To begin the process, you will be asked to create an account. Once your account is complete, you will be taken to the application. The application is detailed and will take a couple of hours to complete. If you need to complete the application in stages, be sure to save the section you are in and resume there later. You may want to bookmark this page so you can easily get back to it. Once you submit your completed application, your references will be sent an automated email asking them to complete an online reference from.

If you have ever been a camper at Doe River Gorge, you may have trouble logging in. Because you were a camper, you already have a profile in our system without an email address or password.

Once you have finished the application and signed the Terms and Conditions , click "Check Out." Don’t worry—you will not be charged anything! This is just the final step in completing the registration. If you have any questions, call Josh at 423.725.4010 ext. 309 or email me.

  • “God is everywhere and His people are everywhere; but here, they gather and are of one mind, one body, and one action. It is Holy.”

  • “It is the hardest job you will ever love. You will be challenged and grown while being loved, encouraged, and poured into. It is a family, not a job; a community of believers coming alongside one another to further God’s kingdom.”

Ways to Leave a Lasting Legacy

A great way to leave a lasting legacy of support to Doe River Gorge is through your estate plans. Doe River Gorge would be happy to assist you in reviewing your estate plans to help you become a good steward of God's resources that He has entrusted to you. Doe River Gorge desires to assist you in creating a personalized estate design that would be most beneficial to you and your goals. This plan could include using giving vehicles such as current and deferred gift annuities, revocable and irrevocable life estate agreements, unitrust, annuity trusts, and both reversionary and non-reversionary lead trust.

Doe River Gorge is here to assist you! We would be happy to meet with you to discuss your stewardship goals. To request more information or to request a free copy of A Guide to Planning Your Estate, please call the Ministry Advancement Office at 423.725.4010 or e-mail your request.

The following gift methods are simple ways to make a lasting legacy:

Life Insurance: Donating a life insurance policy is a way to make a significant commitment to Doe River Gorge and is particularly appropriate for policies that are paid-up and no longer needed in your estate planning.

Home/ or Other Real Estate: Real estate gifts can provide a stable, long-term contribution to the Doe River Gorge and can compliment your overall estate plan. Real estate gift options include homes, farms, condominiums, undeveloped land, commercial property and other types of real estate. If you would like to discuss making a gift of appreciated real estate, please contact the Ministry Advancement Office at 423.725.4010.

Bequests: Through your Will, you can include charitable gifts in the form of specific property (i.e., cash, securities, works of art, etc.), a percentage of your estate or the residue of your estate. Your attorney can help you plan the most appropriate type of bequest when you make or update your Will.
