Early in December, Mennonite Brethren Church of Manitoba and MB Mission Central Canada moved back to share premises with the Canadian Conference of Mennonite Brethren Churches in Winnipeg.
CCMBC also extends its accounting, IT, secretarial support and HR resources. “This move allows for greater collaboration, eliminates redundancies, and reduces costs, giving us the ability to direct more funds toward education, leadership development, church planting, training and resource development,” says MBCM executive director Elton DaSilva.
“This is one way to strengthen our connection with ICOMB, CCMBC, MBCM – and puts us only a few minutes’ drive away from three universities,” says MB Mission Central Canada mobilizer Lloyd Letkeman. “We look forward to the synergies that will develop as we give ourselves to Jesus’s mission among MB churches, universities, and colleges in local and global capacities.”
CCMBC also shares office space with provincial partners in Abbotsford, B.C., and Calgary.
