Brethren Revival Fellowship to gather for 2013 General Meeting.

The Brethren Revival Fellowship (BRF) General Meeting will be held Saturday, Sept. 14, beginning at 10 a.m. at New Fairview Church of the Brethren, located some three miles south of York, Pa. The all-day program will consider “Pressing Toward the Goal: A Positive Witness for Christ.” Among the speakers will be Walter Heisey, Jordan Keller, Ken Leininger, and Craig Alan Myers. A report of Annual Conference and approval of BRF Committee members will occur as well.

On the front of every “BRF Witness” newsletter is this statement: “The Brethren Revival Fellowship of the Church of the Brethren works in the interest of proclaiming and preserving Biblical values for living today. We believe the Bible is the infallible Word of God, the final authority for belief and practice, and that to personally accept Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior is the only means of salvation.” This statement has been the BRF core mission since very near the beginning of the BRF movement in 1959.

The emphasis of this year’s general meeting will be on the positive influence that the BRF has been over the years in being a witness for Christ and how to move forward in the future. The gathering will look at BRF efforts both in word and deed.

All who support the ministry of the BRF are invited to attend, along with people who have participated in Brethren Bible Institute, the BRF Brethren Volunteer Service units, and workcamps. The meeting will include testimonials from some of the participants.

Childcare will be provided. Participants should bring their own lunch, the host church is providing the beverage. For those coming from a distance, there are several hotels within a convenient distance.
