The first Seabrook Singles Conference was held in November 1991, sponsored by Summerville Bible Fellowship
in Summerville, SC and hosted by Skip and Cathy Elliott.
Since assemblies of believers are typically small in numbers with few single adults, and summer camps and
retreats are directed more to high school and college groups, it was our motivation to reach out to those
singles who were past college age and engaged in the work world.
After that first Fall Conference many of the attendees requested that it be held again in the Spring, and
after our 1992 gathering we decided to continue to host these Conferences twice each year in the will of the
Lord. Now in 2011 we look back and are thankful to our Lord for allowing this event to continue to minister
to the single adults in our New Testament churches.
Our desire is to promote the truths found in the precious Word of God in a setting which allows attendees
to have a respite from the pressures of their day-to-day world. Fun, fellowship, and a fervent study of the
Word are the hallmarks of the weekend. While there is a great deal of fun and fellowship, the primary
emphasis is always on the study of God's Word.
What We Believe
We believe that the Bible is the inerrant inspired Word of God, and that it is the "Power of God unto
salvation." We believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God, whose death on the cross and subsequent
resurrection paid the debt for our sins. It is only through faith in Jesus Christ and the forgiveness of
sins that one can be assured of eternity in heaven with God.
Seabrook Island is a barrier island resort off the coast of Charleston, SC. One area of the island is a
Camp and Conference Center owned and operated by the Episcopal Diocese of South Carolina. The Diocese rents
their facilities to groups outside the Episcopal Church and provides the conference with a beautiful and
The camp stretches along the mouth of the Edisto River where it comes into the Atlantic Ocean. Anyone
who has attended the conference will attest to the complimentary dimension the setting contributes to the
overall weekend experience. Overnight quarters, interconnected by wooden boardwalks, are located just off
the beach. Our study sessions are convened in an old rustic chapel also next to the water.
Tennis courts, basketball courts, a gym and a sand volleyball court are all available for use during free
time. Other popular activities include swimming, walking on the beach, and hiking through the marsh.
In addition, there is usually an opportunity to participate in a bonfire and testimony time one evening.
