God’s People Now! Listening Tour continues

Winnipeg, Man. — In recognition that the church is a system with many interconnected and intersecting parts, Robert J. Suderman, General Secretary of Mennonite Church Canada will extend his 2006 listening tour of over 200 congregations to area churches, schools, and affiliated agencies this spring.

Seventeen organizations with strong connections to Mennonite Church Canada are an expression of the church’s desire to extend its reach of ministry as far as possible, said Suderman. All have been contacted and will be visited to learn more about their ministries, where their energy is spent, and discuss their concerns and needs.

“The writer of the letter to the Hebrews says that we should not neglect to meet together but rather we should meet to encourage each other (Hebrews 10:25),” wrote Suderman in his letter of invitation.

The ultimate goal, says Suderman, is to strengthen partnership relationships, identify common objectives, and find out how the denomination and its partners can together more effectively work at the church’s mission in the world.
