By the numbers


The 2010 U.S. Conference convention is notable for a variety of reasons. It’s the year the biennial convention was renamed Conection. It was historic, held as part of the North American celebration of the 150th anniversary of the Mennonite Brethren Church. And unfortunately, attendance was considerably lower than projected.
