Pastor Charles Nelson

Just a word from your host…

As a Southern Baptist Pastor, I was always looking for someplace to take my people where I knew they would be entertained, laugh out loud and NOT be embarrassed by the shows. I always wanted to get a good return for money spent. I found some great places, but I also wanted a place that had a spiritual impact as well. So I decided to create the very best value possible with as much included as possible. I’ve tried to do all the planning so all you have to do is gather your group and bring them to Pigeon Forge. I know you and your group will enjoy this event!
-Pastor Charles Nelson
