Ridgecrest’s beautiful 1,300 acre campus climbs from valley to mountaintop, offering elegant comfort in guest lodging and meeting space for over 2,000 people.Since its founding almost one-hundred years ago, Ridgecrest, a Christ-centered ministry, has welcomed millions of guests. Its spacious facilities are the choice location for conferences and events from 10 to 2,000.

Ridgecrest’s campus offers an abundance of recreational opportunities including tennis, volleyball, basketball, and miniature golf. Some of the most beautiful hiking trails wind through the mountainside campus offering spectacular views of the Carolina horizon. Fine dining and shopping can be found just minutes down the road in nearby Asheville, or conference attendees can stroll through the delightful arts and crafts community of neighboring Black Mountain.

LifeWay Ridgecrest Conference Center is truly unique. There are no olympic-sized swimming pools on campus. There are no television sets inside the hotel rooms. Ridgecrest is cool afternoon walks on winding trails with family or friends. Conference participants resting under a shady porch sharing ideas from that morning’s session or ministry staffs building a greater sense of teamwork during adventure recreation.

Ridgecrest is where people come to look into the mountains – and listen to God. Lives suddenly change. Priorities become realigned. And organizational goals give way to God’s perfect will.

If are a meeting planner seeking the ideal location for your next conference or event, a pastor or ministry leader preparing a personal or staff retreat, or a family looking for a unique mountain vacation, Ridgecrest invites you to experience the rustic charm that is found in these mountains, and the spiritual peace that is found in our Lord Jesus Christ.
