Administrative History

Regular staff newsletters and video updates are part of the organizational culture of Canadian Conference of Mennonite Brethren Churches. This collection also includes textual manuscripts of the video updates given by the executive director.

In 2014, the conference ministries were re-framed as "services" and reorganized around four headings: Building Community, Multiplying Churches, Developing Leaders, and Financial Ministries (renamed Resourcing Ministry in 2016). These news releases and video updates fit in the Resourcing Ministry service.

Scope and Content

The collection begins in 2013 and includes hard copy printouts of the news releases and staff updates that were distributed electronically by email. The collection documents well the assumptions, initiatives, and the office practices of the multi-site organization that CCMBC has become.

Custodial History

At regular intervals, Elenore Doerksen, Communications team leader, has deposited with CMBS these hard copies of the electronic communiques sent from the CCMBC office.
