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.

Keynote Speaker | Sunday AM
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!
Keynote Speaker | Sunday Missions
Zach Meerkreebs has the goal in life to be the most grateful person in the room. His gratitude is founded in the gift of Jesus and the Gospel, the joy of being married to Kristin, and being the proud father of three girls; Eden, Esther, and Mercy.
After growing up Jewish and experiencing life in a broken home, Zach met Jesus through the witness and courage of his friends and their families who loved Jesus boldly around him. Since meeting Jesus, Zach has had the joy of planting churches, traveling the world as a missionary, investing in leaders, ministering on college campuses, and pastoring in the local church. His passion is to help identify and develop emerging leaders for future Kingdom impact and has recently done that as a part of Envision, a ministry of the Christian & Missionary Alliance. Zach’s latest adventure with Jesus was catalyzed by his participation in a unique outpouring of God’s Spirit at Asbury University in February, 2023 which has catalyzed traveling to universities and communities around our nation and the world to testify and spur on hunger and pursuit of God’s mission through awakening and renewal.
Zach currently lives in Lexington, KY with his wife and girls and is excited to continue to watch and participate in what God is doing around the world.
Concert | Sunday PM
Since I grew up near the sea, I was fascinated with sailing and thought it would be exciting to work as a ship captain. When I completed my mandatory Israeli army service at the age of 21, I decided to pursue my dream of becoming a boat captain. At the age of 24, I began piloting tugboats in the Haifa port.
While piloting the boats, I was exposed to God’s Word every day as pastors preached about Yeshua (Jesus in Hebrew) to their congregations on the boats. I was impressed by their prayers and moved by their worship songs. People on the boats also told me about Yeshua and prayed for me and I could always feel the presence of the Holy Spirit. For five years, I pondered what I heard about Yeshua. Then after 5 years i woke up with a great love to Yeshua.
Music has always been a major part of my life. I have played the drums since my youth. After I met Yeshua, my interest in music expanded to include both the singing and the composition of worship songs.
In 2002, I started a music ministry called Hebrew Worship Songs in which I began translating popular English worship songs to Hebrew and recording them. I wanted believers to hear the songs they loved in our Lord’s language, and I wanted Israelis to hear about Yeshua through my music.
In October 2007, we dedicated our first worship boat, FAITH, and officially opened Sea of Galilee Worship Boats Ltd. to be a blessing to believers from many countries around the world and to Israelis here at home.
Keynote Speaker | Monday AM/PM
Ryan Dobson is leading a rebellion not for the faint of heart. It’s a rebellion that fights for the hearts and souls of parents and families. Our culture has been tipped on its head over the past 20 years, and therefore the approach to helping families get healthy has to be profound. It was this mindset and understanding of culture that prompted Ryan and his wife, Laura, to found REBEL Parenting. Ryan has combined his natural abilities and passion for public speaking to significantly engage and challenge parents and families in every stage of life but in a revolutionary way. NOTHING is “off the table.” The old rules about “What you can & can’t talk about” have been thrown out the window!! The state of marriage and parenting is in such a state that “leading a rebellion” may be the most effective way to bring healing and help. It is this atmosphere of total honestly, grace, truth and love that the messiness of this life can finds wholeness.

Keynote Speaker | Wednesday AM
Kamryn Babb was a four-star recruit coming out of Christian Brothers College High School in St. Louis, Missouri, and the 13th-ranked wide receiver in the 2018 recruiting class.
When he enrolled to play for the Buckeyes, the future seemed bright.
BDespite the promise he showed on the high school gridiron, Babb’s collegiate career was derailed by numerous knee injuries. Babb missed both the 2018 and the 2019 seasons with a two separate ACL injuries in each knee, but was able to play in seven of Ohio State’s games during the COVID-shortened 2020 season.
Babb was on track to play in 2021, but another ACL injury cost him that season. Even though Babb missed that entire season, he was voted a team captain by his teammates.
He has gone through four knee surgeries since his senior year of high school.
In August head coach Ryan Day seemed optimistic that he would see the field sometime during 2022:
Babb was cleared to return to the field, and suited up with his teammates for a game against the Hoosiers With the Buckeyes in control in the second half, Babb took the field with the offense, and quarterback C.J. Stroud looked his way. His first collegiate catch went for a touchdown.
