LBI Christian Bible Conferences And Retreats (2)
Harvey Cedars Bible Conference And Christian Retreat 12 Cedars Avenue Harvey Cedars, NJ 08008 Phone 609-494-5689 www.HCBible.com
Harvey Cedars Bible Conference - has Conferences & Christian Retreats for Groups as well as individuals. It is "A Perfect Place To Do Business With God."
Harvey Cedars Bible Conference has a rich and long tradition of serving the Christian community. Many consider Harvey Cedars the most beautiful Bible Conference facility on the East Coast.
In August of 1941 the conference grounds were purchased by evangelist, Jack Murray who was a dynamic leader of the "Summer Bible School" movement, which later became AWANA. With God’s leading, the conference broadened in outreach and nationally known figures such as Frances Schaeffer, Vernon Grounds, and Jack Wyrtzen frequently spoke here. Since then Harvey Cedars has been operating as a non-profit Christian conference and retreat center with a ministry that is interdenominational. Over 500 staff alumni have gone out from the Conference to become missionaries, teachers, and pastors across the globe. The Reverend Al Oldham became the director in 1951, and from 1951 to 1995, Al carried on the ministry. Through the years several buildings were added to the facility, including a dining hall, chapel, lodge, gymnasium and indoor heated pool. In 1994 the gorgeous 24 unit Bay View Lodge was completed. Jonathan S. Oldham became the third Conference director in 1995 and has continued to grow the ministry and oversee extensive facilities improvements.

Harvey Cedars Bible Conference History is as follows - written by John Bailey Lloyd in "Eighteen Miles Of History On Long Beach Island."
The old LBI hotel was vacant once more, but this time it was in terrible condition, having been vandalized repeatedly. One summer on the eve of WW II, a young evangelist named Jack Murray and friend Bill Ritchie saw the old hotel while they were fishing. Intrigued by the building, they went in and decided then and there that it would make an ideal "Religious Retreat" for young people. They located the owner, Mabel Bayard, in the Germantown section of Philadelphia, offered all they could afford to raise, $7,500, and their offer was accepted.
It took an incredible amount of hard work to restore the old LBI hotel, but with lots of help they did it, and Harvey Cedars Bible Conference opened in 1941. As the last of the great 19th century hotels on Long Beach Island, NJ, The Harvey Cedars Bible Conference Is In Better Condition Now than it was a 100 years ago.
