Your church should bring a busload or car caravan of people to a service at the upcoming US National Conference. Or to several services.

The evening services, and the closing service on Saturday morning, are open for anyone to attend. You don’t need to have registered for the conference. Come join the nearly 700 UBs who have registered, and let’s fill the place!

The convention is July 17-20. The evening services start at 6:30. Daniel Henderson will speak Wednesday and Thursday nights on prayer, which will be a continuing emphasis for Bishop Todd Fetters; it would be great if you could. Friday night is Missions Night, with David Datema speaking. Bishop Todd Fetters will speak on Saturday morning at 9:00 am, presenting some of his vision for the denomination.

Organize a road trip with some of your fellow parishioners. We’d love to see you there!

The conference will be held at Bowling Green State University in the Bowen student union center.

New Horizons Community Church in Rockford, Ohio, is a growing congregation in western Ohio, approximately 40 miles southeast of Fort Wayne, Ind. We are looking for a pastor who will help the people of Rockford, the surrounding communities, and the global community to become totally devoted followers of Jesus Christ—bringing Christ and community together. We desire our lead pastor to guide our experienced team of staff and volunteers in stepping into the next season of growth we believe God has in store for New Horizons.

Our next lead pastor will be a skilled communicator with a shepherd’s heart. The ability to encourage others to assume and carry out leadership is essential. Skill and experience in facility expansion and effective conflict management will be a benefit. It is also expected that this individual will maintain professional ministerial credentials with the Church of the United Brethren in Christ, USA.

New Horizons is an inter-generational congregation of approximately 300 people in a rural community. We are financially strong and are anticipating launching the second phase of expanding our modern facilities. Doing so will enable us to continue to grow in our current location.

If this sounds like something for which God has been preparing you, please send a copy of your resume, a cover letter, and a current photo to Bishop Todd Fetters as bishop@ub.org.
