  • FCF retreats are a covenant experience. The event process truly depends on every person's promised presence and participation. Every adult and confirmand must be able to attend from the beginning of the first session (8:00) Friday evening to the end of the last session (11:00) Sunday morning. 
  • Except for traffic delays, sickness or family emergencies, no participant (other than a pastor) may join the event after it begins or leave at any time during the event.
  • At least one adult must accompany every 5 confirmands.
  • Registration is a 3-step process. First, click on the form below for your event, then complete and submit the form. Please note, every line must have an entry or the "submit" button will not send the form. If the form went through, you will get an immediate verification at the top of the page.
  • Second, a non-refundable deposit of $70 per participant (adults & youth) is required to register your group. After you register, you will be contacted by Gloria and instructed to send your deposit check payable to "Foundation For Christian Formation" to Gloria Hughes, The Foundation For Christian Formation, 430 Quail Lane, West Jefferson, NC 28694. Your registration can not be confirmed until we receive your deposit.
  • Third, after you submit your form, contact the Reservations Team of Lake Junaluska (800.222.4930) to secure on-campus lodging and/or meals for the weekend. Your event balance (your lodging and/or meals) will be due and payable to Lake Junaluska Assembly.
  • On campus housing options include: Mountainview Lodge, Hillside Lodge, Junaluska Apartments, Brookside Lodge (group housing option), Cokesbury Lodge (group housing option) and Junaluska Lodge (group housing option). 
  • If you chose to stay off campus or in private housing, the Foundation is charged a commuter fee (grounds and facility usage) of $10 per person by Lake Junaluska Assembly. This fee will be added to your deposit (your registration fee will then be $80 per person). Meal plans (for commuters) are available at Jones Dining Hall at Lake Junaluska at a cost of $46 + tax per person. To purchase these meal tickets, contact the Lake Junaluska Reservation Team at the number listed above at least 30 days prior to the event. 
  • Check in is 6:30-7:30 pm Friday at Shackford Hall. Plan your travel to arrive on time. Ahead of time, if possible. 
  • Eventsbegin 8:00 Friday evening and conclude 11:00 Sunday morning.
  • Each event is limited to 176 participants and registration for the event will close when we are full. Keep a close eye on the "space" remaining for your event. If specific dates are critical to your group's participation, register as early as possible. Registration opens on August 1st, 2019. Last year, we already had over 300 registrations by August 10th!
