WHY WORK AT TRUETT?
We have a rich heritage tracing back to George W. Truett, a Baptist pastor who baptized over 25,000 people. Since 1954, Truett Conference Center & Camp has utilized his birthplace, almost 100 acres of beautiful Western North Carolina Mountains, as a Christian camp.
In the last two years we’ve had over 100 people accept Christ as their Lord and Savior at the camp, continuing the Truett tradition of bringing people to Christ. If you are excited to make an eternal impact in others’ lives apply today!
