"Supporting SKMB Churches and Camps in making disciples."

Our Saskatchewan History

Chapter 1

Pioneers began the church.

The story of Mennonite Brethren in Saskatchewan is far richer that most of us suspect. They’ve played a key role in the growth of our church across Canada. Of course, they had a significant role opening up the prairies, but they were also leaders on a number of fronts for the church. What few today realize is just how often Saskatchewan Mennonite Brethren played the role of starters for Mennonite Brethren elsewhere in Canada. They were the first to open a Bible school, the first to begin a radio ministry, the first to run a camping program, the first to begin a widespread home missions program, the first to embrace the shift to the use of English in their churches in the Canadian brotherhood. There is a remarkable history with important insights. They shared their wealth of leadership with the entire Mennonite Brethren fellowship.

A Good Word

The power of wise counsel.
 
“Getting wisdom is the wisest thing you can do!”
Proverbs 4:7a NLT
 
“Who is a wise man?  He who learns of all men.”
The Talmud[i]

There are particular people God allows to cross our path of discipleship, fellow sojourners who change the trajectory of our spiritual formation.  I remember the good word given to me by Haldane Rowan, director of Capernwray Torchbearers Australia.  His good word came to me when I was a twenty-two-year-old student at Capernwray and, at best, a lukewarm disciple of Jesus
