In an attempt to make more of its resources available to churches and individuals, the Centre for MB Studies (CMBS) hired Janelle Hume in spring 2009 to scan papers presented at Mennonite Brethren study conferences. Since 1956, these study conferences have been held regularly, seeking to address both doctrinal and ethical issues that arise within church life.
This collection of papers represents Mennonite Brethren thinking on a wide variety of topics. As such, this resource continues to inform the belief and practice of churches today. The Canadian conference website (under Ministries/CMBS/Theological Resources) lists all the papers from these study conferences. Please contact the Centre if you would like a copy of a study paper that authors or family members for permission to post papers.
Hume also scanned back issues of The Voice, a publication of MB Bible College from 1952–1971 and a precursor to Direction. This significant collection of articles in German and English is now available on the CMBS website.
These projects were made possible by the financial support of the Government of Canada through Library and Archives Canada, and administered by the Canadian Council of Archives.
