Future of Mennonite Men Ministry – Call for Feedback:  The board of Mennonite Men, our bi-national ministry by and for men (see, is considering the future of this ministry in Canada.  As a small, volunteer presence in Canada, it has been difficult to gauge interest and need to adequately serve the men of our constituency.  Do men long for opportunities to grow, serve and give alongside other men?  Is there a need for a service specific to men’s faith and well-being in our current world?  Are there specific resources or questions relevant to men that we might assist with?  Are there men interested in becoming involved as participants and/or leaders in this ministry?  We invite your feedback as we discern together.  Please contact Canadian Coordinator Don Neufeld at or 905-650-2577, or Ontario board member Doug Amstutz at or 519-503-9769, with any questions or comments.
