Bethany Luncheon ProgramWe had many opportunities to connect with you at Annual Conference in Charlotte this summer! Faculty and staff offered eight insight sessions, ranging from a Bible study to young adult ministry to an introduction of new president Jeff Carter. The annual Bethany Seminary and Brethren Academy Luncheon was held Tuesday, July 2, and the Brethren Journal Association luncheon and annual meeting met Monday, July 1. In addition, all Conference attendees were invited to a reception on Monday afternoon to honor President Ruthann Johansen upon her retirement.

(Certificate of Achievement in Theological Studies)

JeffFor nine years I felt the leading of God to ministry. I began my academic journey thinking that I had God all figured out. This journey began at Moody Bible Institute for several semesters, where I gleaned perspective on missions and evangelism. Because of a full-time missionary role, I suspended Moody classes to concentrate on raising support. During that time God began to speak to me about the overall disunity in our Christian church. I came to the conclusion that unity within the body of Christ is the best way to reach lost souls with greater depth. I started exploring the Anabaptist teaching and specifically the way the Church of the Brethren strives toward this vision of unity and reconciliation.
