The city of Wooster, county seat of Wayne County, welcomes the Fellowship of Grace Brethren to the Vision2020 conference this July. A bustling community with a population of about 26,000 set in the bucolic countryside of east-central Ohio, Wooster is set in Wayne County (named for George Washington’s war colleague General “Mad Anthony” Wayne) and is distinguished by its rural charm, rolling hills, lush woods, and scenic farmland. It is known as the “Gateway to Amish Country,” as Wayne and several counties to the south are home to the world’s largest Amish population.
