Who We Are:
In 1990, Kanuga Conference Center in Hendersonville, North Carolina announced an opportunity for an innovative conference to receive a one-time grant to offer it’s meeting at Kanuga. Kay Collier-Slone, Ph.D., a Director of Ministries with Single Adults in the Diocese of Lexington, KY., a counselor, consultant and psycho-social researcher and journalist, submitted a proposal for an Episcopal conference for single adults—and Solo Flight was born. 66 men and women from 22 dioceses, ranging in age from 28-79 attended the first conference. The following year, Solo Flight at Kanuga became an independent, (barely) self-sustaining conference using Kanuga facilities, and considering Kanuga the home base from which to fly and expand—still the only national conference for single adults in the Episcopal Church. As many as 36 dioceses coast-to-coast have been represented in a single year’s participants, with never less than 21 dioceses represented.
This year, for the first time, we meet at a location other than Kanuga. Solo Flight continues to soar in new directions.
