FGBC moderator Tim Boal (center, left, blue shirt) is conducting the current three-day meetings of the FGBC’s Fellowship Council. The meeting is being hosted by the Grace Community Church of Seal Beach, California, and pastor Donald Shoemaker.
Among the agenda items are a proposal for restructuring the leadership team of the FGBC, the recommendation of admitting seven new churches to the FGBC, the adoption of a budget to recommend to the conference business meeting this summer, and more.
Fellowship Council members are elected from geographic regions of the country. Also participating are the four moderators of the FGBC — one present (Tim Boal), one past (Keith Shearer) and two future (Jim Brown and John McIntosh).
Members of the council will preach in various Grace Brethren churches throughout southern California this Sunday. Speaking at the Seal Beach church will be Keith Shearer, and BMH executive director Terry White will conduct a church communications seminsar at Seal Beach on Saturday and will represent BMH in the three morning services this Sunday at the Seal Beach church.
