USMB VISION

USMB has embraced a new vision: to help empower each local Mennonite Brethren church to reach its full, God-given ministry potential within the framework of our evangelical and Anabaptist distinctives.

We have shifted away from traditional ‘denominational’ structures to a networking strategy that includes:

  • building a strong national presence to catalyze, support and help resource our local churches and districts for ministry,
  • focusing on an organic networking of churches and leaders instead of a centralized structure and
  • zeroing in on three core commitments that will allow us to have maximum Kingdom impact.

Our three core commitments are:

  • church multiplication and evangelism,
  • intentional disciple-making and
  • leadership development.

Networking—churches connecting with other churches in an organic manner—is a major aspect of this new vision. When churches share resources and develop closer relationships within our family of churches, it forms a strong loyalty to a common vision. The USMB staff will help create appropriate environments where collective involvement takes place as churches naturally mesh with other churches.

This fresh vision calls for centering our mutual efforts around developing community with one another, including increased idea sharing, resourcing and gathering more often for learning. The spotlight will be on our three core commitments. As we fulfill these commitments, it will create excitement that inspires us to share our stories —strengthening one another through connection and celebration.

This new collective effort includes enhanced social media connections, specialized ministry cohorts, LEAD One regional events for leadership development, life coaching for pastors and a new USMB website. We’ll work hard to plant more churches in collaboration with our districts and C2C U.S., which has offered its resources and support to enhance our USMB church planting initiatives. It’s about doing what we can to reduce our own silos of ministry and to think openly with a collective USMB mindset.

MB Mission has committed to providing their resources and staff for assistance in creating meaningful ways for all of us to learn and grow in the areas of the three core commitments. MB Foundation is a vital partner as well, not only for support but for facilitating training venues and teaching about generosity. There’s a whole lot of positive going on as we move forward.

As we work together there will be great benefit that spreads and intensifies. The overall reason for all of this? It’s to reach more people with the gospel.

Join us as we explore what it means to network together in order to maximize each local church’s God-given ministry vision.

Increasing Impact: Together!
