International Witness & Indigenous Relations

International Witness

Mennonite Church Canada International Witness is committed to the creation, resourcing or strengthening of Anabaptist/Mennonite faith communities and our shared commitment to witness to God’s work in the world.

International Witness seeks to do the following:

  1. Support the emergence of new faith communities.
  2. Foster the vitality of existing faith communities.
  3. Equip leadership for these communities.
  4. Enrich disciple-making ministries.
  5. Support communication between congregations of the regional churches and the wider church, whether nationwide or global.
  6. Build mutually transformative relationships across political, ethnic and religious borders.

Extend your hands across the table to learn from brothers and sisters around the world.

Indigenous Relations

Indigenous Relations helps Mennonite communities grow in our awareness of host peoples and the realities of settler colonialism, and nurture justice-based friendships. Our aim is to honour the Truth and Reconciliation Commission’s Calls to Action and live into the UN Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples as we pursue the costly path of Christ.


Mennonite Church Canada's Indigenous Relations program works to support interested congregations and regional working groups through prayerful dialogue, sharing of educational and financial resources, and collective action. We help connect constituent communities to Indigenous and settler persons, teachers, theological and social justice organizations that can be of help, and who are interested in pursuing peace and justice together.

Critical to this work is Indigenous theological learning - theology not simply for native peoples, but for non-natives too. The Mennonite expression of Christian faith is beautiful and has incredible strengths, but it’s been deeply impacted by colonial thinking and practices. Together, we need to re-think aspects of settler Christianity to discover a gospel that is more faithful to both host people and this “home and native” land that we share.
