Tahquitz Pines has a history that truly can only be described as a gift from God.
Born out of a real estate deal during the depression, the land was donated to the
Los Angeles Christian Endeavor in 1930.
The original property was just over eight acres and, with donations from heroic individuals
as well as local churches, the land was soon transformed into a literal “tent city.”
With army equipment and tents from WWI and second-hand restaurant supplies, the first
conference in 1931 accommodated and fed more than 200 attendees.
Over the years, through prayer, generous donations, countless volunteer hours and
God’s blessing, Tahquitz Pines emerged as a thriving conference center for more than
350 Christian organizations across California. The facility has grown to 18 acres,
with everything from a swimming pool to wireless access. All you need to do is find
a quiet spot to sit and listen, and you’ll be taken back to the 1930s where you can
almost see the rugged army tents and fresh-faced youth of a post-war era coming together
and soaking in God’s truth.
We are proud of our 81-year history and overwhelmed at the possibilities of tomorrow,
as we serve the Lord and all those who will come to this campus seeking Him.
