The TFI Director's Summit

TFI invites all TFI program directors to our annual Directors Summit at Wayfloy Mountain Village, Gatlinburg, TN, June 6-9, 2017 (June 5-9 for new Directors).  

This Summit is designed by directors and for directors who uniquely understand the call and commitment of shepherding Fellows through a radically formational year. In this beautiful setting, directors will have much-needed space to rest, reflect, and enjoy the encouragement, wisdom, and friendship from fellow directors at the close of each program year. This year we will again have Rev. Dr. Bill Fullilove lead us in a professional development workshop. The Summit will also provide ample time for prayer, biblical teaching, relationship building, fun, and R&R. In all this, we will worship almighty God. 

TFI offers the Summit to directors free of charge as a gift to you in appreciation for your selfless commitment to your Fellows and he Fellows community. 

However, because we are penalized for late cancellations, TFI is asking that every director submit a REFUNDABLE $100 deposit to hold your space this year. The deposit will be refunded to all who attend at the close of the Summit. If you need to change your plan at the last minute, we understand, however this deposit will help us cover the cost of your unused room. 

Checks can be mailed to:
