  • Fait partie de Conference of Mennonites in Canada fonds

Much of this material consists of correspondence with individual mission stations. Approximatly 0.5 meters of the material in these files dates from before 1962. Among this material are minutes (1940-1971), reports, and correspondence (1943-1959). The oldest Board of Missions material is the financial ledger for the years 1914-1957. This ledger was begun by G.G. Epp and was maintained by P.P. Epp from 1927-1931. Both these men served as treasurer for the Missions Committee.

The David Toews files, is only indirectly related to the CMC Board of Missions. Toews served as field secretary responsible for the Canadian operations of the Home Missions Board of the General Conference Mennonite Church (1917-1946) and as member of the CMC Committee for Home Missions from 1943-1945, but the majority of these records are related to his General Conference involvements. The correspondence has all been filed alphabetically. One file of material in these records pertains to the CMC Archives but it appears to have been created by J.J. Thiessen, not by David Toews. The bulk of the material relates to the assistance which the General Conference provided for the creation of new churches in Canada in the years 1923-1946.

The H.J. Gerbrandt files reflect his involvement as field secretary (1959-1960) and secretary (1961-1965) of the Mission Board, as well as his service with Mennonite Pioneer Mission. Most of the material consists of correspondence, minutes, and reports. The files employ an alphabetical filing system.

George Groening served as a member of the Board of Missions for ten years during which period he was vice-chairman for one year (1958) and chairman for six years (1961-1966). Groening also served as chairman of the Mennonite Pioneer Mission Board before its amalgamation with CMC Board of Missions. His records contain a total of 1.36 meters of correspondence, minutes, agendas, and reports (both general and local) from the years 1948-1966. The H.H. Penner files cover approximately the same period as the Groening files and the types of material are quite similar as well. There is no obvious filing order in the collection.

The Mennonite Pioneer Mission (MPM) was operated by the conference of Mennonites in Canada since 1960. Some pre-1960 records in these files seem to have been transferred to the Conference in 1960. The J.N. Braun treasurer files (1942-1961) fall into this category. The early financial records of Mennonite Pioneer Mission are not entirely complete. Some of the pre-1949 ledgers were retained by the Bergthaler Mennonite Church of Manitoba, founders of the Mennonite Pioneer Mission. The files also contain correspondence for the years 1931-1948. Finally there are also minutes of the MPM Board for the years 1944-1959. The post-1960 period the MPM files were generated by the CMC Board of Missions' executive secretaries. They were responsible for overseeing all MPM operations. There is considerable correspondence with people from the various mission stations. In 1971 the structure was again changed, and MPM received its own executive secretary, while the other facets of Board of Missions work were taken over by the newly formed Congregational Resources Board.

This record sub-series has intriguing research possibilities. The materials are useful for studying the history of several northern Manitoba native communities or the history of missions in Canada, and for doing cross-cultural studies. There are also possibilities for demographic studies, especially with regard to migration of Mennonites in Canada. The Board of Missions files could also be of considerable interest to the local historians who is trying to reconstruct the church development in their community.

The Canadian Mennonite Youth Organization

The sub series correspondence concentrates on the following subjects; administration of the CMYO, publications of the CMYO, special projects (e.g. fundraising for Mennonite Pioneer Mission), involvement with young people's organizations in the United States. The records appear to be complete for the years 1953-1966. In the years following 1960 the amount of correspondence decreased somewhat. In addition to this the collection has a complete set of CMYO minutes for the years 1947-1966 and a number of reports. The files also contain a few issues of Mennonite Youth (1960-1962) and the Young Peoples' Messenger (1947-1950). An complete set of the Young Peoples' Messenger can be found in the CMC Publications files. The financial records in this sub-series consist of three ledgers and several cheque and receipt book for the years 1951-1959.

The collection has considerable interest for researchers doing a historical study of the CMC, especially if they have an interest in leadership development. The CMYO served as a virtual training school for a generation of conference leaders. These materials are quite illuminating when examined in the light of other CMC records. This collection could also be of use to anyone with an interest in Canada youth and their organizations.
