acres of beautiful North Georgia wilderness. The location is absolutely stunning; surrounded by charming forest trails and a pristine 55 acre lake.
The Encounter will be held on October 21-24, 2021. Having the event in the fall will be a nice change from the previous winter Encounters and allows us to take advantage of some very fun activities that include a zip line, flying chair, canoes, tennis courts, hiking, and more. Also, we are hoping that having the Encounter in the fall of 2021 allows for more time for the Corona virus to dissipate.
