MB Mission has a vision to see churches planted among least-reached people groups where the church has a holistic witness bringing spiritual, emotional, social and physical transformation to lives, families and communities. MB Mission carries out this vision though our four services: mobilization, holistic church planting, mission capacity building, and training and team health.
The mobilization service involves strengthening the missional health of our North American churches and giving them opportunities to go, pray and give. We invite MB churches and members to serve in short-term and long-term missions, to pray for missionaries, and to financially support holistic church-planting work.
Holistic church planting is about building healthy church-planting teams that follow the Spirit’s leading and help local leaders in least-reached countries to transform their communities. Through sustained church-planting efforts, groups of missional churches can grow and reproduce themselves, which lay the foundations for forming MB conference in different countries around the world which can become part of ICOMB (International Committee of Mennonite Brethren).
Mission capacity building involves us coming alongside our partner church networks around the world to help them develop their own church-planting initiatives. Churches in our ICOMB partner conferences are strengthened and equipped though community development and leadership training so that development projects and church-planting movements can grow and thrive.
The training and team health service focuses on equipping and resourcing every member of our MB Mission team so that we can serve effectively in the mission to which God has called us. The health of each member is key if we want to maintain a long-term, transformational presence in least-reached areas around the world.
All of these services work together to build momentum towards the vision of MB Mission. Each service contributes in a unique way and is essential to reaching the vision for the future.
