An at-a-glance guide to the programs and ministries of Mennonite Church Canada

For: Pastors, Lay Leaders, Church Councils and Boards, Treasurers, Congregational Administrators, Mission & Service Committees, Worship Committees, Christian Education and Sunday School Superintendents and Teachers

On February 1, 2002, Mennonite Church Canada assumed several new responsibilities from the former bi-national church. If you have questions about what this means for your congregation, please call 204-888-6781 and ask to speak with Dan Nighswander, Jack Suderman, Justina Heese, Gerhard Epp, or Pam Peters-Pries.

Some of your questions may also be answered in our About » Structure page.
