MCC at 100 – 2021 Mennonite Studies Conference

Mennonites, Service and the Humanitarian Impulse

In 1920 Mennonites in Canada and the U.S. formed Mennonite Central Committee (MCC) to aid famine-ravaged Mennonite communities in southern Russia (present-day Ukraine). Over the ensuing century, MCC has grown to embrace service in more than 60 countries. It has also brought together a wide variety of Mennonite groups, including Brethren in Christ and Amish, and served as a force for global ecumenical and interfaith partnerships. This centennial conference presents papers that examine the past, present, and future of MCC. The papers reflect on the Mennonites’ response to the biblical call to love one’s neighbour through practical acts of service.
