"We are grateful for the gifts we share in our family of faith: missionaries who have given their lives to bear witness to Christ; brothers and sisters willing to serve the needy; teachers who disciple others with their life and character; pastors who care for local congregations; donors who give generously to the work of Christ; peacemakers who model a new way of dealing with conflicts in the manner of Jesus. Our global community is greatly blessed!"
President: J. Nelson Kraybill
Congregation: Prairie Street Mennonite, Elkhart, Indiana, USA
"Through MWC relationships, I have seen the greatest hope, deepest faith and most lifegiving Christian community among Christians in places of material or political insecurity. Power and wealth create a false sense of self-sufficiency instead of a bedrock of unshakeable assurance and joy in knowing Jesus."
Vice-President: Rebecca Osiro
Congregation: Eastleigh Mennonite Church, Nairobi, Kenya
"MWC’s genius is fellowship and networking. We share our stories. We come together and find that we are one. We find strength beyond class, beyond status. MWC gives me courage."
Treasurer: Sunoko Lin
Congregation: Maranatha Christian Fellowship, Reseda, California, USA
"Serving the global Anabaptist-Mennonite church has deepened my spiritual formation. My prayer for the global church is that God would bring peace, comfort and hope to suffering members of Anabaptist/Mennonite global family impacted by COVID-19. This has brought a great loss: not only human lives but also economic severity in many developing countries. God, have mercy!"
President-elect: Henk Stenvers
Congregation: Doopsgezinde Gemeente Bussum-Naarden, Netherlands
"What I have learned through serving the global Anabaptist-Mennonite church is to appreciate the work of the Holy Spirit in all parts of the world, in so many different contexts, creating a wonderful diverse communion."
