Who We Are

The Cannon Beach Christian Conference Center is located on the spectacular north Oregon coast, 75 miles NW of Portland in the beautiful resort town of Cannon Beach, consistently named one of the top ten beaches in the nation.

Cannon Beach Conference Center offers an exciting year-round program of Christ-centered family and adult conferences and programs for all ages! Our summer family conferences have been a popular vacation destination for decades!

In addition to our conferences, we host over 150 Christian retreat groups each year including International Renewal Ministries, numerous Northwest churches and parachurch organizations.

Cannon Beach Conference Center employs over 60 full time year round staff and over 80 summer staff. If you would like more information on employment opportunities with us, click on our employment page.

CBCC is also the location of Ecola Bible College, a unique short-term Bible college that combines a relaxed setting, family atmosphere, and exceptional teaching.

In recent years, CBCC acquired the Ecola Creek Lodge Motel which is open to the public for short term vacation stays. The lodge features cozy, well-appointed rooms and is within a short walk to both the beach and downtown shopping.

Founded in 1945, the Cannon Beach Christian Conference Center has grown from humble beginnings to its place as one of the premier Christian retreat and conference centers on the West Coast. With a full-time staff of more than sixty dedicated men and women, Cannon Beach Conference Center is committed to providing a friendly, comfortable atmosphere where God’s people can find refreshment and renewal.
