ENGLEWOOD, Colorado (Mennonite Mission Network) – 

Over 80 church leaders from across the country came together for SENT 2019 at Beloved Community Mennonite Church on April 26-28 in Englewood, Colorado. The SENT conference, now in its fourth year, is a peace church conference hosted by Mennonite Mission Network that helps connect, inspire, and equip church leaders to seed new churches, as well as reinvigorate legacy congregations. The weekend conference was marked by blues-influenced worship, small group seminars, and an introduction to the SENT Network, a six-month education course for church planters that will be released in the fall.


"It's good to see that Mennonite Church USA, through Mennonite Mission Network is taking seriously the call to plant churches," said Clyde Kratz, executive conference minister for Virginia Mennonite conference. "[The Church's] future is bright. And that brightness comes from planting these first-generation churches, and supporting them."
