Savannah Baptist Assembly

Located in Southwest Effingham County, just minutes west of historic Guyton, the Savannah Baptist Assembly is a retreat and recreation center owned and operated by the Savannah Baptist Association. Opened in 1967, the Savannah Baptist Assembly is dedicated to the Glory of God to build Christian character and help individuals find and rightly respond to God’s will for their lives.

Ministry Goals

1) to provide a facility and an atmosphere that is conducive to the rest and renewal of God’s people;

2) to be an instrument that our churches may use to evangelize, encourage, train, and mature the brethren; and

3)to provide Christians with a place for ministry and service.

It is our desire that the Savannah Baptist Assembly be a quiet place of rest and renewal. Come to the Savannah Baptist Assembly and renew your spirit, re-establish a connection with God’s wonderful creation, and enjoy wholesome recreation and fellowship with friends and/or family. Play tennis, enjoy a game of volleyball, take a swim in the 30’ x 60’ pool (open May-August), play horseshoes, basketball, or softball, or just sit quietly and enjoy the tranquility.
