Established in 2022, the Brethren in Christ U.S. Legacy Society recognizes, thanks, and honors individuals who leave a gift for a BIC organization in their estate.

Society membership is available to those who give to BIC U.S., World Missions, a regional conference, or a BIC congregation through their Will, retirement plan, or other charitable giving arrangement. Together, the impact of our members now exceeds $2.5 million in ministry funding! We invite you to consider partnering with us by making a gift provision in your estate plan.

Hear from Our Members

“My late husband and I believed in the mission of the church, therefore we provided a portion for this work from our estate. I have kept this provision in my Will and find joy in thinking of this ongoing ministry.”

-Grace Holland, retired BIC U.S. missionary

“Legacy giving through our Will provides a means to give without limit or reservation when we are in the presence of Jesus and no longer need anything! We are so glad to have a way to extend our values even beyond our lifetimes.”

-Adam and Kim Forry, pastoral couple at Elizabethtown BIC (Pa.)
