Ministry is not meant to be done alone. The Leadership Pipeline is overseen by USMB (United States Mennonite Brethren of Churches) and USMB Youth. The Leadership Pipeline’s recruitment arm is led by our mobilizers. They are here to help you in any way they can.

What is USMB?

The U.S. Conference of Mennonite Brethren Churches is a family of about 200 diverse congregations that is committed to church multiplication and evangelism, intentional disciple-making and leadership development.  Our desire is that each local church will reach its full, God-given ministry potential within the framework of our evangelical and Anabaptist distinctives. We want to develop a community of churches that connect and network with one another, sharing resources and ideas and gathering for fellowship and learning.

What is USMB Youth?

USMB Youth is the National Youth Leadership of the U.S. Mennonite Brethren Conference (USMB). The primary function of USMB Youth is to support youth workers and their ministries as they disciple students in the context of the local church. The commission is formed of people who have a passion for youth in a wide range of locations and positions. We focus on three main areas: the youth worker (The Network), the youth (events like our national summer camp ASCENT) and the church (with the Leadership Pipeline).
