UB History Course

The United Brethren History Course is a requirement for ministerial licensing in the United Brethren denomination. However, people who just want to learn more about United Brethren history are free to take the course. The course is held periodically in regional settings. During the past five years, 150 people have attended the course in 20 different sessions.

The last offerings were in March 2017. Although those events are long past, we’ll keep the information below alive so you have an idea of what the events involve.
