MB History and Heroes

LEAD Pods is a USMB podcast devoted to leadership development and spiritual growth. It's "the best of us to the rest of us." Hosted by Matt Ehresman.

EP. 091 - NOV 16, 2023

Our MB faith tradition is full of incredible stories and faithful heroes. In this week's episode, Peggy Goertzen (the director of the Center for Mennonite Brethren Studies) shares insight and introduces us to some of the first MB leaders established in the U.S.

She shares two particularly interesting and noteworthy stories of how early MB pastors took huge risks to start a school for black children in North Carolina (at a time when this was unheard of!), plus early and important outreach to the Comanche tribes in Oklahoma.

We have a rich history to be proud of, and these stories highlight the common thread of our ongoing efforts to care for others while sharing the Gospel.

CORD. USMB is committed to partnering with immigrant congregations. In a world where more than 270 million people are on the move, migration provides an opportunity for our USMB family to consider the mission of the Church. Increasingly, the mission is on U.S. soil. The CORD acronym describes USMB’s partnership with immigrant churches:

  • Connecting immigrant churches to resources and other congregations within our MB family.
  • Organizing and assisting with establishing a stable place of worship.
  • Retooling through biblical training and educational resources centered around our USMB Confession of Faith.
  • Developing pastors and key leaders capable of shepherding a healthy church.
