2009 Youth Peace Travel Team Announced

The Church of the Brethren is pleased to announce their 2009 Youth Peace Travel Team. Members are Chelsea Goss of Mechanicsville, VA, Jessica Flory Steury of Kettering, OH, Marianne Houff of Bethel, PA, and Bethany Funkhouser of Strasburg, VA. Congratulations to these four women who will represent the church as they travel to camps across the denomination throughout the summer. This team, sponsored by the Church of the Brethren Outdoor Ministries, Youth and Young Adult, Brethren Volunteer Service, On Earth Peace, and Brethren Witness/Washington Office programs will share with Brethren youth the message of peace and justice that has been a core faith tradition of the church throughout its 300 year history. The team will also be attending and leading sessions at the National Jr. High Conference, the San Diego Annual Conference, and the New Windsor Workcamp. Please offer these four women your congratulations and prayerful support.
