It's our privilege to partner in ministry with a host of mission agencies, missionaries, and para-church organizations. We're blessed to have the opportunity support these Christian brothers and sisters with prayers and volunteer hours as they share the gospel in our local community and around the world. Media Mennonite Church is also convinced that it's our duty to support our partners financially, so we sponsor several missionary families with monthly financial support and we occasionally devote entire offerings to groups outside our church. The following organizations are among those we support with prayers and dollars:
At Media, our denominationl affiliation is with a group called AMEC, Alliance of Mennonite Evangelical Congregations. If you'd like to know more about the particulars of what we believe and teach at Media you can check out the AMEC "Purposes and Principles" page at AMEC's website.
