There is still time to register and participate in either or both of this summer’s adult conferences in the FGBC.
DRIVEN06, geared mainly for young adults, will be held June 22-26 on the campus of Kenyon College in Gambier, Ohio. The conference theme is “Alert and Oriented,” and it will focus on helping twenty-somethings answer basic questions about their identity and mission in life.
Speakers, workshops, roundtables, recreation, and great times of fellowship will provide opportunity for learning, reflection, and interaction. Main-session speakers include Kondo Simfukwe, Jeff Bogue, Lisa Harrison, Dr. Randy Smith, and Kary Oberbrunner.
The fee for single adults is $165 per person or $300 for married couples, with special group rate “packs” as well as day rates and children’s rates. Log onto www.driven06.org to register, or e-mail questions to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The annual gathering of Grace Brethren churches, Celebrate06, will take place at the Hyatt Grand Champions Resort in Indian Wells, CA, July 29-August 3.
Beginning with a celebratory look at the past by longtime pastor Charles Ashman, the conference will include the moderator’s address by incoming FGBC Moderator Tim Boal and a variety of speakers including Tom Hocking, Keith Shearer, Jim Cymbala, Randy Smith, and Terry Hofecker.
The national organizations will sponsor luncheons, business meetings, ministry updates and special functions, and there will be separate sessions for the Association of Grace Brethren Ministers and the Women of Grace USA.
Online registration is available at www.celebrate06.com, and registration packets and publicity materials are available from the office of Fellowship Coordinator Tom Avey by calling (574) 269-1269, ext. 2.
