US Mennonite Brethren

One Family. One Lord. One Mission

National Biennial Gatherings

Since 2004, USMB biennial gatherings have included two events—a national pastors’ conference followed by a delegate convention. The two events share a common theme, and many times the gatherings have been held at locations that have helped us become better acquainted with the diverse congregations that are part of the USMB family.   

 

National Pastors’ Conference

The National Pastors’ Conference offers USMB pastors, spouses and families the opportunity to connect with other pastors and families, to be renewed and to share tips and strategies for effective ministry.  The schedule usually includes worship and teaching sessions, workshops, affinity groups and plenty of free time.

 

 

National Convention

The National Convention is typically designed:

  • To offer worship and teaching that encourages and inspires,
  • To resource attendees with an understanding of issues facing the church and equip them to strengthen ministry, 
  • To update delegates on USMB national and binational ministries and to encourage their congregation’s support of and involvement in these ministries.   

 

Next National Gathering

The next USMB national gathering will be held at the University Guest House and Conference Center, located at The University of Utah in Salt Lake City. 

 - National Pastors' Conference: July 24-26, 2018

 - National Convention: July 26-28, 2018
