Name: Mennonite General Conference. Church Welfare Committee

Historical Note:

The Mennonite General Conference Church Welfare Committee started out as the General Problems Committee, an elected committee established by the Mennonite General Conference constitution of 1929.  Prior, a Dress Comittee with appointed membership had been established in 1911 and functioned until 1921. The General Problems Committee handled matters of "separation from the world" and made statements on matters such as unionism (1937) and divorce (1955).

In 1961, the committee name was changed to Church Welfare Committee, and it began to address issues affecting peace and unity within the church.  The committee was dissolved when the Mennonite General Conference was replaced by the Mennonite Church General Assembly in 1971.
