With the increased draw from throughout the Southeast, the need for a site to serve those in the deeper south was recognized. Several years were spent searching for the perfect space. In 2003 the Southeastern Synod of the ELCA approved a capital campaign to raise funds to establish this camp and conference center in north Georgia or north Alabama.
In 2007, the Lutheranch property was purchased and includes 519 acres near Tallapoosa, GA.
From 2006-2009 The “Challenge” campaign raised $3.6 million for land acquisition and to provide the Holy Trinity house which is a small retreat center serving up to 25 people at one time.
Lutheranch is currently in the beginning phases of a new Campaign to raise funds to build program ministry facilities and fund the land acquisition at Lutheranch.
