May 16–19, 2022AdultSpecial EventsWorship

The 2022 NEXT Church National Gathering is an invitation to rest, restore, and explore stories that need to be told – about why we rest, why we resist rest, and why some [of us] cannot rest.

There are three housing options:
  1. stay in Montreat Conference Center Lodges (Housing in Assembly Inn is FULL)
  2. stay in William Black Lodge,
  3. or find private housing on your own.

More information about each option is below.

Please note: You may not purchase breakfast if staying in Montreat lodges or private housing.
