“Do you not know? Have you not heard? The Lord is the everlasting God, the Creator of the ends of the earth. He will not grow tired or weary, and his understanding no one can fathom. He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak. Even youths grow tired and weary, and young men stumble and fall; but those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.” Isaiah 40:28-31
For over 57 years Eagle Eyrie has been a place for renewal and inspiration in Virginia Baptist life. Hundreds of persons now scattered across the world experienced God in a powerful way through the ministry of Eagle Eyrie. Countless numbers of people have committed their lives to evangelism, missions, church leadership, and denominational service atop the hills of this Lynchburg treasure.
Others have found Eagle Eyrie to be a place for spiritual respite, growth and creative silence, as well as a life-giving resource for ongoing spiritual development. It is reported that a few Virginia Baptists even met the person they would later marry at an Eagle Eyrie event! You may be one of those persons!
The renewal of the 16 rooms in the Voight Center at Eagle Eyrie is the first installation of our new invitation to “Come Home to Eagle Eyrie.” We want Eagle Eyrie to be the best retreat and conference center on the east coast! In order for this dream to come true, we are working to ensure all of our accommodations are in first class condition.
You can play a significant role in the history of Eagle Eyrie through your gift of $5,000.00 for the restoration of one room in the Voight Conference Center. Plan to dedicate the room to someone you love—past, present or future.
Give a room in honor of a significant person in your spiritual walk. A church can sponsor a room as an ongoing witness to the great ministry Eagle Eyrie offers to Virginia and the world. Let the Spirit lead you.
