2016 UB Women’s Conference
We are excited to invite you and the other women in your church to the 2016 United Brethren Women’s Conference.
You will join hundreds of United Brethren women from across the denomination. About 240 women attended the 2014 conference.
The conference will be held in Gettysburg, Pa., where we will be surrounded by historic landmarks, Civil War-era charm, and stunning scenery. Lodging will be at the Gettysburg Wyndham. Our hotel is located on a 100-acre campus just minutes from the battlefield, with modern amenities and world-class dining.
Our guest speaker will be Nicky (Boelter) Poarch. Nicky has an amazing story of God’s faithfulness despite devastating loss.
Nicky and her husband, James, and their three children served as missionaries for 11 years in Indonesia, eventually working in the same village where James grew up and where his parents were missionaries. They became fluent in the Da’an tribal language, which enabled them to share the Gospel and begin translating God’s Word. They started Sunday school programs and kids clubs amongst the Da’an children, led Bible studies with adults, and translated parts of Genesis.
Then, in 2013, James died suddenly in Indonesia. Nicky and her three children (right) returned from the field and now live in Arizona. Even through this heartache, they are working so that each person can know Christ and glorify Him in their own culture and language. Nicky has a passion for living the Gospel out in front of people, and we will see that as she relates her story.

Dinner on Your Own
Transportation to Gettysburg
Your church can help by bringing women to the conference in a van or bus. That’ll reduce individual travel expenses. Also, it’ll give us larger vehicles to use for site-seeing trips. During the free afternoon time, we will coordinate trips to various locations with these vans and buses. So if you can bring a larger vehicle, it’ll be a big help.
The silent auction is back by popular demand. It helps underwrite costs so we can keep fees low. Plan to bring items for the auction. Registrants will receive emails with more information.
For more information, contact: Cathy Reich, administrative assistant to Bishop Todd Fetters.
