The International Community of Mennonite Brethren (ICOMB) is made up of 21 national churches in 19 countries with approximately 450,000 members. ICOMB exists to facilitate relationships and ministries to enhance the witness and discipleship of its member national churches – connecting, strengthening and expanding.

Big news

I have informed ICOMB that I will retire on June 30, 2018. Please pray for our future leader, structure and finances.

I continue to be amazed at the power and flexibility of the gospel. It really “works” in every culture! But we must be careful when we seek to apply it. The community of Christ must covenant to live in love and contextualize the gospel together.

It has been a tremendous blessing to serve ICOMB. I have been deeply enriched through the leaders and churches all over the world. And thank you for supporting me in prayer.

—David Wiebe, executive director
