Intentional Growth Center

Now in its 35th year, the Intentional Growth Center (IGC) serves as a continuing education and renewal center for both clergy and laity. IGC designs and offers courses and growth experiences at picturesque Lake Junaluska in the mountains of Western North Carolina, and in other locations throughout the country. Approximately 50 seminars and workshops are offered each year and more than 2,500 participants profit from sessions dealing with Bible studies, ministry skills, spiritual retreats, personal growth, and spiritual/ life coaching.

Atkins House is the historic second home of Bishop James Atkins, one of the founders of Lake Junaluska Assembly. Located at 959 North Lakeshore Drive, this three story house retains the charm of the early 1900’s while being in the heart of the Assembly’s missional activity. It houses the administrative offices of The Intentional Growth Center. Atkins House provides bed and breakfast facilities and a meeting room for individuals, families, or small groups.
