MennoCon19 is a biennial gathering of thousands from Mennonite Church USA. It is truly a faith formation event where people come together to worship, learn, discern and fellowship.
MennoCon19 will have something for everyone from infants to retirees. Many families make this their biennial summer vacation. Children will experience age-appropriate learning and activities. Junior youth will have sessions designed specifically for them. Youth will be encouraged and challenged in their faith
walk. Adults will do the work of the church and get equipped for carrying out ministry in their local context.
Convention is an excellent chance to immerse youth in a week of faith formation to both enrich and strengthen their faith. Studies show that youth get less faith formation at home than in the past. Many youth point to convention as a cornerstone in their faith development. Over the years, youth have offered feedback that they were challenged or nurtured by something a speaker said during worship or a seminar. Many say that convention brings them to the realization that they are part of a much larger body of believers and learn from each other.
Adults can attend convention in a variety of roles as youth sponsors, delegates, agency representatives or general attendees.
