New Year's Celebration

December 30, 2016–January 1, 2017

Celebrate new beginnings as we ring in the New Year at Lake Junaluska!  Over two days, participants will enjoy engaging preaching and energizing worship, pared with a full day of skiing and a deejayed New Year's Eve party with all-you-can-eat pizza! Lake Junaluska offers incredible winter programming, while Cataloochee Ski Area, just minutes away from Lake Junaluska, provides excellent customer service, thrilling skiing, and convenience for our winter ski retreats.

Andy Lambert (Speaker), known as “the funniest man in youth ministry,” is a native of Pfafftown, NC. He received a B.A. in sociology from Appalachian State University and a Masters of Divinity from Duke Divinity School. Lambert has proclaimed the Gospel at comedy clubs, churches and colleges, traveling throughout the US, Mexico, Wales and England. Andy is currently serving at Mt. Tabor United Methodist Church in Winston-Salem.

Jimmy Atkins (Worship Band) hails from western NC, where he makes music in several different facets of life.  A worship pastor at a local church, a songwriter at home, and a storyteller abroad, he's gained his following through avenues such as speaking at conferences for the young and old alike, as well as leading the 10-year career of his band, Second Hand City. His most recent project, The Pen & The Page, is his first solo album. Playing anything from acoustic solo shows in the living rooms of homes anywhere to full band concerts with a flare for the conversational part of culture, Jimmy shares music, stories, and life with those he meets.
