Speaker to highlight African-American MBs

Highlighting the history of the Mennonite Brethren in the eastern United States and casting a vision for the future, Terry Hunt, district minister of the North Carolina Mennonite Brethren Conference, will provide the keynote address for the annual spring dinner meeting of the Center for Mennonite Brethren Studies at Tabor College.

The dinner will be at 6:30 p.m. May 5 in the Wohlgemuth Music Education Center lobby.

“We look forward to hearing of the history of the early African-American Mennonites that lived in the region and their dreams for ministry in the future,” Goertzen said.

The North Carolina MB Conference began in 1899 with a local couple, Henry V. and Elizabeth Wiebe from the former Springfield Krimmer Mennonite Brethren Church, rural Lehigh.

Tickets are $20 and reservations can be made by contacting Peggy Goertzen, CMBS director, at 620-947-3121, ext. 1211 or 1212, or by e-mail at peggyg@tabor.edu.
