2017-ub-us-national-conference

This will be a historic National Conference, since it comes on our 250th anniversary. It was in 1767, at a barn in Lancaster, Pa., that Martin Boehm and William Otterbein clasped hands and said, “We are brethren.” That was our beginning. We will celebrate that event, and the 250 years that followed, in 2017.

You can register online.
