WHO IS MICHINDOH?

 

Who We Are


Michindoh Conference Center is a Christian camp and conference center with three main areas of service: a Christ centered and fully programmed youth and adult camp, an Outdoor Education School, and Guest Services to support the camp and retreat needs of church, para-church, school, and other organizations.

Michindoh offers a wide range of programs for the whole family; programs include summer and winter youth and teen camps, youth leadership retreats, marriage enrichment retreats, family retreats, and Road Scholar programs for adult seniors.

If the desire is to run your own program, we have everything you need to develop an exciting and life-changing youth program, sports camp, adult retreat, or formal conference. With a capacity of over 750, Michindoh can serve a variety of group sizes, structures, and needs.

Throughout 250 beautiful acres of rolling hills, wet lands, and a private spring fed lake, Michindoh offers numerous recreational activities to entertain, develop, and challenge guests of all ages. Full buffet-dining services are an exceptional aspect of the Michindoh experience.

After one hundred years representing the MICHigan, INDiana, and OHio conference of the United Brethren in Christ denomination, Michindoh joined Spring Arbor University in 2009! We are thankful for the opportunity to continue serving the extended area's retreat, camp, and conference needs through the unique service of Christian hospitality.

Statement of Faith


a.  We believe in one God, the Holy Trinity: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, as revealed in the Holy Scriptures.

b.  We believe that Jesus Christ is God’s incarnate Son who lived a perfect life on earth, proclaiming God’s reign and establishing a community of disciples; who sacrificially died on the cross for the sins of all people; who rose in triumph from death, accomplishing salvation for all who truly believe in him; who is now at the Father’s right hand interceding for us; and who will return to earth in victory, judging all people and establishing his everlasting Kingdom.

c.  We believe in the Holy Scriptures as the inspired and authoritative Word of God.

d.  We believe that human beings, men and women equally, are created in the image of God and are called to be his faithful stewards on earth. Although all people have become alienated from God and affected in every part because of sin, by God’s grace all who truly repent of their sin and believe in the Lord Jesus Christ are justified by faith.

e.  We believe that human families were established by God to perpetuate humankind and to provide a stable community for nurturing children in faith and righteous living. Marriage between one man and one woman is the instruction of Scripture and sexual expression is to be confined to the marriage relationship.

f.  We believe that God not only counts believers as righteous, but that he makes them righteous; freeing them of sin’s dominion at conversion, purifying their hearts by faith and perfecting them in love by his Spirit, and providing for their growth in grace through their participation at every stage of their spiritual life, enabling them through the presence and power of the Holy Spirit to live a victorious life of righteousness, justice, and practical usefulness.

g.  We believe God’s Kingdom promises to establish “a new heaven and a new earth, where righteousness dwells” (2 Pt. 3:13 TNIV) and where resurrected believers will participate in God’s everlasting Kingdom.
