Renew in the Smokies

Renew in the Smokies logoAs we transition to our new name of Renew in the Smokies, all the programming you’ve come to appreciate so much will remain the same. In 2024, Tommy and John thomas Oaks will start the week off on Monday evening. Drew Mentzer, retired senior minister of the Second Church of Christ in Danville, Illinois, and a trustee at Johnson will be the guest preacher on Tuesday evening. On Wednesday evening, Tyson Chastain will emcee a fun-filled “game night” followed by Clyde Dorkman. The Hall Sisters will be the special entertainment Thursday evening. Dr. Smith will be leading a Bible study each morning, followed by a variety of workshops. Join us for a time of fun, fellowship, and inspiration!
