MTCC has a rich heritage of teaching God’s word and providing camping and convention experiences for Christians from all walks of life. We prioritise these three core convictions
Hearing God’s Word; Becoming like God’s Son; Serving God’s Mission
In 1959, the property on which the Mount Tamborine Conference Centre is now situated was a disused dairy farm. Funds raised from conventions along with generous donations by supporters enabled the purchase of the site. A few key men saw the potential of the property and envisioned a functioning Conference Centre to host the annual Keswick Easter Convention, which until that point had been running under a tent a few kilometres away at Eagle Heights.
After much hard work the property was finally cleared. An aircraft hangar was transported from Archerfield in Brisbane and re-purposed as the main Auditorium. For more than 50 years now, and with a number of extensions, it has serve as the site for the Easter Convention.
Long-time supporter and early Convention committee member, Gerhard Bargen, has written a fascinating historical booklet called The Hidden Spring.
