See what God has been up to at Palomar!

Updated: Jan 4

Hello Friends of Palomar Camp,

Over the last seventy years God has moved powerfully through the ministry of Palomar Christian Conference Center. PCCC exists to reach the lost for Christ, and to pursue spiritual growth through the study of God's Word. By God's grace and through your partnerships 2023 was another fruitful year of transformed lives.

Although we may not have the reporting mechanisms in place to report every life that made a first-time decision to follow Christ or that made a decision to go deeper in their relationship with the Lord, we feel confident that almost everyone that steps foot on the mountain will be impacted in a positive way. With that being said the real beauty of 13,000 lives impacted is the transformation happening in each individual heart. Over half of our campers are youth so we are proud to serve a generation in need of experiencing God free of distraction and hearing the truth contained in his Word.


Ministry Highlights 2023

• Over 13,000 people were served at


• 1,500+ campers through our Outdoor education and Summer programs

• 242 reported salvations

• 495 reported decisions for Christ


New Executive Director

After 10 years of serving at Palomar as the Executive Director, God called Micah Beard to leave Palomar in February and direct a camp in Alabama. Recently, I was hired as the new executive director. It’s exciting to be a part of Palomar Christian Conference Center. I spent every summer attending a local Christian camp as a child and volunteered in high school as a part of the summer staff. My journey has included serving in the United States Marine Corp as well as in the business world before being called into full-time ministry. During my years in ministry, I have served as a missionary to India, in a discipleship school and as an associate pastor. God brought me full circle back to camping ministry where I have the privilege of creating an environment for others to have a similar life-transforming experience that I had. I'd love to meet with our ministry partners in person or at least over the phone so please feel free to reach out.
