Equip07 is Off and Running

Jul 30, 2007 | Brethren Digital Archive, Eagle Commission

Dave Rank (at keyboard) and the worship team from the Winona Lake, Indiana, Grace Brethren Church led worship for the opening session of Equip07, the national conference of the Fellowship of Grace Brethren Churches.

The conference is meeting all this week on the Grace College & Seminary campus in Winona Lake, Indiana, with a focus on equipping and lifelong learning.

In addition to the many courses, seniors conference, and other events, a special “Chaplains Appreciation Dinner” was held this evening for the nine Grace Brethren military chaplains. The event was sponsored by the Grace Brethren Investment Foundation and the Eagle Commission, which oversees the work of the chaplains.

Classes resume at 9 a.m. on Tuesday. Tuesday evening features the “International Food Fest” which is jointly sponsored by Grace Brethren International Missions and Grace Brethren North American Missions.

The meeting begins with a brief GBIM corporation meeting near the Village at Winona on Park Avenue and moves to the knoll where the Foreign Mission Society was founded. Then the festival moves to the Rodeheaver Auditorium for an evening of food and fellowship with home and foreign missionaries.
