Strengthen partnerships through Africa Inter-Mennonite Mission

In several countries in Africa, Mennonite Church Canada works together with other Mennonite organizations through Africa Inter-Mennonite Mission (AIMM). This is a rich partnership which brings African, North American, and European partners to the table together to determine how to each can contribute their gifts to help grow churches and equip leaders in various African countries.

Burkina Faso

In partnership with African Inter-Mennonite Mission, Mennonite Church Canada began working in Burkina Faso in 1978, focusing on bringing the word of God to people in their mother tongue. Over the years, Mennonite Church Canada has sent workers to serve on linguistics and church-planting teams, and worked with leadership development. Currently, Mennonite ministries in the country come together through the Burkina Faso Partnership Council, which includes Mennonite churches and organizations from Burkina Faso, France, United States and Canada. Together they provide seminars, theological training by extension and scholarships for formal training, which help raise up new leaders in the Église Evangelique Mennonite du Burkina Faso (Evangelical Mennonite Church of Burkina Faso).

Equip women for ministry in DR Congo

Mennonite Church Canada works together with other Mennonite organizations in the Democratic Republic of Congo, through Africa Inter-Mennonite Mission (AIMM). Two large Mennonite denominations grew out of this holistic ministry: Communauté Evangélique au Congo (Evangelical Mennonite Church of Congo) and Communauté Mennonite au Congo (Mennonite Church of Congo). These churches have celebrated over 100 years of Mennonite presence and witness in Congo.

Mennonite Church Canada is part of the AIMM Partnership Council in the country and supports adult-literacy ministry in DR Congo. More than 200 adult-literacy teachers have received training in the "Evangelization Through Literacy" program, initiated in 2018 by Congolese women leaders. The new teachers are already teaching more than 1,500 adults to read and write in the principal Congolese languages and report overwhelming demand for their services.
