The Brotherhood of the Evangelical United Brethren Church

At the General Conference held at Johnstown, Pennsylvania (November, 1946), when the former Evangelical Church and the Church of the United Brethren in Christ united, thus forming the Evangelical United Brethren Church, a convention of the lay and ministerial delegates of the Uniting General Conference was called, and the Otterbein Brotherhood and the Albright Brotherhood were merged into a Brotherhood to be known in The Evangelical United Brethren Church as the Brotherhood of the Evangelical United Brethren Church. The Brotherhood then is the successor to the Brotherhoods of these two churches and as such, carried on the objectives and traditions of the Brotherhoods of these churches.

The first Convention of the Brotherhood of The Evangelical United Brethren Church was held at Johnstown, Pennsylvania, November 20, 1946, during the uniting General Conference.
