Brethren Heritage Center Hires Director

A new milestone in the growth of the BHC

Brookville, Ohio – May 16, 2018 – The Brethren Heritage Center has reached a level in its 15 year history where the need for a salaried director is recognized. The hiring of Mark Lancaster by the Board of Directors moves the BHC from an all-volunteer staff.

Mark brings over forty years of experience in working with mostly non-profit organizations, including Heifer International and American Friends Service Committee. One of his latest projects as executive director of intuitional advancement at Bethany Seminary has been working as a liaison between the Seminary and Ekklesiyar Yan’ Uwa a Nigeria (EYN - Church of the Brethren in Nigeria), helping to develop a program to train EYN leadership.  Mark will continue to work part-time with Bethany as he starts working part-time with BHC.

Some of the activities that Mark will be leading for the BHC include strategic planning, outreach, fundraising, donor relations, supervision of volunteer staff, and to promote the archives regionally, nationally and internationally.

The Brethren Heritage Center is a research and educational facility focusing on the history and genealogy of The Brethren Church, Church of the Brethren, Conservative Grace Brethren International, Dunkard Brethren, Fellowship of Grace Brethren Churches, Old Brethren, Old Brethren German Baptist, Old German Baptist Brethren, Old German Baptist Brethren Church, New Conference, and Old Order German Baptist Church. The BHC archives and museum are open to the public Monday, Wednesday, and Saturday, 10 am to 4 pm.
