Mountain Top is the perfect place for church groups to retreat to, as well as a place for full-time ministry families to grow closer to Christ and closer to each other.
It can be a life changing experience when you use one of our christian based life-enriching resources. Schedule one of our speakers to implement teaching sessions*, or use our self-guided video programs on your own.
* The subjects we will offer will be posted when we get closer to our re-opening date.
Mountain Top Experience's season generally runs from April through December each year.
Mountain Top Experience is a non-profit organization that was founded in 2000 by Martin and Joy Haymond. Their vision was to have a place for people to bond together while experiencing the majesty of God's creations in the beautiful Appalachian Mountains.
