In June 2013, the Canadian conference executive board gathered at Stillwood Camp and Conference Centre to seek the Lord for the right words to describe our focus – our mission – for the coming years. As we sought the Lord together, he began to coalesce in us, through the power of the Spirit, words to capture what we felt we were being called to. For the past year and half, we’ve vetted those words across the country with leaders, churches, pastors. At Gathering 2014, delegates affirmed the new mission statement in principle. We were then tasked with finalizing that statement, which was done by the executive board at our January 2015 board meetings. Our new Canadian Conference of Mennonite Brethren Churches mission statement is: “We exist to multiply Christ-centred churches to see Canada transformed by the good news of Jesus Christ.”
