LAKE JUNALUSKA, N.C. – Lake Junaluska Assembly is seeking qualified applicants for the position of Lake Junaluska Assembly Executive Director. Since June 2000, Rev. Dr. Jimmy L.

“One of the things we want to communicate is that Lake Junaluska has a long history and time honored traditions, but it faces the challenge of moving into the 21st century and to become a premier conference and retreat center,” said Bishop Goodpaster. “I think the opportunity is really exciting going into the future, and we will build on previous executive directors such as Jimmy Carr’s 11 years of experience. Upon his retirement, it’s time for us to look to the future in creative ways.”
The Lake Junaluska Executive Committee are looking for the following qualifications in a candidate: A proven track record of entrepreneurial skills and success in fund raising development in leading a multi-faceted business toward financial stability; possession of leadership skills necessary to guide a not-for-profit United Methodist Christian retreat center, and the ability to serve a clear sense of God’s call for this ministry of leading a time-honored organization into a relevant and engaging future.
