Call for volunteers

Imagine Doug Klassen, executive minister of Mennonite Church Canada, singing a song by an acclaimed ‘90s grunge band at MC Canada’s next nationwide gathering.

It may sound far-fetched, but our counterparts in the United States have a sense of what that would be like.

MC U.S.A. installs first African American executive director 

Glen Guyton was installed as executive director of Mennonite Church U.S.A. on Aug. 18, 2018, at College Mennonite Church in Goshen, Ind. The service celebrated the beginning of his tenure, which began on May 1. Guyton is the first African American to serve as executive director of MC U.S.A. His installation marks a significant moment in the denomination’s history. Bishop L.W. Francisco III and Titus Peachey, two spiritual leaders whom Guyton credits as teaching him what it means to be an Anabaptist Christian, led parts of the installation.

On confessions of faith

Confession of Faith in a Mennonite Perspective was published in 1995 and is still used by Mennonite Church Canada and Mennonite Church USA.

You may have heard about what happened at Mennonite Church USA’s convention earlier this month, specifically with regard to same-sex marriage and LGBTQ Mennonites. And, like me, you may be saddened by the hurtful interactions that occurred as our sister-church gathered.
