About Us

History

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. In May of 2014, after much prayer, it was decided to change the conference to once a year, keeping the May date. We now look back over the years since this conference was begun and are thankful to our Lord for allowing this event to continue to minister to the single adults in our New Testament churches.

 

Mission

Chapel

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.

 

Accommodations

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 convenient location.

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.
