Christian community, radical acceptance, unconditional love, and experiential learning are the core values that guide North Georgia Camp and Retreat Ministries, Inc. (NGCRM) in Dahlonega, Ga. NGCRM recently completed construction of a 20,000-square-foot Dining Hall thanks to the ‘Serving Generations Campaign’ and a loan from the Georgia United Methodist Foundation. The impact of this new addition has been huge, allowing NGCRM to simultaneously seat 465 people and serve everyone family-style in five minutes.

“Whether it’s around the table, in a worship service, out on the water, or 30 feet off the ground, we put 90+ years of experience into creating an environment where every moment is about practicing faith in Christian community,” said C. Russell Davis, Director of NGCRM. A 2016 survey reveals the spiritual impact NGCRM is making through its family of ministries.
