“As a mission agency of Virginia Mennonite Conference, Virginia Mennonite Missions invites people to faithful living in Jesus Christ by forming and enabling congregations and individuals to continue God’s reconciling work in the world.”
“[We] seek God’s direction in calling out and sending forth a growing, diverse community of believers, empowered by the Holy Spirit to transform the world and to be transformed through the reconciling work of Jesus Christ.”
Founded in 1919, Virginia Mennonite Missions remains one of the few mission agencies in the Mennonite Church still closely connected to its parent conference. While Virginia Conference of Mennonite Church USA has been a significant locus of VMM’s missional activity over the years, VMM also has historically been in partnership with Mennonite churches in the Caribbean and Mediterranean regions. Because the places in which VMM ministers has grown, in recent years VMM has developed a structure of global ministries and USA ministries.
Currently, Virginia Mennonite Missions sends and supports workers, partnering with the church through shorter-term and long-term service in many countries to participate in God’s reconciling work in the world.
