We are pleased to announce the Larger Story Summit 2022 at the Billy Graham Training Center in Asheville, NC, March 4th – 6th.
Larger Story invites you to join us for a celebration of God’s life through Dr. Larry Crabb. Hosted by The Billy Graham Training Center at the Cove in Asheville, NC, this Legacy Event will mark the one-year anniversary of Larry’s arrival in heaven. The dates are March 4-6, 2022. Join us as we remember Larry, interact around the truths that have impacted our lives, and hear about the direction of Larger Story as we seek to advance his message to the next generation.
- Double Occupancy ($459 per person) – Select this option if you plan to room with a spouse, friend or are open to having a roommate (all rooms have two queen beds). Both spouses will need to register separately to reserve each person’s spot.
- Single Occupancy ($629) – Select this option if you are attending by yourself and would like the extra privacy (Spaces are limited).
Meet & Greet Luncheon ($15) – Optional drop-in lunch for those who will be arriving on Friday between 12 – 1:30p and would like to have a meal available as well as the opportunity to catch up with old friends.
Ministry Vision Luncheon (Free) – Optional luncheon Sunday from 12- 1:15pm where the Larger Story team will be sharing where they sense God is leading the ministry in the coming years and inviting the attendees to consider partnering financially to help the ministry to equip more people to put Jesus on display in how they relate.
We hope this event enables you to:
- (Re)connect with people who have experienced the transformational concepts Larry taught (at the Schools of Spiritual Direction, NextStep or through his writings);
- Remember the teacher and companion who taught truths and methods that have shaped our relationship with God and with others;

About Larger Story
Our Vision and Mission
At Larger Story, we are joining with Heaven to tell the beautiful story of redemption and restoration. It spans from before time – from the birth of the earth, to Christ’s life, death and resurrection – to today. God invites us to tell His Larger Story, the over-arching narrative that unites all of history. Deeper and wider than merely a collection of events, this story’s meaning is only realized when we see it as relational.
We aim to offer spiritually hungry people online resources and support based on Dr. Larry Crabb’s gospel-centered relational framework. Our resources help you go deeper to discover and live in the love story God is telling. We equip individuals, groups and churches to courageously face what makes meaningful and lasting community difficult and to break through those obstacles to live with purpose and power.
