Nigeria's long journey home (October 2016 update by Markus Gamache)

Event planning

Are you planning an event at your church or another location to raise money for the Nigeria Crisis Fund? Let us know so we can help advertise or provide resources. Contact with the event details so we can share them too. You can also call Kendra Harbeck at (847) 429-4388 to see about scheduling a speaker from the Church of the Brethren.

As Brethren seek ways to reach out to members of our sister church in Nigeria, Larry Glick is available to present a special program. Glick is well known for his portrayals of leaders from Brethren history including Church of the Brethren founder A. Mack (Alexander Mack Sr.) and Civil War-era elder and martyr for peace John Kline. The special program for Nigeria will include a time of worship, the story of Elder John Kline, a video presentation on the crisis in Nigeria, and will conclude with an opportunity to contribute to the Nigeria Crisis Fund.
