UPDATES

General Conference

We are looking forward to the 123rd General Conference which will meet July 11–14, 2014 at Lancaster Mennonite School in Lancaster, PA. Pray that it will be a great time as, together, we share what God is doing in and through our church family and also dialogue, discern, and decide matters related to our continued witness for the Kingdom of God.

Starting on Friday, you can visit our website for a live stream of the Business Sessions, Evening Services, and Bible Quizzing Finals. We'll also be posting regular updates to the GC 2014 blog. Like us on Facebook and follow us on Twitter (@BICChurchUS) to receive Conference updates. Use #BICconf14 to share your Conference thoughts with the BIC community!

2013 Audited Financial Statements

The completed 2013 Audited Financial Statements are available online. If upon review of the audit you have specific questions, please send them to bicfinance@bic-church.org.

Deployment of missionaries to Zambia

We continue to recruit, train, and deploy global workers. Please contact Vicky Landis if you sense that God might be calling you to consider ministry of this kind.

We are pleased to let you know that Bruce and Joleen Brubaker have very recently accepted a one-year position to serve in Zambia. Joleen has been serving 5 years as the coordinator for our SPICE program. In her new role she will serve as the financial secretary for our ministry in Zambia and she and Bruce will manage the guest houses at Nahumba and Sikalongo. Bruce will work in the economic development office for water and sanitation improvement efforts as well as assisting in homeschooling their two older children. Please pray for them to know God’s presence and guidance and help as they raise support and plan for deployment in September 2014.
