Sanctuary for the Spirit

Welcome to Elijah’s Harbor

Christian Retreat Center in Tennessee

The Old Testament account of Elijah shares how the prophet, when faced with the trials and stresses of the world, would seek sanctuary in the mountains – to step back and draw closer to God. Today, Elijah’s Harbor invites you to find sanctuary in the mountains, away from the distractions of the world.

Whether you come as a family to escape from the busy schedule of life, with a church group for spiritual refreshment, or with a business group for team building and strategy, Elijah’s Harbor is passionate about serving you and meeting your needs.

Mission Statement: Elijah’s Harbor exists to serve Christian families, pastors, ministry workers, and leaders by providing a place for respite and renewal resulting in stronger relationships with God, family, and others.
