The Executive Board of Mennonite Church USA has voted to hold the denomination’s biennial Delegate Assembly online due to uncertainty around COVID-19 gathering restrictions. Originally scheduled to meet in person on July 6-10, 2021, in Cincinnati, Ohio, the Delegate Assembly will meet virtually on Saturday, July 10, from 1 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. ET.
While the 2021 MC USA Delegate Assembly will be a virtual event, the denomination is still planning a hybrid MennoCon21 convention with in-person events to take place in Cincinnati.
MC USA convention staff are continuing to move forward with previously announced plans for a hybrid MennoCon21 convention, centered on worship, fellowship and education. According to Executive Director Glen Guyton, the staff is working closely with city officials, venue management and church leaders.
