Glisson offers a wide range of meeting spaces for your retreat group.
We can accommodate a variety of group sizes as well as audio-visual needs.
Bob Cagle Program Center
Modeled after a stamp mill, the Cagle Center offers one large partition-able meeting room with a ceiling-mounted projector (HDMI input) and a wireless microphone. There are also two smaller meeting rooms (on the 2nd floor), a catering kitchen, elevator access to all three floors, and a patio overlooking Cane Creek Falls.
Creekview Meeting Room
Creekview is conveniently located on the lower level of our new Dining Hall, adjacent to the coffee lounge, camp store, and prayer chapel.
The space has wi-fi and a ceiling-mounted projector (HDMI input) and a wireless microphone. The meeting room opens up to a hallway with a view of Cane Creek and easy access to a covered rocking chair porch.
Jimmy & Julie Moor Program Center
Glisson alumni will remember our former dining hall, which has now been converted into meeting space. The main meeting area can accommodate up to 200 people, with seating for 160. The space is equipped with a ceiling-mounted projector (HDMI input) and a wireless microphone. There is also a small meeting area in the back for a group of 30. A gathering area on the stone front porch features a large fireplace.
This space is in the lower level of the Program Center (former dining hall). It has a sound-resistant ceiling, new windows and carpet, and flat-screen TVs for multimedia use.
Ivie Meeting Room
Groups staying in Ivie Lodge also get the Ivie Meeting Room (with fireplace and porch) as well as two small break-out rooms. The main meeting room is equipped with a ceiling-mounted projector (HDMI input) and easily holds the full lodging capacity of Ivie. The adjacent Ivie field is large enough for most group games.
Originally built as an open-air structure in 1950, the Chapel underwent a major renovation in 2019 to preserve and expand it as Glisson’s primary worship gathering space for generations to come. The Path of Silence and surrounding benches offer a place for groups to prepare for worship or break into small groups afterward.
Holland Activities Building
A short walk from the Village cabins, the Holland Building is a large, heated gym that’s great for group games in colder months. There is also a stage that some groups choose to contract with an A/V company to use for a worship band.
Sparrowwood Meeting Room
Sparrowwood Lodge comes with its own private meeting room, able to accommodate its lodging capacity. The meeting room has large windows that look out onto Cane Creek. A rocking chair porch serves as a great free-time space.
The stone Prayer Chapel, located underneath the Dining Hall, is available for smaller groups to have a time of prayerful reflection.
Swofford Amphitheater provides a peaceful setting for worship and campfires on the banks of Lake Hale.
There are numerous fire rings on the Glisson campus, perfect for both peaceful evening worship and making s’mores.
