Since the beginning of mission conferences back in 1990, we’ve supported well over 180 organizations in more than 50 countries with funding of over $1,500,000 – including over 100 organizations throughout Georgia, with the majority being from Dawson and Pickens Counties.

The 31st Broyles Mission Celebration gives us all the opportunity to celebrate our Chapel’s outreach and experience the work, goals, and accomplishments of supported organizations.
The Conference is self-funded and all proceeds are distributed to the presenting organizations. No Chapel funds are used.
Please pray for the featured organizations and their work, the planning committee, and your role in the success of this year’s meeting – a Chapel Legacy for 31 years.
Spotlight Organization: Hospital Art
The widely popular, PaintFest, is an annual event that brings families and friends together for a fun-filled time. No artistic experience is necessary. It is painting by color! Everything is provided: pre-drawn panels, paint, brushes, markers, aprons, and instructions. The completed art is then donated to a deserving hospital or care facility.
Established in 1984, the Foundation for Hospital Art is a non-profit entity dedicated to involving volunteers and patients throughout the world to create colorful, soothing artwork that when donated, helps soften the often-dreadful hospital experience. To date over 1,000,000 participants have created more than 50,000 paintings, in over 7,500 hospitals and nursing homes in 195 countries. “But we are not done,” explains John Feight, Founder of the Foundation for Hospital Art, and resident of Big Canoe. “Our quest is to donate at least one painting to every hospital on earth.”
Big Canoe Chapel is a PaintFest sponsor. The event is open to the entire Big Canoe community. This year’s event is scheduled the weekend of May 15 at the Wildcat Pavilion, from 9:00 till noon.
