Historic Conference Center Opens to All Non Profit Groups & Weddings

Crystal Conference Center announces its doors are open to all non profit groups as well as couples seeking a retreat, conference, or wedding venue.


Crystal Conference Center, located on the shore of Crystal Lake, used primarily over the past 100 years by members of the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) Region of Michigan churches, is now making the conference center available to all non-profit groups who are looking for day use, weekend workshop & conference space, family reunions, weddings, or week-long rentals.

Neil Topliffe, spokesperson for the site says, “Crystal Conference Center has been a pivotal place for so many people of all ages, but as we change with the times, we look forward to sharing this beautiful site with any non-profit group that would like to gather and needs a place to do so.”

“With the beauty of Crystal Lake, this facility makes a very picturesque backdrop for beautiful wedding photos.
