ColombiaColombia<p>​<span aria-hidden="true"></span>In Colombia, Mennonite Mission Network relates directly with the <em>Iglesia Cristiana Menonita de Colombia, IMCOL</em> (<a href="http://www.imcol.org/"><strong>Colombia Mennonite Church</strong></a>), and its ministries. IMCOL developed from the work of General Conference Mennonite Church missionaries who arrived in Colombia in 1945. Mission Network personnel in Colombia have served in many capacities in the years since then, most currently focusing on pastoral accompaniment ministries.<br>The Colombian context of armed conflict for more than 60 years, and the resulting displacement of people and lack of job opportunities, contributes to poverty and precarious living situations. In living out Anabaptist values, the Mennonite Church works hard to respond to the needs of people in their communities and nation, and is known for its leadership in work for justice and peace at community and national levels.</p><p><br>In addition to local congregational ministries, the broader work of IMCOL includes a seminary, church planting and missions, a school, a home for the elderly, a justice and peace center, a relief and development agency, and a retreat center.</p><p><br>The IMCOL missions department partners with Mission Network and Central Plains Mennonite Conference for ministries in both Ecuador and Venezuela.</p>
