Preparation

This life that a we live is not merely a collection of mountain-top moments, but rather a journey in which God starts and finishes things over long periods of time. Often times the most transformational moments occur months and even years before the mountain top experiences in which we become aware of, and recognize, Gods handy work on the backend.

That being said, there are a few things we want you to consider prior to your arrival:

PHILISOPHICAL

  • Why did you choose to come?
  • Why do you think it is that God made a way for you to attend?
  • What are you expecting from God at this event?

THEOLOGICAL

  • What are some of the ideas that you’ve been pondering over the last several weeks/months/years?

PERSONAL

  • What is your role in the Body of Christ? (equipper, goer, mobilizer, etc.)
  • What do you need in order to be propelled forward?

DEVELOPMENTAL – TO SHARE

  • What are the top 5 most impactful Christian books you’ve ever read?
  • Top 5 preachers that you listen to and for what topic.
  • What are some healthy churches in your area?

SOCRATIC TOPICS THAT WILL BE ON THE TABLE

  • The Holy Spirit for today
  • The role of the Church in todays climate, and how do we support it
  • Jesus in todays culture
  • Evangelism – The Gospel
  • How do we engage where we are
  • Creationism
  • Is God to kind for Hell
  • Sexuality in the culture
  • Biblical finance (personal & corporate church)
  • Business
  • How do we see us/this moving forward

Getting There

FROM ATLANTA, GA:

From 75 North through Atlanta take I-575 north and stay on this highway to Blue Ridge. This four-lane road becomes Highway #76, also known as the Appalachian Highway and Highway #515. You will pass through Canton, Jasper, Ellijay, Cherry Log and then Blue Ridge.

At the 3rd traffic light in Blue Ridge (McDonald’s on your left) (DO NOT TURN LEFT AT McDONALDS) proceed 6.3 miles (stay on #76 heading east towards Blairsville) to Loving Road. Turn left onto Loving Road and go exactly two miles to Old Loving Road.

Turn left onto Old Loving Road and travel for 1.1 miles. Old Loving Road becomes Lowery Road – do not turn onto any gravel roads! Stay on Lowery Road to My Mountain Road, the Main Entrance Gate (3 stone pillars w/green gates).

Turn left through the main gate marked My Mountain Road and continue about 1.6 miles until the paved road ends. Look for 1662 My Mountain Road – the last driveway on the right when the paved road ends. We work from our own cabin on the mountain, and our cabin’s name is “Above the Rest” so you will see a sign for it at the end of our driveway with the name “Jenkins” and the street #. Check in is downstairs.
