The West Virginia Convention of Southern Baptists tent is available for use by churches, associations, and missions cooperating with the WVCSB.
SIZE + SEATING CAPACITY
The tent can be assembled in three sizes. (There is only one tent.)
- The 38’ round tent will hold approximately 75 people.
- The 38’ x 62’ tent will hold approximately 200 people.
- The 38’ x 86’ tent will hold up to 350 people.
While tents are expensive to purchase and maintain, the WVCSB seeks to offer the tent as economically as possible. Therefore, a $150 user fee is charged each time the tent is used.
The fee is the same whether used one day or 15 days, and covers the costs of maintenance for the tent and the cost of a tent coordinator to supervise the setting up and taking down of the tent.
SCHEDULING THE TENT
The tent may be scheduled for a maximum of nine days by a church or mission. For an associational or area revival, the tent may be scheduled for a maximum of fifteen days.
All requests for scheduling must be made on the form below, and must be completed in full and returned with check payable to the West Virginia Convention of Southern Baptists to confirm dates. All requested dates will be confirmed on a first come-first served basis.
The user of the tent assumes full responsibility for the tent while on their site. The cost of any repairs is the sole responsibility of the church or association using the tent. Please report all damages immediately to the WVCSB. The WVCSB assumes no liability for injuries or damage due to the use of the tent.
All civil and utility permits are the sole responsibility of the tent user. A copy of the fire proofing certificate will be provided after the tent application has been received.
The user is required to have eight strong people present to assist in setting up the tent properly. Any less may cause a forfeit in the use of the tent.
The user is required to have liability insurance (a minimum $300,000 bodily injury and $50,000 property damage) for your protection during the use of the tent. Contact your insurance company to assist you with this matter
