Mennonite Men USA | Mennonite Archival Commons

Name: Mennonite Men USA

Historical Note: Established in 1950, one of Mennonite Men's early projects sent volunteers and a bulldozer to assist thousands of Mennonite settlers in Paraguay in constructing the Trans-Chaco Highway to provide rural farmers access to sell their crops in Asuncion. During the 1960s and 1970s, Mennonites served a variety of causes and institutions which caused the organization to be relatively innactive until the Tenth Man church building project (now JoinHands--an organization that provides grants to help new congregations acquire their first church building) gained traction in 1983. Formally an auxillary institution to the General Conference Mennonite Church, Mennonite Men primarily exist now as a bi-national organization in the North American Mennonite Church (Mennonite Church Canada and Mennonite Church USA) and provides assistance and resources to address Mennonite men's experiences.
