Canadian Conference Yearbooks

Description

Early on in their formation, Mennonite Brethren adopted the practice of an annual convention, a meeting where churches sent delegates to debate resolutions, to report on the work of various committees and ministries, and to decide together on certain courses of action. The evidence points to the influence of a German Baptist minister named August G.A. Liebig (1836-1914), who was invited in 1866 to come for several weeks to help bring order to early turbulence of the Mennonite renewal movement (Brudergemeinde). In 1871, Liebig came again and spent a whole year among the Mennonite Brethren. As a result, in 1872, the Mennonite Brethren were the first of the Mennonite groups to organize into a conference with annual conventions.

A Conference Yearbook is the publication documenting the annual proceedings of the Canadian Conference of Mennonite Brethren Churches. The Yearbook contains ministry reports, financial statements and budget, election slate of officers, resolutions, and minutes of the business sessions.

Below is a listing of the convention Yearbooks with links to their digital reproductions. For the years earlier than 1988, contact CMBS.

Note: For the years 2010 and forward, the complete audited financial statements are appended at the end of the yearbook covering the particular years.
