The Evangelical Mennonite Mission Conference (EMMC) is an evangelical body of Mennonite Christians, organized on July 1, 1959.[1]

The EMMC was formed from the Rudnerweider Mennonite Church, which was organized in 1937.[2] The Rudnerweider Mennonite Church arose in a revival that placed great emphasis on personal conversion, evangelism and missions, and split the Sommerfelder Mennonite Church in Manitoba.[3] The conference is currently (2017) made up of 23 congregations in Canada (Alberta, Manitoba, Ontario and Saskatchewan), three in Belize, and two in Mexico.[4] Offices are in Winnipeg, Manitoba. A convention is held annually.[5] The EMMC is a member of the Mennonite World Conference.[6]
