(and tons of FUN IN THE SNOW) 

Accelerant is a worship & discipleship experience for teens hosted in Gatlinburg, Tennessee.




LUKE 24 

Accelerant exists to challenge and encourage teens to know who they are in Christ and to live that out everyday in His presence and power. While our society has one careless way of shaping the hearts and desires of young people, Jesus has a far better Way. Not only does He love you, but He also has a calling for you - an incredible purpose lived out as the Holy Spirit empowers & equips. That's the message of Accelerant. God wants to light a fire in your heart. And we want to fan the flame. Join us for worship, teaching and fun on the slopes of OBER GATLINBURG
