ELKHART, Indiana (Mennonite Church USA) — Mennonite Church USA (MC USA) Executive Board is strengthening its ongoing commitment to creation care and climate justice by expanding its Peace & Justice ministries to include Mennonite Creation Care Network (MCCN).

The transition is the result of a mutual agreement with Everence®, an agency of MC USA that has previously provided administrative services for MCCN and continues to provide financial support, and Merry Lea Environmental Learning Center of Goshen College, which has managed the daily operations since its formation in 2005. The transition process will begin Aug. 1, 2023.

Mennonite Church USA Executive Board is creating a permanent, part-time staff position for a climate justice coordinator to oversee the work of MCCN and help to shape its future. Jennifer Halteman Schrock, director of MCCN since 2016, will step down from her part-time role on Sept. 30, 2023.
