Mark and Debbie Taylor are BCM Missionaries assigned to Mount Traber Bible Camp. Mount Traber is a non-denominational bible camp where the sole purpose is to help young people enjoy an awesome time at camp and show them that God loves them and how to have fun in the beautiful outdoors that God had created for them. Mark and Debbie are part of BCM (Bible Centered Ministries) International, Canada. They left Middle Musquodoboit in the Spring of 2006 and took their family to Ontario, where they were trained in many areas of children’s camping ministry at their sister camp, Millstream Bible Camp.
Mark was raised in Musquodoboit Valley working most of his life with his family business, Taylor Lumber. Mark has been involved with Mount Traber for many years: as a camper, Sunday Schools, as Program Director for teens, as a member of the Christian Service Brigades and as a board member. After being placed at Mount Traber in August 2006, Mark and Debbie served for 2 years as missionaries in training then Mark was appointed Director in Nov. 2008.
Mark’s wife Debbie, has also been involved with Mount Traber most of her life as a camper, Program Director and Camp Counselor. Debbie continues to work full time alongside Mark at the camp as Administrator, Rental co-ordinator and Food Services.
Shanda (1995) and Austin (1997) worked right alongside their parents for many years. They have both graduated from high school and have left the nest. Austin lives in Enfield only 25 minutes away and works for MacKinnon and Olding – Marine and Industrial Contractors as a sandblaster and painter. Shanda lives in Bible Hill, 45 minutes away with Hunter (2015) and Bo (2017) and keeps very busy working for High Gloss Maintenance and being a mom. So yes, Mark and Debbie are also grandparents.
This summer (2019) will be Mark and Debbie’s 13th summer as full time missionaries at MTBC and feel so blessed in what the Lord has done for them and their family and say it is a GREAT privilege to be part of the Lords ministry here at MTBC.
Daniel Grubb is a 19 year old BCM (Bible Centered Ministries) missionary who serves at Mount Traber Bible Camp. Daniel was born in Pennsylvania and is one of 4 children. He has an older sister (Katie) and two younger brothers (David and Derrick). Daniel was raised in a Christian home by his amazing parents (Shawn and Tina Grubb). Daniels dad is the Pastor of Maranatha Bible Church in Lycoming Pennsylvania.
For the past five years Daniel has volunteered his summers at Mount Traber as a cabin leader and helping at the barn. He enjoyed it so much that when asked by the camp director to move to the camp full time he accepted happily. His plans after graduating High School were unclear, so it was an answer to prayer when Mark asked him to stay. Now he serves every day at camp growing spiritually through Christ while taking care of the horses and other barn animals. Daniel is the Ranch Program and Maintenance Coordinator. He has been a full time Missionary at the camp now since April of 2019.
On Dec. 28th 2019 the Lord paved the way for Daniel to receive his work permit and he will be able to stay on now at Mount Traber for the next 3 years.
Daniel also enjoys hunting, fishing, kayaking, hiking and camping. So he is in the perfect place for loving the outdoors especially here on Mount Trabers 400 acres.
