EMMC





WHO WE ARE

We are the Evangelical Mennonite Mission Conference. We are a diverse family of churches that are both urban and rural, stretching from Alberta to Ontario and into Mexico, Belize and Bolivia and all have a unique ministry we are called to. As disciples of Jesus we desire to reflect the heart and character of God. Disciples of Jesus grow, not for the sake of growth or the sake of increased knowledge, but for the sake of loving God with all we are and loving our neighbor as ourselves. As we grow in our understanding of who we are and the church God has called us to be, we take action to a renewed obedience and response to Jesus' exhortation to "Make Disciples" in Matthew 28:18-20. This focus will result in God glorified.

  • SBC Leadership Conference 2018 Cancelled

    February 21, 2018

    As a Leadership Conference Planning Committee, after prayer and dialogue, we have decided to cancel the SBC Leadership Conference for this March 16-17. Our intention was to have a conversation about how the Bible teaches us to hear from God. As a committee we have heard some ask questions about how the voice of experience has come to usurp the voice of scripture in our spiritual growth. We thought inviting a decisive voice critiquing recent trends would be a bracing way to spur good dialogue and teaching. However, the announcement of Dr. Phillip Cary’s proposed presentation drew significant controversy in one of our sponsoring conferences and that conference asked us to withdraw the invitation. 

    Subsequently, the Leadership Conference Planning Committee has decided that proceeding with the presentation was not worth the divisiveness it seemed to incur. We need to be open to being challenged in our thinking but sometimes we also need to ask whether there are better ways to engage in the discussion. We still believe there is value in addressing this topic but we have decided not to pursue it at this year’s Leadership Conference. We want to thank those who gave us feedback, both in support and opposed. For those who have already signed up, you will receive a full refund. May the Spirit give us wisdom.

    Regards,

    Leadership Conference Planning Committee
