Fast Break to Mission

Monday, March 12, 2018 to Friday, March 16, 2018

Fast Break to Mission allows for North Georgia pastors to serve a missional need in a location that is easily accessible from Atlanta and North Georgia. You can come for two days or you can come for the whole week. Come and serve and leave when you need to.

You can stay for FREE at one of the facilities provided by the North Carolina Conference. These facilities will have beds and bathrooms. OR you can stay at one of nearby chain hotels (Fairfield Inn, Holiday Inn, etc) and pay for this yourself. We trust that YOU will take responsibility for making your own reservations.


If you're staying at one of the area hotels, they usually provide breakfast. But if you're not staying at a hotel, breakfast and lunch will be provided. Dinners will be your responsibility.

If you want to bring your personal tool belt, you can. But the North Caroline Conference will provide the tools you'll need for the work we will be assigned. We do recommend that you bring your own "work gloves."
