Family Matters is an excellent resource for anyone new to the U.S. Mennonite Brethren family and is recommended reading for those being credentialed as pastors and staff in Mennonite Brethren churches as well as those attending the biennial National Pastors Orientation. It begins with the origins of the Mennonite Brethren Church, including a brief look at where Mennonite Brethren fit into church history, and then describes our theological distinctives. The book concludes with a look at the North American Mennonite Brethren story.
This book was revised in 2022, which means the stories and information included about USMB and Mennonite Brethren ministries worldwide are up-to-date and reflect recent events. The revision was edited by Connie Faber, Christian Leader editor, and reflects revisions made in 2017 by the Canadian Conference of MB Churches to the first edition of Family Matters, written in 2002 by Faber and Lynn Jost, of Fresno Pacific Biblical Seminary.
