Xplicit -No Room For Doubt

Every year the Smoky Mountain Bible Conference seems to grow larger and this year may break all previous attendance records. The  theme this year will be  “Xplicit -No Room For Doubt” and the conference will be broken up into four different venues. There is no set itinerary that I could find online, it seems the individual groups and their leaders will know where they need to be and when each day.

Smoky Mountain Convention Center:  4010 Parkway Pigeon Forge, TN, 37863

The Sevierville Convention Center:  202 Gists Creek Rd Sevierville, TN 37876  .
