General Assembly | Mennonite Archival Commons

Name: General Assembly

Historical Note:

The General Assembly of the Mennonite Church was formed in 1971.   Following a church-wide reorganization study in the 1960s, the regional conferences of the Mennonite Church in the United States and Canada created the General Assembly.  The General Assembly met biennially and was composed of delegates from the participating Mennonite Church conferences.   

The work of the Mennonite Church General Assembly was largely conducted by the General Board, a body consisting of an executive secretary, board and agency secretaries, and regional conference representatives. 

The General Assembly was dissolved in 2002 with the merger of the Mennonite Church and the General Conference Mennonite Church.  The equivalent organization created in the newly formed Mennonite Church USA was designated the Delegate Assembly.
