…….As District Conference gathers to Focus on Jesus, the pre-conference event for ministers and other leaders will give it’s attention to a workshop focused on Christology, the study of the nature and work of Jesus as revealed in the scriptures. The event, which will provide ministers with 0.6 CEUs in area 1 Biblical Studies, will examine general understandings of Jesus as well as the ways Brethren have approached this in our history and today.
…….Leadership for the workshop will come from Josh Brockway, Director of Spiritual Life and Discipleship for the Church of the Brethren.
