On Friday, July 11, 2014, the Brethren in Christ Church in the U.S. will gather for its biennial General Conference. This year, conference delegates will gather at Lancaster Mennonite School in Lancaster, Pa. This gathering promises to be a historic conference — and in a way it already is, even before the first vote has been cast, because it’s the first time General Conference has been held in Lancaster — the birthplace and supposed “heartland” of the Brethren in Christ community — since 1946!
If you’re a delegate, stop by and say “hi” — I’ll be wandering around Conference all weekend, blogging and assisting with the Brethren in Christ Historical Society‘s social media campaign (more on that later!).
If you won’t be in Lancaster, be sure to follow the General Conference blog and / or the General Church’s Twitter feed for Conference updates. And stay tuned to The Search for Piety and Obedience, as I’ll be sharing unique content all weekend long!
