Presbyterian Chaplains

Chaplain Credentialing & Training Course

This credentialing and training course brings military and government chaplains and their families together for a time of learning, daily worship, connection, and refreshment.

Hosted by Montreat Conference Center
August 5–9, 2019

The Chaplain Credentialing and Training Course will be held at Montreat Conference Center this year. It is nestled in between the mountains just 20 minutes east of Asheville, North Carolina. Of the 4,000 acres that make up Montreat, 2,500 acres are dedicated to wilderness. There are also 21 hiking trails of almost 30 miles. Accommodations will be in the historic Assembly Inn with meals in the Galax Dining Room. Child care and a youth program are available during the day.


Rates and Accommodations

We are now full in Assembly Inn for this conference. We have added rooms in the Winsborough, which is a rustic dorm-style lodge, located across the lake from Assembly Inn. It is not air-conditioned or handicapped accessible and does not have an elevator.  All meals are served in Assembly Inn which is a short walk around the lake from the Winsborough. Find out more here. If your command is paying, the total cost for this option is $480 instead of $540, which I will adjust once I receive your reservation.
Room check-in AFTER 3:00 pm on Monday. Room check-out BEFORE 11:00 am on Friday.
You are also welcome to make your own hotel reservation at the new Hampton Inn in Black Mountain.https://hamptoninn3.hilton.com/en/hotels/north-carolina/hampton-inn-black-mountain-AVLMOHX/index.html?SEO_id=GMB-HP-AVLMOHX   It is about a 10 minute commute to Montreat Conference Center. If you choose this option you can call Susan Akduman at 828-419-9829 and she can register you for the training and the meal plan which is $260.
