On November 1, 2017, Director Matt Macking and the PMBC board welcomed Kyle Martin onto the Full-Time Staff as Programs Coordinator.  Kyle's primary duties will include planning for the summer camping program and year-round programs, marketing, and communications.

Kyle was previously a camper and worked on summer staff at PMBC from 2007 through 2011. Kyle served as a workboy, counselor and three summers as program director. Kyle attended Cairn University, graduating with a Bachelor's in Business Administration as well as a Bachelor's in Bible. He served at Camp Hebron, a Christian summer camp & retreat center, for three years, assisting in marketing and development. During Kyle's time there, he also served on their leadership team. 

Kyle is passionate about camping ministry:

I genuinely believe Summer Camp is one of God’s most effective tools to reach children and youth. Where else can you have a child’s attention for a week with no distractions? We get to show the love of Jesus, build relationships and share what the Bible says about how deep Christ’s love is for them.

Kyle is also passionate about discipleship of summer staff. While on summer staff, he could feel the effects of being surrounded by positive influences, putting his faith into action and the accountability that the summer staff community encouraged. His time on staff created a desire to be more like Christ. Kyle wants to continue to cultivate a positive and transformative experience for summer staffers at PMBC. 

He also aims to keep friends of Camp engaged with what is happening at PMBC. Kyle desires to have consistent communication so that supporters are well-informed of the volunteer and financial needs of Camp, the ministry that happens, events, and opportunities for stakeholders to engage with each other.
