Sunday, the second full day of Celebrate06, the annual Grace Brethren conference being held at Indian Wells, California, began at 6:30 a.m. with a chaplain’s breakfast sponsored by the Eagle Commission and Grace Brethren Investment Foundation.

A number of chaplains were present and gave ministry reports–those who were not able to be present sent written reports which will be distributed later. Here in the photo, from left, are James Schaefer, U.S. Army; Ken Townsend, U.S. Air Force Reserves; Jack Galle, U.S. Navy; Larry Chamberlain, president and CEO of GBIF; John Schumacher, FGBC chaplain’s endorsing agent; Mark Penfold, U.S. Army; and Ralph Molyneaux, U.S. Air Force.

In addition to the chaplain’s reports, GBIF also had its annual corporation meeting.
