Deadline to register for UBF North American staff conference
This is a friendly reminder to register for our upcoming staff conference at the University of Puget Sound in Tacoma, WA (Seattle area). At this staff conference we especially want to pray for all the UBF families living in or near the Pacific Northwest. From 2018, our annual staff conferences will be in January in the Chicago area.
On March 25, 2017 at the Chicago UBF Sunday worship service, Pastor Ron Ward awarded our 13 CBF teachers with certificates of achievement for completing eight months of education in teaching and communication skills. It was a significant landmark in raising teachers who can serve second generations’ spiritual education and to equip our one-to-one Bible teachers in the ministry of teaching regardless of class size or student numbers. This education for teachers is the one of our Teachers & Parents Education (T&PE) for our growing second generation ministry.
In 2016 we studied the book of Mark for Fall and also started John for Spring semester. Over the summer we also started a DVD series called the Alpha series. It was focused on reaching non-Christians or very young Christians. It was a very good tool to get many non-Christians or even some of our members who only go to Sunday service to attend Bible study. We are continuing our study of John’s gospel for the upcoming semester.
