Moderator’s District Q+A
These ZOOM sessions are for districts, focusing on the “state of the church.” Both laity and clergy are urged to participate. The sessions utilize a Q&A format, with an emphasis on listening to the hearts of our constituency; any and all questions are invited. Joining Moderator Paul are the other Annual Conference Officers: Dave Sollenberger, Moderator Elect, and Jim Beckwith, Annual Conference Secretary. Normally, the Annual Conference Moderator visits Districts in the course of her/his tenure, engaging in conversation related to life of the church. Given the continuing pandemic, these ZOOM Q+A sessions seek to provide an alternative platform for this kind of conversation.

Videos from the Moderator
This Sabbath rest-themed sermon prepared by 2021 Annual Conference moderator Paul Mundey is designed to provide a resource to congregations to enable them to support their pastor taking time away from the responsibilities of preaching.
At the invitation of the Church of the Brethren’s Office of Ministry, this sermon focuses on words from Jeremiah 31:25, “I will satisfy the weary, and all who are faint I will replenish,” which assure us that God accompanies us in upheaval, offering sanctuary amid stormy anxiety, doubt, and fear. Congregations and their ministers are encouraged to partner together to find rest and refreshment in the midst of these days.
Districts, congregations and individuals are welcome to download and use this video from Paul Mundey, the 2021 Annual Conference Moderator.
