Mennonite Church Canada
“A modern miracle” some call Canadian Mennonite University (CMU), because it was formed in 1999 when Concord College (an MB school) merged with Canadian Mennonite Bible College (a school attended largely by GC Mennonites) and Menno Simons College. As such, CMU was a suitable host for an event celebrating the history and exploring the interactions of Mennonite Brethren (MB) and General Conference (GC) Mennonites, both of which formally organized in 1860.
Delegates from across Canada met at the University of Saskatchewan in Saskatoon, June 5–7 for the 10th annual meeting of Mennonite Church Canada. The theme was “living inside out” (Colossians 3:12–17).
