We are very grateful to have established a new 3-year affiliation with MB Seminary, CCMBC and CMU to continue offering a Manitoba Mennonite Brethren pathway in graduate-level training. Andrew Dyck and Pierre Gilbert remain on faculty at CMU. As in the past, they will be involved in our Mennonite Brethren Conference Faith and Life Teams, preaching and teaching in our churches and mentoring graduate students.
For students, the course requirements are very similar to the previous years, with no significant changes to their graduation requirements. Students will continue to have a Mennonite Brethren faculty advisor and are still eligible for CMU GSTM scholarships and bursaries.
Our goal is to continue finding the best ways to train leaders and build on our Mennonite Brethren theological convictions. The plan includes greater involvement by MBCM and provides a 3-year window to discern the future of graduate-level theological training in Manitoba. We look forward to how this affiliation will continue to equip our MBCM churches and leaders! Thank you to everyone who has contributed to this process.
