Announcements & News


A Stepping Stones 2020 Update - May 1, 2020

As MBC continues to monitor the status of the Coronavirus pandemic; it is apparent that this unprecedented global event has broader and longer lasting impacts than first anticipated. The leadership of MBC recognizes that these are times of uncertainty for everyone.

To comply with the Ontario government’s mandate for business closures, the MBC facilities, some area of operations and all guest activity remain on shutdown until May 12th, at the earliest. And we know that this may shift as we continue to assess ongoing government mandates for social isolation.

MBC continues to accept applications through our Stepping Stones online portal: however no interviews will be conducted at this time until further notice.

We will continue to update you as we have more details. We appreciate your prayers as important decisions are made on the vital ministry of MBC. Please know that we are praying for you and that God would keep you safe.

Please email us at if you have any questions.

INTERNship is an opportunity for Young Adults (18-25) to spend 8 months in a dynamic service and personal development experience with MBC (Muskoka Bible Centre). During this time, participants will be challenged to constantly grow in their faith, work ethic and life skills, and in relationships with others. Their 8 month term will be focussed on learning the ins and outs of service at camps and conference centres, through serving in food services, housekeeping, maintenance, program and more.

The Intern experience is enhanced by a cross-cultural service experience, serving at Campamento Roblealto in Costa Rica each January. Participants should expect to be part of an energetic and passionate team that will integrate and work alongside with the leadership of MBC. Regular Bible studies, camp ministry exposure, a tight-knit community, and practical life skills development will highlight the Intern experience.
