District Forms

Blue Ribbon Committee

(Renamed District Discernment Team)

A Blue Ribbon Committee, whose formation was announced at the 2017 Shenandoah District Conference, has been organized and has begun its work. As planned, the 10-member committee will meet through 2018, focusing on ways our congregations can covenant anew to work together through divisions that threaten our unity as followers of Christ.

The committee is chaired by Jon Prater, pastor of the Mt. Zion/Linville Church of the Brethren and immediate past chair of the District Leadership Team. Joining him on the committee are Jonathan Brush (Lebanon), Heather Driver (Bridgewater), Hobert Harvey (Bethel/Mayland), Terry Jewell (Knights Chapel), LaDawn Knicely (Beaver Creek), David R. Miller (Montezuma), Carter Myers (Mill Creek), Nate Rittenhouse (New Hope) and Karen Shiflet (Mt. Bethel). The committee also will be served by three ex-officio members and three consultants.
