Persons who attended the September 2018 UB History Course held at the United Brethren National Office in Huntington, Ind.

UB History Course

The UB History Course is held periodically during the year, entirely on Zoom.

This course is a requirement for ministerial licensing in the United Brethren denomination, and qualifies for 12 credit hours. However, people who just want to learn more about United Brethren history are welcome to take the course.

Laypersons, especially local church leaders (board chairpersons and members, lay delegates, etc.), are encouraged to attend. It’s valuable to have an understanding about United Brethren history.


The cost is $200, plus the cost of the required books.

Required Books

In addition to the registration fee, you will need a copy of three books:

Trials and Triumphs,” a history of the United Brethren church ($14.95 + shipping).

All for Christ,” volumes 1 and 2, a history of the UB church focused on the years 1981-2017 ($25 + shipping).

Get all three books for $39.95 plus shipping.
