EDITORIAL: The Pinnacle Retreat Center may be just right for your next conference


A group of campers enjoy activities on the small lake at the Pinnacle Retreat Center.

The mental image painted in a recent article about the Pinnacle Retreat Center near Clayton, Georgia, is one of breathtaking beauty.

Butterflies flittering on a warm summer breeze. Songbirds calling to one another from towering pines and leafy oaks. Geese floating lazily on a glassy pond. Mountains rising skyward.

It’s little wonder, the article said, people feel so close to God at the Georgia Baptist getaway.

For some people, this is where they made their decisions to become Christians. For others, it’s where they surrendered their lives to become missionaries. For all, it’s a place where they sense the nearness of God.

The Baptist Woman’s Missionary Union of Georgia, an auxiliary of the Georgia Baptist Convention, operates the retreat center, and members don’t want it to be the best kept secret in the state. They want churches and nonprofit groups to use it for retreats, for conferences, for youth group activities, for times of team-building.

The Pinnacle is a modern, full-service facility that includes a two-story lodge with 36 rooms, all of which have private baths. It has a dining hall that can accommodate 200 people. It has six large cabins that have bedrooms on each end and a meeting room in the middle. Each cabin can accommodate 28 people.

“It’s one of the most tranquil, peaceful places you can find,” said Beth Ann Williams, Lead Strategist for Georgia Baptist Women. “It’s one of those places where God left his thumbprint on creation. It’s impossible to spend time here without sensing God’s presence. This place is truly special.”

Perhaps you want to book a stay for your staff from your organization at the Pinnacle. Perhaps you want to support the Pinnacle ministry. You can learn more at pinnacleretreatcenter.com.
