WHAT IS MCC?
Mennonite Central Committee (MCC), a worldwide ministry of Anabaptist churches, shares God’s love and compassion for all in the name of Christ by responding to basic human needs and working for peace and justice. MCC envisions communities worldwide in right relationship with God, one another and creation.
MCC’s priorities in carrying out its purpose are disaster relief, sustainable community development and justice and peace-building.

MCC values peace and justice. MCC seeks to live and serve nonviolently in response to the biblical call to peace and justice.
