Celebrate 2015! This is My Story
MB Foundation is pleased to announce the first ever national gathering for senior adults hosted by MB Foundation. The gathering is scheduled for October 2 – 4, 2015 in Overland Park (Kansas City) KS in the beautiful Sheraton Hotel and will feature great music, inspiration and fellowship. Don Argue and his wife, Pat, will join us as the guest speaker. Dr. Argue formerly served as Chancellor and president of Northwest University and is a past president of National Association of Evangelicals. Recognized as a Christian statesman, Dr. Argue is a visionary leader and communicator and has served on numerous national boards and committees, including the President’s Advisory Committee on International Religious Freedom. He currently serves as Ambassador-at-Large for Convoy of Hope.
Southern District Conference has sponsored several gatherings for senior adults which were well-received across the district. In 2004, SDC put an event together in conjunction with the USMB National Convention, but for the past 10 years, the idea has been tabled, but not forgotten. MB Foundation has recruited a national Advisory Planning Team for the event consisting of Erwin & Winnie Bartel, Dale & Eleanor Boese, Jack & Laverna Braun, Bob & Lynette Ewert, Dean & Loretta Jost, Marvin & Tips Just and Russ & Kathy Isaac.
The theme for Celebrate 2015! is “This is My Story.” Attendees will be encouraged to understand the power of the gospel story in their own lives and the power of their story to influence others. “We are really excited by the opportunity to host this national gathering,” says Jon C. Wiebe, President & CEO of MB Foundation. “We believe there is a yearning for a gathering like this which caters to a certain segment of our national family. We are privileged to lend a hand to make it happen.”
Registration and additional details will be communicated through the local church and Christian Leader as they develop. Make plans to attend!
