FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Mennonite Church Canada and The Mennonite Trust conclude assignment in United Kingdom

International Witness Workers, Michael and Cheryl Nimz, will return to Canada June 2019

Winnipeg, MB - Mennonite Church Canada and The Mennonite Trust have mutually decided to conclude the assignment of Witness workers Michael and Cheryl Nimz in the United Kingdom.

During their time in the UK, Michael and Cheryl Nimz demonstrated passion for ministry, relationship building and commitment to Anabaptist principles. Mennonite Church Canada and The Mennonite Trust have enjoyed a mutually beneficial collaboration since 2013, when Michael and Cheryl began their ministry assignment in the United Kingdom. We have appreciated the efforts Michael and Cheryl have made to connect with people beyond the current reach of the Anabaptist Network, and educate them about the Anabaptist tradition. They have interacted especially well with young adults and those on the fringes of the church, making effective use of social media as well as face-to-face conversations. We affirm that their ministry among these people has been greatly valued.

Mennonite Church Canada invites prayer for the Michael and Cheryl as they return to Canada and leave a meaningful ministry and friendship network. We trust that Michael and Cheryl will be able to share their learnings and experiences over the past five-and-a-half years with Mennonite congregations in Canada.
