We tell stories and listen to them every day—not just in our conversations but in the news, in the movies and in novels. Stories help us make sense of our lives and the world. They connect us to one another and to people who lived long ago. Stories help us understand the truths that give our lives meaning.
The Bible tells God’s story and invites us to be part of his great work in our world and in our lives. U.S. Mennonite Brethren are part of God’s story and the Christian Leader tells stories specifically for the USMB family.
These stories strive to deepen our understanding of our evangelical and Anabaptist distinctives and to generate conversations over topics pertinent to our faith and our daily life. We focus on our agreed-upon core commitments—church planting and evangelism, intentional disciple-making and leadership development. We highlight the contributions of partner ministries, encourage networking, feature practical ministry efforts and emphasize empowering local congregations.
