We host three lectures per year, one in the spring, one in the summer and one in the fall at the Hoag Auditorium at the University of North Georgia in Dahlonega, GA.If you have an interest or curiosity about how Christianity and other religions developed and the challenges they face in the 21st century, you will want to join us at Mountain Top Lectures.
