Highlighting the history of the Mennonite Brethren in the eastern United States and casting a vision for the future, Dr. Terry Hunt, district minister of the North Carolina Mennonite Brethren Conference, has been invited to provide the keynote address for the CMBS annual spring dinner meeting. The dinner will be May 5 at 6:30 p.m. in the Wohlgemuth Music Education Center lobby. Tickets are $15 and reservations can be made by contacting CMBS director, Peggy Goertzen at (620) 947-3121 ext. 1211 or ext. 1212 or by email peggyg@tabor.edu. Reservations are due April 30.

“We are pleased that Dr. Hunt has agreed to come to Kansas and speak at our annual spring dinner,” said Goertzen. “It is an honor and we look forward to hearing of the history of the early African-Americans Mennonites that lived in the region and their dreams for ministry in the future.”

The North Carolina MB Conference has its beginnings with a local couple, Henry V. and Elizabeth Wiebe from the Springfield KMB Church, rural Lehigh, Kansas, in 1899.
