TAKING THE GOSPEL OF PEACE TO OUR NATION’S WARRIORS
Our Fellowship’s ministry to those serving in the military has come a long way. Officially organized in 1939, the Fellowship of Grace Brethren Churches, now Charis Fellowship, was barely two years old when our country was attacked at Pearl Harbor on December 7, 1941. Just a few months later, Rev. Orville Lorenz sensed a call to serve as an Army chaplain.
Today, many more have followed a call to take the Gospel of peace to our nation’s warriors. Our chaplains have served in every branch of service, at every level, in every conflict and almost in every major operation. What an incredible opportunity as a Fellowship to reach those who serve or served our nation, to share their hardships and to proclaim the Good News of salvation and to disciple those who follow Jesus!
