The depth of creativity, community and closeness to Creator I experienced at Kanuga was profound, I had never felt such deep connections before.
Linda Wiggen Kraft, workshop instructor for Faith, Art and Creative Expression
My life, like so many others, has been powerfully influenced by Kanuga’s programs. Years of participation at Kanuga nurtured me as a lay leader and offered me outstanding preparation for seminary and ordained ministry. As a new minister, I know I will continue to be formed at Kanuga for the changing needs of the Church.
