Genuine personal relationships are the goal of our connections. Authentic fellowship is the purpose of our communication. Serving together to bring glory to the Father is the reason for our complementation.
The initial and intentional means for achieving real relational connection are our Sons Gatherings. Sons Gatherings are simply gatherings of sons for a concentrated period of time (usually 4-5 days). These gatherings are low on content and high on personal contact. Each attendee is encouraged to share his story in an atmosphere of honesty and trust. Sons Gatherings are safe environments only a spiritual father can create.
Firecreek Mountain is the primary setting for Sons Gatherings. FireCreek Mountain is a fifty-eight acre mountain retreat brimming with lush natural beauty and inspiration. Located near the highest mountain peaks east of the Mississippi, FireCreek is nestled in Yancey County, home to more artisans per capita than in any other county in the United States.
These remarkable assemblies have proven to be both pivotal and seminal for those who participate. The impact of the gatherings will only be measured in heaven. Sons Gatherings are merely launching pads from which real relationships can be established and find expression.
Next Gathering is planned for June 17-21, 2013.
