Kids & Youth Ministry - $200,000 will support a teaching-focused children and youth program that reaches over 1,800 children and youth each summer. Your investment allows us to hire and train a quality team of leaders who care and model the life of Christ to these children and youth.
Bible Teaching Ministry - $300,000 ensures that our Bible teaching and worship of God in all of our summer and non-summer programming is built on a clear exposition of the Gospel. We offer the equivalent of 2 years of Sunday services packed into one summer, PLUS various retreats throughout the year. We have seen the truth fulfilled that the Word of God accomplishes its purpose.
$125,000 will support our Stepping Stones Youth Discipleship experience that intentionally impacts over 100 youth each year who are grounded in Biblical truth while also serving our guests in various capacities.
$225,000. MBC (parent organization) sees the tremendous Kingdom value that comes when youth from marginalized communities are given a chance to attend a week of Christ centred camp. Each gift of $475 to the Foundation will be matched by Muskoka Bible Centre to sponsor one camper to come to camp, supporting more than 350 campers from 5 different communities in Guelph, Toronto and Hamilton each summer. About $150,000 is needed to help cover the cost of the camper scholarships. The reminaing $75,000 will be used for leadership development and strategic facility improvements.

$15,000 budgeted for general administration costs (marketing, technology, etc.)
We are so close to eradicating the debt that has burdened MBC for so long. In 2009 we had just over $5.8 million in long term debt. At the end of 2020 our long-term debt dropped below $50,000!
This is an amazing story of God’s consistent provision through His generous people, plus faithful stewardship of the resources God has given us here at MBC.
Our desire is to completely eliminate our remaining long-term debt in 2021, and to also pay out the remaining $500,000 in bond debt which is used to help fund the short-term seasonal cash needs of our operations.
Would you help us eliminate the debt and build a firm foundation for future Kingdom impact? Your gift to the Foundation will be applied toward the bond debt in our parent entity. Over time, the parent entity will return these funds to the Ministry entity for the advancement of our Mission of helping to create Resilient, Biblically-rooted families.
And here is the GREAT NEWS – we have a donor that is willing to match up to $250,000 toward this project! So – anything you give will be doubled toward our goal of $500,000.
Please contact John Friesen for more information on how you can help us reduce this debt to ZERO by end 2021!
