MHC 2021 PRESENTERS
MHC IS EXCITED TO ANNOUNCE
BIC National Director
will be our speaker Sunday and Monday -7PM
Alan has been serving as national director of Brethren in Christ U.S. since 2013.
Alan’s journey to the BIC family begins in his home country of Northern Ireland. Coming to personal faith at a young age through an Independent Methodist Church and discerning a call to pastoral ministry, Alan has served as a church planter and pastor across the United Kingdom. Along the way, he received a bachelor’s degree from Nazarene Theological College of Manchester University in 1993 and a master’s degree in applied theology from the University of Oxford in 1997.
Following his graduation from the University of Oxford, Alan and his family moved to the U.S. while he pursued a doctor of ministry at Asbury Theological Seminary. It was during this time that he first heard of the Brethren in Christ. In 1999, Alan became senior pastor of Carlisle (Pa.) BIC (now The Meeting House – Carlisle Campus).
Alan has been involved in BIC Church life in many ways — as chair of the Commission on Ministry and Doctrine, chair and faculty member of Equipping for Ministry, assistant moderator for the Susquehanna Conference, and representative to the National Association of Evangelicals. In addition to his doctorate from Asbury Seminary, he also earned his Ph.D. in administration and leadership from Indiana University of Pennsylvania in 2012.
Alan lives in Dillsburg, Pa., with his wife, Sharon. They have two adult daughters and five grandchildren. Other than ministry, Alan’s main passion is soccer, having refereed and officiated at the college level for more than 20 years. To stay in shape for his referee work, Alan enjoys running and has participated in many marathons, including a 50-mile ultramarathon.
will be our missions speaker tuesday -7PM
Chris currently serves in the role of Support Coordinator with BIC U.S. World Missions.
He has 17 years of pastoral ministry experience, spanning from York, PA to the northern tier of the Pocono Mountain region and eventually to Lancaster, PA. He holds a Master’s degree in New Testament Studies and a second Master’s degree in World Christianity, both from Evangelical Seminary. He also holds a DMin in Missional Leadership from Missio Seminary. Chris is the author of A New Look at Hospitality as a Key to Missions (Energion Publications, 2014) which is volume 8 in the Aeropagus Critical Christian Issues series.
Chris lives just south of Lancaster, PA with his wife of 20 years, Stacey, and their two daughters, Emma and Ana. He likes to stay active through running and exercising, and he enjoys a good cup of coffee (with Hazelnut creamer). He also enjoys baseball, rooting for both Cleveland and Baltimore.
Pastor Adam Forry
Will be our speaker Wednesday - Friday 7pm
Adam Forry grew up as part of the Mount Pleasant BIC congregation, Mount Joy, Pa., where generations of his father’s family attended. Since graduating from Messiah College in 1999, Adam has served in pastoral ministry for nearly 22 years in four congregations, including as senior pastor of Elizabethtown Brethren in Christ Church (EBIC), Elizabethtown, Pa, since 2019. In 2008, he completed his Master of Arts in Ministry at Lancaster Bible College.
As a “cradle BIC,” Adam is excited that the BIC faith family has expanded and crossed potential barriers of all kinds to become a diverse, international church with 80 percent of its people outside North America. He sees local churches as the center of God’s work in the world as they seek to reach people for Christ, disciple believers, and make an impact locally and globally.
Adam enjoys reading, playing games, and trying new foods. He and his wife, Kimberly, live in Manheim, Pa., with their daughter, Cassie, and sons, Trace and Liam.
Pastor Luke Embree
Will be our Speaker, Monday and Wednesday 10am
Luke Embree is Outreach Pastor at Plowshares Brethren in Christ in Lexington, KY. In addition to his pastoral work he is developing a business model to aid future church planters, creating a reliable source of income while building credibility in the community in which they are called to serve. Luke holds a Bachelor of Science in Organizational Leadership from Pennsylvania State University and a Master of Divinity from Asbury Theological Seminary with a concentration in Theological Studies. He lives with his wife and fellow pastor Christina and their three children Hannah, Naomi, and Caleb in Lexington, KY.
