MENNONITE CENTRAL COMMITTEE
Mennonite Central Committee (MCC) is a global, nonprofit organization that strives to share God’s love and compassion for all through relief, development and peace.
In all our programs, we are committed to relationships with our local partners and churches.
As an Anabaptist organization, we strive to make peace a part of everything we do. When responding to disasters, we work with local groups to distribute resources in ways that minimize conflict. In our development work, we plan with community and church groups to make sure the projects meet their needs. And we advocate for policies that will lead to a more peaceful world.
We hope you will be part of our work of relief, development, and peace in the name of Christ.
BRETHREN IN CHRIST WORLD MISSIONS
Approaching 1900, the only BIC congregations were in North America. There was yet to be a vision for reaching "the ends of the earth" and no BIC missions agency existed. All of this changed dramatically as God began revealing His heart for the unreached.
A bold plea from a young woman named Rhoda Lee at General Conference 1894 opened the way for Brethren in Christ global outreach. And a first gift of $5 – given in faith by Jacob Stauffer – started the Brethren in Christ on a journey to the nations.
By 1990, 212 years into our denomination’s history, the BIC outside North America had grown to over 200,000 worshipers. Today, 75% of BIC congregations are outside North America. With churches and worksin Central America, Cuba, the Middle East, Asia (including works in Nepal and Orissa, India), Europe, and Central and Southern Africa, BICWM has focused on reaching the unreached with a full sense of salvation and restoration of the people for whom Christ died.
Wesleyan Holiness Consortium
The Wesleyan Holiness Consortium is truly that – a consortium of leaders and churches centered not on an organizational alliance but upon our common message: that the power of Jesus is stronger than sin and the Holy Spirit of God will transform the believer radically to live this life in accordance to the holy character of God.
Thus, we faithfully respond to God’s call to be a holy people, while also honoring the prayer of Jesus that we be one.
