In case you missed it we had a blast at this winter’s EDGE Conferences at Caswell and Pigeon Forge! A HUGE thanks goes out to everyone who played a part behind-the-scenes to make everything run smoothly. For those who attended, we hope that your group had an incredible, God-centered experience. We are continually amazed by the ways God chooses to bless this conference and we are honored to be a part of his work in the lives of your students and leaders.

Also, we are so thankful to have had the opportunity to minister alongside such great people as Mike Keahbone, Harris III, David Josiah, Dave Edwards, Ben Glenn, and Micah Watson. Thank you for allowing God to work through you to affect the lives of students and youth leaders at this year’s events.

We are happy to report that our Mission:Grand (work project) experiment was a success at Pigeon Forge. Thanks to the hard work of our volunteer students and leaders we finished all of our primary and secondary work projects at The Grand in almost half the allotted time! Because of your hard work and sacrificial spirit we have not only helped transform the physical property of The Grand but also the hearts of many of the staff that our ministry works with each year. Thank you for representing Christ well in this project.

This winter was the last winter conference at our Caswell location. While we always enjoy the staff and facilities at Caswell we have finally reached a point where we feel it would be better for us to focus on putting together a single winter worship experience each year at Pigeon Forge. We are grateful for each of you who have joined us at Caswell in the past and hope that you will consider making the move to Pigeon Forge.

We are already looking forward to putting together a great event next winter. We are still working out the programming, activities, costs, and other details for next winter’s conference so please keep an eye out for information about next winter’s event on the EDGE website.
