2023 has been an amazing year in many ways. We have seen old friends return after two years under COVID and have made many new friends who have fallen in love with this special place. Our recovery is not complete, but we have been able to live into our mission even more fully this year, welcoming folks who desperately need to reconnect with each other, with God, and with the beauty of this world.
Our ministry is truly unique. We provide a safe, comfortable, beautiful place for YOU to experience reconnection and renewal. If you’ve been to Valle Crucis recently, you’ll remember the historic buildings, the sweeping views of the ancient mountains, and the gentle sway of rocking chairs. Each of those aspects of ministry costs to maintain and update.
We are going to need places of respite like Valle Crucis more than ever in the coming years. Can we count on you for a gift of $50, $100, $500, or more to ensure that Valle Crucis thrives? Your generosity makes a real and substantial difference in our ministry of hospitality.
Keep those rocking chairs rocking! Simply click here to be taken directly to our donation page or mail a check made out to VCCC to PO Box 654, Valle Crucis, NC 28691 (be sure to note 2023 Giving in the memo!)
And please know that you are keeping this sacred place alive for generations to come.
All Year Giving Keeps Us Afloat
The mission and ministry of the Valle Crucis Conference Center is to enable rest, renewal, and transformation through care for natural beauty and a true commitment to hospitality. We embody Christ in the world through a ministry of hospitality, by preparing a safe, comfortable, beautiful space; honoring the seeker, refreshing the weary, and nourishing the hungry; and being careful stewards of the Thin Place that is Valle Crucis.
By supporting the Valle Crucis Conference Center, you are helping to provide rest and respite for over 3,000 guests every year. The "Mission School," as our history names us, belongs to the many who make it a sacred place of reflection and renewal, and the rich community of mountain folks who surround and support us every day.
The Valle Crucis Conference Center is a ministry of the Episcopal Diocese of Western North Carolina, but it is self-supporting. The direct daily costs of operating are paid with guest fees and the generosity of the people who love this place. Donations make up the difference between fee income and the actual cost of stewardship. Donations provide the funds for capital improvements, major repairs, scholarships and program support. Without your generous contributions, this unique center would not be able to continue to be an affordable ministry of hospitality for all.
