Youth Peace Travel Team

Members of the Youth Peace Travel Team have been chosen for the summer of 2006. Four young adult women were chosen from the field of applicants to travel to youth camps throughout the Church of the Brethren. The goal of the team’s work is to talk with other young people about the Christian message and the Brethren tradition of peacemaking. Team members will be Corinne Lipscomb, a Manchester College student from Springfield (Ill.) Church of the Brethren; Christina McPherson, a McPherson (Kan.) College student from Boise Valley Church of the Brethren in Meridian, Idaho; Margaret Bortner, a Lycoming College student from Palmyra (Pa.) Church of the Brethren; and Karen Duhai, an Elizabethtown (Pa.) College student from Bedford (Pa.) Church of the Brethren. The team is sponsored by On Earth Peace, the Outdoor Ministries Association, and the Church of the Brethren General Board’s Youth and Young Adult Ministry Office, Brethren Witness/Washington Office, and Brethren Volunteer Service.
