Welcome to
Surfside Christian




Located on the white sugar sand beaches of Riviera Beach just west of Panama City Beach, FL on the quiet west end of Bay County...far away from the "partying scene"!   Offering the best private facility for you in a totally Christian atmosphere. What better place to proclaim the gospel message, while nurturing individuals, families, school or church groups and other Christian or Charity based organizations to the GLORY of GOD!   Relax by the beautiful Gulf of Mexico or on the deck overlooking the pool.  Or you may prefer to go for a swim, enjoy beach volleyball, football or soccer, walk on the beach or take a trip to one of the nearby attractions.   The privacy and quiet makes Surfside just the place for making or renewing your relationship with the LORD, as you study HIS WORD and take in the awesome beauty of HIS creation.  

Youth Pastor Experiences

Surfside Christian Retreat has been a great blessing to our church over the years. I would highly recommend this facility. I have been a youth pastor at the same church for over 16 years. First you can tell that their staff and prayer team is praying for the groups that are scheduled. We have had tremendous breakthrough with every group we have  brought. We have had numerous salvations, baptisms in the ocean and at church when we got home. The kind of change that takes place lasts long after we return home. Another huge benefit that will help Senior Pastors feel secure; is the location. I have been to 3 different retreats in that area. This is the only one that is not only beach side, which means you don’t have to worry about young people crossing the highway... their beach is also away from the high rise buildings so you don’t get all the crazy worldly stuff. It is also a great family atmosphere because of the layout. This helps promote unity and it’s easy to keep an eye on everyone.”   ~ Mike Ulmer, Youth Pastor,  Church on the Rock, TX 

"I've led countless groups on youth and family retreats to this spot, and it is truly sacred ground. If you're needing a great experience for your group, give'em a call!"   ~ Brad Johnson, Pastor/Seminary Teacher, KY
