Great Banquet

Welcome to the Northern Virginia Great Banquet Community

We are a growing community of believers who seek to spread the Good News of Jesus Christ. The Northern Virginia Great Banquet Community (Nova GB) hosts 3-day weekend events during which guests explore their faith and personal relationship with Jesus. Guests are able to shut out the noise and distractions of the world and dedicate a period of time to their faith. The weekends are personal events, for personal growth.

A Great Banquet weekend is truly a wondrous banquet of many courses, beyond what you might experience in a retreat! Yet, while the weekend is spent in fellowship, guests can choose to share as much about their faith as they like. We ask only that you participate.

Interested? Take a look around our web site to find out more information about The Great Banquet!
