PA 2015 by the numbers

Release date: 
Wednesday, 13 January 2016

Bogotá, Colombia – Mennonite World Conference’s (MWC) 16th Assembly in Pennsylvania, USA, connected Anabaptists from around the world, in person and electronically.

A new statistics poster released by MWC illustrates the final numbers from PA 2015. There are many interesting facts, for example: 75 percent of visa applications were accepted and 4.25 tons of waste were composted.

More people participated electronically than at any previous MWC Assembly: more than 21,700 viewed the live stream and more than 250,000 engaged with MWC’s Facebook page.

MWC invites all our congregations to continue celebrating the theme from PA 2015, “Walking with God,” by joining us for World Fellowship Sunday celebrations on 24 January 2016.
