Students enrolled in the 412 Commission classes visited the offices of the Brethren Missionary Herald Company (BMH) and the Fellowship of Grace Brethren Churches (FGBC) today (Monday) for lunch. After lunch, BMH staffers Jesse Deloe (senior editor), Ann Swartz Myers (operations manager), and Liz Cutler Gates (editorial director) explained the ministries of BMH and Tom Avey, fellowship coordinator, talked about the FGBC (above).
The group also toured the BMH warehouse and visited with John Leonard, books manager with BMH Books.
The 412 Commission is a year-long program to gain practical ministry experience while studying the Bible. Sponsored by CE National, the program begins with orientation in Winona Lake, Ind. Next week, the group moves to Goshen, Ind. where they will be involved with ministry opportunities at the Grace Community Church, a Grace Brethren church there. The program also includes college-level classes through Liberty University and a visit to the Holy Land.
