On Christ the Solid Rock We Stand: Building Community

Nov. 2 and 3, 2018

Antioch Church of the Brethren, Woodstock



2018 District Conference

Returns To November

The 2018 Shenandoah District Conference will be Nov. 2 and 3 at Antioch Church of the Brethren (23502 Senedo Road, Woodstock).

District Executive Minister John Jantzi outlines plans for District Conference:
The 2018 Shenandoah District Conference is rapidly approaching. As announced earlier, we will be convening at Antioch Church of the Brethren on Friday, Nov. 2, and Saturday, Nov. 3. The focus will be a continuation of the 2017 theme; "On Christ the Solid Rock We Stand."
The 2017 conference highlighted the character and person of Jesus. For example: Jesus the Bread of Life and Jesus our Friend. This year's focus will be developed from Matthew 5-7 and will highlight Jesus' teachings on being in community and fellowship with each other. I am anticipating eagerly our time together, building on the time of worship, praise and fellowship we began last year.
Given the tragic death of Brother Richi Yowell, we are leaving the position of moderator vacant in his honor. The District Leadership Team acted to call four individuals to provide leadership for different components of our time together:
Saturday Business Convener                 Jonathan Brush, former moderator
District Discernment Team First Read    Jon Prater, Team chair
Constitution Action                                  David Miller, member of revision team
Delegate Briefing                                    Wayne Pence, District Leadership Team Chair

Saturday, Nov. 3 (worship and business)
