Introducing Our Next Executive Director

As most have heard by now, our Executive Director of 22 years, Jeff Carlsen, has announced his retirement at the end of 2018. Since February, the CBCC Board of Directors and staff management team has been diligently and prayerfully pursuing God’s next choice of director to lead the Conference Center into the future.

We are happy to inform you that a new Executive Director has been hired! His name is Marc Hagman. He and his family (wife Katrin, son Benjamin and daughter’s Linnea and Annika) are very familiar with CBCC as conference guests. They have been impacted by and love the ministry here!

Marc has served for 25 years with Northwest Church in Tacoma, Washington. His roles have included communications, marketing and publishing, teaching and pastoral care, financial oversight and personnel and operations management. His wife Katrin has been involved in teaching, women’s ministries, and event organizing.

Marc is recognized for his spiritual and personal maturity, team building ability, financial expertise, relational and communication skills and a pastor’s heart for people. He and his family plan to move down to the north coast and begin the transition and orientation process around November 1. He will officially take over the reins January 1, 2019. Guests will be given many opportunities to get to know Marc and Katrin over the coming year.

Guests have asked about Jeff and his wife Jean’s plans. The Board has asked Jeff to continue in a part-time role for the next year or two to oversee the fund raising and construction of the new Kitchen & Dining Complex project. As such, Jeff will be present for conferences and special events and to help in the transition to new leadership.

Thank you again for your faithful and generous support of the ministry of the Conference Center! We trust your support will continue as we make this important transition. We covet your prayers even more, as the conference ministry has had such a profound impact on so many for so long. By God’s grace, we expect that impact to flourish even more in the days ahead. Rejoice with us, as well, as we celebrate God’s clear leading over the past eight months.

To God be the Glory!

Conference Payment Plan and Online Bill Pay

Many of our guests have found it helpful to spread out their conference payments over time as part of their personal budget. We have listed some of the payment options available under the “Conference Payment Plan” section of our registration policies page.

Other guests have asked for the ability to make credit card payments without having to call our front desk.  We have added an Online Bill Pay feature which allows you to make a secure payment online. You may also choose the option for a recurring payment.
