Biographical Sketch

Henry H. Voth was born on September 15, 1918 to Herman and Maria (Ratzlaff) Voth in Kalontarovka, Russia. His early life was spent in Gnadenthal, near Winkler, Manitoba, and at Manitou, Manitoba. In 1942 he was drafted by the army, and spent some time in alternative service in Clear Lake, Manitoba. Later he enlisted in the Medical Corps as a non-combatant. In 1943 he married Erica Schroeder. His conversion came in 1943 under the ministry of Oswald Smith in Winnipeg. He was baptized into the North End Mennonite Brethren Church, now Elmwood, in 1944. He graduated from Mennonite Brethren Bible College, studied at Waterloo (Ontario) College, and graduated from the University of Western Ontario.

He then worked as principal of the Sharon Mennonite Collegiate in Yarrow, B.C. until 1956. The Yarrow Mennonite Brethren Church ordained him during this time. He studied further in Kitchener and Toronto, Ontario and graduated from the Toronto Federated Theological College in 1957. During that time he helped establish the Toronto Mennonite Brethren Church. After a term of leading the Vineland Mennonite Brethren Church (Ontario) he began teaching at MBBC in 1963. Voth was secretary of the Canadian Conference Sunday School Committee during this time.

In 1970, he left MBBC to pastor the Portage Avenue Mennonite Brethren Church in Winnipeg for ten years. In 1975 Voth received a three-month leave from the church to teach at the Instituto Biblico Asuncion. In 1978, he was appointed by the Executive Committee of the General Conference to a Study Commission assigned to study the restructuring of the General Conference; in 1979 he was appointed to represent the Canadian Conference on the MCC (Canada) Peace and Social Concerns Committee. He was enrolled in a D.Min. program at Fuller Theological Seminary in 1978, which he was not able to complete before his death. In 1980 he returned to MBBC to teach. He died in Winnipeg on March 21, 1981.

Custodial History

Conference minutes and correspondence in this fonds were donated in 1980 by H.H. Voth. Personal files and photographs were donated by Erica Voth in 1981.  In 2005 Voth's sermons were delivered to MHC by Rudy Schmidt whose brother is Vic Schmidt who married Voth's daughter Elaine (Erica).  The papers were in the possession of Erica Voth, wife of Henry H. Voth who created the materials.  The materials were transferred to CMBS by Conrad Stoesz.

Scope and Content

The Henry H. Voth fonds reflects Voth’s ongoing interest in learning, and in education. The fonds consists of notes from his student days (which continued until he died) and lecture notes from his teaching career. As a result of Voth’s activities in conference work at the General, Canadian, and Provincial levels, this fonds contains minutes and correspondence of various Boards. Records pertaining to Christian education predominate. This fonds also demonstrates Voth’s activities as a Christian counsellor, especially in the area of marriage and family. Voth was was a well-loved pastor, and some of his sermons also appear in this collection. The files, except for a few exceptions, have been left in their original arrangement.

The CMBS tape collection holds one casette of Henry Voth speaking at an MBBC chapel on 17 September 1975. The photographs are of Canadian Conference delegates.
