"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.

The Future Church podcast

One of my favourite things to do as a pastor is to learn from other pastors and church leaders. I love discussing ministry philosophy, what they have seen work in the ministries they lead. I love hearing about the risks they are taking, and things they have learned from failures they have experienced. I usually leave those conversations with a few insights that I begin to think through and apply to my ministry context.

What If Zebedee Said, “No”

Lately, I find myself thinking about Zebedee. A minor New Testament character, Zebedee appears only when James and John abandon him and his hired hands on his fishing boat as they leave to follow Jesus (Mark 1:19-20). Zebedee never shows up again, though his name recurs repeatedly in association both with James and John and with their mother, his wife, Salome (Mark 15:40).
