Essential Services

The United Brethren Church in Canada operates as a collective organization. That is, every local UB church is connected to every other UB church through the Canadian Conference. In addition to each local church's ministry and mission in each of their communities, many of our initiatives and operational functions are addressed collectively. Every local church financially supports the common initiatives as well as provides volunteers to serve on committees and boards to administer many initiates. Examples would be United Brethren Camps, Canadian Missions, and Church Growth etc.
