Mennonite Women USA was formed in 2003 out of a long history of women connecting through friendship, fellowship, mission projects and service.
That history began in 1916-1917 with “Women’s Missionary and Service Commission of Mennonite Church” and “Women in Mission of the General Conference”. These two organizations merged into Mennonite Women in 1997, which became Mennonite Women USA in 2003.
Mennonite Women USA (MW USA) is a sisterhood of women following Jesus. Engaging the voices of all women, we honor our stories, practice justice, and embrace healing. MW USA includes any woman who desires to connect with other Anabaptist women through our publications, events, and social media.
There is no membership!
Mennonite women are diverse in age, ethnicity, geography and theology. We meet in Bible study groups, during seminars, mission and service groups, one-on-one in friendships, and at retreats. We are women who juggle work, family, and spiritual growth yet seek to be part of faith circles that fit our needs.

MW USA's sisterhood circles around the Bible, reflects on self care and each other care, and pools our support for women called to spiritual leadership. God moves in our conversations and moves us to places of growth. Every time we come together in person and online we make ever more links so our gifts and networks can bind the world in God's love.
