BMC is short for Bible and Missionary conference, something we’ve been doing at Beulah Beach for 100 years! 
Since 1921, Beulah Beach has held a Bible and Missionary Conference – and we haven’t lost our focus.  In fact, it’s a big as ever – biblical preaching, inspiring messages from international workers, something for all ages, entertainment and fellowship that your family will not want to miss. This year it’s our CENTURY CELEBRATION! 100 years of changed lives at Beulah Beach!

My Primary responsibility is to cooperate with the Holy Spirit’s leading in providing visionary, strategic, and directional leadership. I think we have assembled an amazing staff of servant-leaders. “Service as great as the lake,” is more than something we say! It is wonderful to serve alongside my wife and kids. I love what Beulah Beach is to families – we are committed to raising the next generation to take the word to the world.

One of my core values is fun! But the thing I enjoy the most is hearing of changed lives through camp ministry. I am a Beulah Beach bell ringer! As a boy I tried to ring the bell at midnight and got caught in the act. I surrendered my life to Christ at camp!

I have served as a pastor, an international worker, in the district and national office and now at Beulah Beach. I am convinced that God doesn’t speak any louder here, but many have told me that they tend to hear him better at Beulah Beach! Listen!

John first responded to the gospel of Jesus as a seven-year-old boy in his father’s Minnesota church. During the LIFE ’76 conference in St. Louis, John’s life opened up to the work of the Holy Spirit. “I live with a lifetime of gratitude for God’s continued pursuit,” he wrote.

John met his wife, Joanna, while in college, and they have been blessed by God with 38 years of marriage, three adult children, three grandsons, and two granddaughters.

Most of John’s 38 years of ministry have been as pastor, including Salem Alliance Church in Salem, Oregon. Through the years, he was an active sportsman and was often found with hiking boots, running shoes, tennis rackets, or fishing poles.

In 2008, a lifetime of health was interrupted by a mysterious illness that robbed John of his muscle strength and the ability to swallow. Joanna became his caregiver during the two year period of recovery. John’s ability to swallow was miraculously healed during this time, after which he was able to resume ministry.

In June 2013 at the Alliance Council in Tampa, Florida, John was elected the 12th president of the U.S. C&MA. He was re-elected to a second 4-year term at the 2017 Alliance Council in Columbus, Ohio. He and Joanna live in Colorado Springs, traveling frequently to serve the Alliance family.

Concert | Sunday PM

Aaron Shust is in relentless pursuit of beauty, and it is that which lies behind his musical experimentation, his writing, his public ministry, and his tenacious grip on God’s word. It has driven his music since the beginning, well before his early success when he was named the 2007 Songwriter of the Year and New Artist of the Year and wrote the Song of the Year, “My Savior My God.”

Despite Aaron’s celebration in worship that leads him to far-flung corners of the world, his heart is at home in Nashville, Tennessee, with his bride Sarah and their sons Daniel, Nicky, and Michael.

Shane & Shane

Shane & Shane

Concert | Tuesday PM

Learn more

After more than a decade of relentless touring, where the duo played everywhere from the college circuit to worship arenas to far-flung places, Shane & Shane have shifted the focus of their ministry. Rather than cramming as many dates on the calendar as demand will allow, the dynamic praise & worship duo, known for their celebrated guitar work and trademark harmonies, are pouring their lives into others, discipling musicians and training them in their craft.

Putting their convictions into practice, the result is The Worship Initiative. What began as an organic spark of an idea has developed into an online resource and community for all things worship. More than just a digital jukebox for worship geeks, however, The Worship Initiative is a one-stop shop for training, a hothouse environment where all musicians, worship leaders, budding songwriters can grow and flourish in their craft and creativity and devotion to the Lord.

It really began when the Whittaker’s found their family in America’s spotlight with appearances on shows like CBS Early Morning, The Today Show and more when their viral video “Single Ladies Devastation” went viral. But for Carlos, his wife Heather and their three children, this viral moment was just a snapshot of the bigger picture.

“Our family has experienced our share of moments both big and small. What we’ve learned is that every single one has played a pinnacle part in our lives. Each moment has built on to the next one and when we take a step back we see this incredible canvas that has been woven together.”
