Hello from CBCC!
Founded in 1945 by Archie & Evangeline McNeil, Cannon Beach Conference Center has grown from its humble beginnings to one of the premier Christian retreat and conference centers on the West Coast. Welcoming more than 13,000 guests each year, CBCC is committed to providing a friendly, comfortable atmosphere where God’s people can find refreshment and renewal.
We are located on the spectacular north Oregon coast, 75 miles northwest of Portland in the beautiful resort town of Cannon Beach, consistently named one of the top ten beaches in the nation.
April through December we offer a variety of conferences for women, men, couples, retirees, military, families, etc. In addition to the great teaching and delicious food, we offer many entertaining activities. The excitement goes to another level in the summer with our week-long family conferences as we also enjoy increased sunshine and warmer temperatures. We call our summer conferences “a vacation with a purpose.” Our year-round, full-time staff of over sixty doubles during the summer months.
In addition to our conferences, we host over 130 Christian retreat groups each year including numerous churches and parachurch organizations.
We are also the location of Ecola Bible College and the Christian Culinary Academy. Some years ago, we also acquired the Ecola Creek Lodge motel which is open to the public for short-term vacation stays.
CBCC is an interdenominational ministry and is a member of Christian Camp and Conference Association as well as the Evangelical Council for Financial Accountability.
“To provide and support Christ-centered biblical instruction, which promotes spiritual growth in individuals and families. This is primarily carried out in a beach resort setting where quality programs, attractive facilities and a well-trained Christian staff provide an atmosphere for Christian fellowship, renewal and relaxation.”
“To be the premier coastal experience in a Christ-centered community realizing transformation now and for the generations to come.”
Renew, Restore & Refresh
Our conferences bring individuals and families closer to the Lord and to others. They leave renewed in their Christian faith.
“Forever family memories; rest, God’s creation outside, laughter and fun!”

A HISTORY OF EXCELLENT BIBLICAL EXPOSITION
"I have been privileged to [regularly] spend a week at CBCC… It has been a delight to share God’s Word to audiences that hunger to learn more… As an added bonus during the free afternoons, our family enjoyed playing and hiking along the beautiful Oregon coastline…"
