As well, the Foundation provides resources and open source software for the local church.Contrary to popular belief that Lake Junaluska is named after the famous Cherokee Indian leader Chief Junaluska, the assembly is actually named after nearby Mount Junaluska (now North Eaglenest Mountain), which is itself named after Chief Junaluska.GeographyLake Junaluska is located at .
