Our theme is: Celebrating our Diversity and Unity
"You are the body of Christ, and each one of you is a part of it." 1 Cor. 12:27

Join together with Mennonite Brethren from across the United States as we gather this summer to celebrate our diversity and the mission that unites us. Our diversity, seen in the various ministry styles of our 200-plus congregations, our many ethnicities and the languages in which we worship, can offer fresh ideas, perspectives and relationships. Our commitment to One Mission—local, national and global unites us as we plant churches and evangelize our neighborhoods, pursue intentional disciple-making and prepare leaders to serve our churches and communities.

Join us for these national gatherings to be held July 24-28 in Salt Lake City, Utah.
