Terry Hunt, district minister of the North Carolina Mennonite Brethren Conference, will give the keynote address for the Center for Mennonite Brethren Studies annual spring dinner meeting, 6:30 p.m. May 5 in the Wohlgemuth Music Education Center lobby.
Hunt’s address will highlight the history of the Mennonite Brethren in the eastern United States and cast a vision for the future.
“We are pleased that Dr. Hunt has agreed to come to Kansas and speak at our annual spring dinner,” CMBS director Peggy Goertzen said. “It is an honor, and we look forward to hearing the history of the early African-American Mennonites that lived in the region and their dreams for ministry in the future.”
The North Carolina MB Conference had beginnings with a local couple, Henry V. and Elizabeth Wiebe of the Springfield KMB Church, rural Lehigh, in 1899.
Tickets cost $20. Reservations may be made by contacting Goertzen at (620) 947-3121 ext. 1211 or 1212 or by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org.
