College Conference @ Montreat

January 2–February 28, 2021Young Adults
More information, including program registration, coming soon.

After much prayer and hope during the Covid-19 pandemic, it is clear that we won’t be able to gather together for a traditional College Conference in January 2021.

Montreat College Conference’s program is called “Grounded in God: Exploring Spirituality Amidst Uncertainty” and focuses on the variety of ways we can stay rooted in our relationship with God even as we experience anxiety and feel less connected. There will be 4 sessions, including a closing worship liturgy. While we are designing the sessions for use over a weekend retreat, you can easily adapt it into a longer time frame and use over several weeks. Sessions include exploration of Scripture and spiritual practices that will allow your group to explore together and individually. The curriculum is intentionally low-tech (no videos) to give some space for connecting without screens but would work over Zoom if that is your safest option.

You can purchase “Grounded in God: Exploring Spirituality Amidst Uncertainty” for $200 per group. If this price causes you economic hardship, please contact evelync@montreat.org.

But we still want to meet together in Montreat!

We know that some of you would still like to travel to Montreat with your group in 2021, and we want to offer you the space to gather safely. We will be offering a 25% discount for college and campus ministry groups to stay in the Assembly Inn or our lodges. This offer is valid from January 2–February 28, 2021 with a two night minimum. Find out more in the “Housing” tab below.

The curriculum for this program mentioned above will be included with your stay in Montreat as well as a meeting space to utilize at your convenience.

We take your safety during your stay with us seriously. Please visit the Guest Health and Safety page to see how we are protecting your and ourselves while you are here.


We are offering to rent any of our lodges to campus and college ministry groups, subject to availability, with a minimum of two nights. The rates below are discounted from our normal group lodge rental rates. If you are interested in securing housing, please fill out the inquiry form at the link below.

We have both small and larger lodges that can be booked according to your group size. Our lodges also come with kitchens for you to make meals on your own.
