(HQ) The 2023 UBF Founders Day will be Held via In-Person & Online on Friday October 6, 2023
On Friday, October 6th @ 7:00 pm CST, we will celebrate UBF Founders Day!
Dear servant of Christ in the UBF community:
May the grace and mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you. Thanks and praise to God for pouring out his abundant blessing on the "His Glory" conference and revealing himself to us. As we encountered Him, His Glory shone into our hearts and renewed our faith, spirit, and vision. Since then, His Glory has spread in many places around the world as his servants have gone out fishing and teaching the Bible to students on campuses and in our homes, workplaces, and neighborhoods. May His Glory cover the earth as the waters cover the seas! May his kingdom come! Amen.
Now, in Headquarters, we are preparing for Founders Day. It will be held in the Chicago center on October 6, 2023, at 7:00 p.m. The title is "Don't You Remember?" from Mark 8:18b. Jesus challenged his disciples to remember what he had done. This is so important for us. Without remembering what Jesus has done, we easily fall under the influence of the world and become full of anxiety and lose direction. But when we remember what Jesus has done, we find peace and strength to live for his glory joyfully. Through Founders Day, we want to build up our sense of history so that we may stand firm in Christ amidst the corruption of the world and carry God's vision for world salvation forward to a new generation. We believe this Founders Day celebration will be a blessing to our community. I warmly invite you to participate in it, either in person or online. And please pray for this event.
The program will include a message: "Don't You Remember?" by myself (Mark 8:14-21), and testimonies by P. Nehemiah Kim (Korea UBF Director), John Giesbrecht (Canada), Steve Stasinos (Toledo), and David Shin (Czech Republic). There will be special music programs as well.
Please save the date. I look forward to seeing you either in person or online.
P. Ron Ward
(UBF General Director)
