Among the agenda items discussed were the completion of volume 4 of the Brethren Encyclopedia, other monograph manuscripts being considered for publication, and plans for the 300th anniversary celebration in 2008 of the “birth of the Brethren movement” in Schwarzenau, Germany.
The first three volumes of the encyclopedia are now available, and volume 4 has been delayed several months due to the recent sudden death of the co-editor, Dr. Donald Durnbaugh. Dr. Dale Ulrich (second from right, in white shirt) will complete the editing.
Groups represented include the Old Order German Baptist Brethren, The Tunkers, The Church of the Brethren, The Brethren Church (Ashland), The Conservative Grace Brethren Church, and the Fellowship of Grace Brethren Churches. The FGBC is represented on the board by Terry White, executive director of the Brethren Missionary Herald Co.
