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 - $230,000 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.
$140,000 will support our Stepping Stones Youth Discipleship experience that intentionally impacts over 110 youth each year who are grounded in Biblical truth while also serving our guests in various capacities.
$260,000. 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. $160,000 is needed to help support these camper scholarships provided by MBC and another $100,000 will support strategic leadership development and facility improvement initiatives.

$20,000 budgeted for general administration costs (marketing, technology, etc.)
Camp Widjiitiwin has suffered from many years of deferred maintenance and so there is an urgency to invest more consistently into this facility each year to support the growing impactful ministry that Widji is experiencing.
Our objective will be to raise $50,000 annually to support facility enhancements. These funds will be over and above the annual operating and basic capital improvement funding needed. Facility improvements specifically in support of the bible teaching and evangelistic ministry of Camp Widjiitiwin will be funded by MBF donations. However, in 2020 we have a significant kitchen renovation project to complete and so our target for capital and strategic funding is $75,000.
We are so close to eradicating the debt that has burdened MBC for so long. In 2009 we had just over $5.3 million in debt. At the end of 2019 our debt dropped below $700,000! This is an amazing story of God’s consistent provision through His generous people and wisdom in being good stewards of the resources God has given us here at MBC. This debt can be reduced to ZERO by raising $450,000 over the next two years plus achieving the planned $100,000 in operating surplus in support of debt reduction. Wouldn’t you love to help us get to ZERO?
Please contact John Friesen for more information on how you can help us reduce this debt to ZERO by end 2021!
