WNCC Fishin’ Hole
The Conference Resource Center

The WNCC Fishin’ Hole is here to loan resources to United Methodist churches in the Western North Carolina Conference. Our mission is to provide “a deep well of engaging, relevant books and media supporting the mission of the local church in making disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world.”

The Fishin’ Hole materials are managed and supported by Surpass Support, a system often used in public schools and libraries. The online catalog:  is open to all for browsing, either by subject, author or title. The Explore tab, lists of topics, new resources, and popular resources help to narrow down the search.
