Virtue: A One-Day Conference

An event put on by The Bonhoeffer Haus, featuring special guests:

Karen Swallow Prior

Hannah Anderson

Rhys Bezzant

Pete Schemm

“The Bonhoeffer Haus seeks to strengthen local churches and to thicken the bonds of kingdom partnership throughout the New River and Roanoke Valleys. Our one-day conference on Virtue will bring seasoned church leaders and authors together for a holistic view of the role of virtue in the Christian life. You will be joined by brothers and sisters from many churches and ministries throughout Southwest Virginia to learn about the counter-cultural witness of the virtuous Christian in a secular culture. You will learn different ways of gaining and sustaining virtue and will have opportunities to engage with our speakers through a Q&A panel discussion.

We hope you join us on September 28 as we serve and equip attendees for a lifestyle of making ‘every effort to supplement your faith with virtue.’”

Cost is $10.

Covenantal Membership Class

Join us for our one-day church membership class. We will meet following second service in the Library, which is the first door on your right when you enter the building through the back parking lot. The class covers our church's four identities: gospel, community, worship, and mission. Following the class, you will have a one-on-one meeting with an elder, then voted into membership at VBC.

Lunch and childcare provided.

For more information about our covenant membership process and to sign up for the class, email Jahlisa Harvey at office@vbcradford.com.

Covenant church membership is "a formal relationship between a local church and a Christian characterized by the church’s affirmation and oversight of a Christian’s discipleship and the Christian’s submission to living out his or her discipleship in the care of the church" (Jonathan Leeman).

Membership Class

Our summer Membership Class will be held on Sunday, June 9 from noon to 5 p.m. Typically, our membership process is a four-week process, so we are piloting a new program this summer to do it in one day--hence the long afternoon! We will provide lunch at noon as an opportunity to hear more about the history, vision, and mission of VBC prior to diving into our four sessions. The class will cover each of our four core identities: gospel, community, worship, and mission. 

The Membership Class will meet in the Library, which is the first door on your right when you enter the building through the back parking lot.

If you plan to attend, please RSVP at this link.

Childcare can be provided if needed. Please let us know when you RSVP so we can secure childcare workers!
