Today Mennonite Church Canada assumes responsibility for its fair share of mission and ministry workers and programs, bringing into reality plans that began being discussed as far back as 1983.

In Canada it means that Canadian Mennonite congregations will begin carrying the full weight of support for over 30 international and domestic mission workers, programs such as Mennonite Voluntary Service, and "new for Canada" ministries such as Youth, Young Adult, and other ministry areas.

Your generous prayer and financial support is needed to carry God’s mission into the future.
