Over the past few months, our communications team has worked diligently at updating the design and content of MB Herald. Our goal is to be a platform that shares our collective stories and inspires the mission of the Mennonite Brethren. As we continue the redevelopment of MB Herald, we hope to communicate well with our churches in effective and relevant ways.

You have an important role to play in this family magazine. In this new era of collaboration among Mennonite Brethren, I hope your church will be a champion for this important family communication channel.

There are several ways you can do this:

$14 per year covers production costs for one year. Donate online or send a cheque to MB Herald, 1310 Taylor Avenue, Winnipeg, MB R3M 3Z6.

In print, via email, to the website RSS feed (sidebar), to the podcast, and on social media. Talk to your church administrator about participating in a bulk subscription through the church.

Interact with MB Herald on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, and on the website. Write a letter to the editor. Join the next book club.

Tell your congregation about this resource for ministry and community building by referring to articles in your sermons and teachings. Give your paper copy to a friend. Post articles on your social media feeds.

Thank you for your continued support.

We recently moved and one of the first things we did was change our address for the MB Herald. After I picked up my latest Herald, I got to read it while my daughter and I were waiting in the long line at the car wash.
