Control of MCC programming shifts north: $2.5-million Wineskins process wraps up
Mennonite Central Committee’s four-year, $2.5-million review process is over, and the single most significant outcome is a power shift from MCC’s Akron, Pennsylvania office to its Winnipeg office.

Its reach extends to 62 countries abroad, and in North America it encompasses 14 denominations, covering the spectrum from Amish grandmothers to The Meeting House, a Brethren in Christ congregation and Canada’s coolest mega-church.
