Where we can escape – together – just you and us.

October 11-13, 2021

Ridgecrest Conference Center | Ridgecrest, NC

Music. Worship. Fellowship.

Check-in begins at 4:00 p.m. on Monday

Escape with us to the Blue Ridge Mountains!

Every year, there are events we look forward to because they give us time with you.  On a cruise, we get to enjoy beautiful destinations and fellowship with each other and many others in Gospel Music over the course of five days.  At the MTQ Homecoming, we get to spend a short weekend with you and share the stage with some of our dearest friends in our home state of Alabama.  But we wanted to add one more…something different.  Something where we could escape the stress of daily life together – just you and us.  That is the focus of our new event, Mountain Escape.

Three days with you.
No one else.
In the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains.
With the music we both love.
Making memories that will last a lifetime.

The beauty of the Blue Ridge Mountains will be the backdrop for our mountain escape. We will enjoy concerts, corporate worship, devotions from Mark, and make life-long friendships with fellow believers.

We are hosting our escape at the Ridgecrest Conference Center, nestled just outside Asheville, North Carolina with easy access off Interstate 40, the retreat is just a day’s drive from over 15 states.
