Who we are
LeTourneau Christian Center is a 501(c)3 non-profit Christian ministry and conference facility founded in 1934. (Back then, our property was known as the “Tabernacle-on-the-Lake,” a special arm of the Interstate Evangelistic Association of NYC.) For a local news article in the Daily Messenger encompassing part of our history, click the link for Page 1 or Page 2. Since its inception, we’ve focused on furthering the gospel of Jesus Christ. Over the years we’ve provided a place for youth, adults and families connected with Christian churches, para-church ministries and mission organizations to get away from their usual environment to enjoy week-long or weekend camps or conferences, retreats, meetings, and training programs, as well as special events, such as dinner concerts, luncheons, and more.
LeTourneau Christian Center is located directly on the east shore of beautiful Canandaigua Lake, in the Finger Lakes region of upstate New York. We’re about 10 minutes south of the city of Canandaigua and about 1 hour south of downtown Rochester, and a little over an hour west of Syracuse. Need directions?
What we offer
We provide a relaxing get-away that remains close to nature and yet is only minutes from major attractions and shopping. LeTourneau has multiple accommodation options for all seasons and a modern kitchen and dining hall facility which seats about 300 for most any function. Our recreation hall on the lake side of the property is also well equipped for both summer and winter activities. During the summer, our lovely lake offers many opportunities for swimming, boating and other waterfront activities.
Who we serve
LeTourneau is dedicated to serving the people of Christ-centered churches, organizations, ministries and missionaries. We provide clean, wholesome facilities at budget-conscious rates. As booking allows, we can also accommodate individual families for quiet, spiritual retreats. LeTourneau is ideal for pastors or other church leaders to find a place of quiet time for prayer and introspection. We are not open to the general public.
