Who is Region 3?

The EMMC heart was birthed in Manitoba South. The Region hosts six EMMC churches. Individually and corporately, the churches are involved in a variety of ministries reaching within their communities and beyond. From prison ministry, to supporting workers involved with ministries in inner city Winnipeg, sponsoring international Bible college students, sending ministry teams to various places and much more, this Region is excited about sharing God’s love in creative and meaningful ways.

The individuals below are the General Council representatives for Region 3.

Obituary – Jerry Hildebrand, former EMMC Director of Missions

Gerhard “Jerry” Hildebrand, 87, of Winkler, Manitoba died on July 12, 2016 at Boundary Trails Health Centre. He suffered a stroke on Friday, July 9 and was immediately taken to the hospital. Deep appreciation goes to the doctors, nurses and staff at Boundary Trails Health Centre for their professional and compassionate care.

He was ordained as an Evangelical Mennonite Missions Conference (EMMC) minister on June 26, 195.  Jerry served as the Missions director for the EMMC from 1976 until 1985.

Jerry and Marjorie served as volunteers with Mennonite Central Committee in Aylmer, Ontario working with Low German Mennonites from Mexico. They returned to Winkler where Jerry served as associate pastor at the EMMC church. After his retirement in 2003 he continued to teach Bible classes and studies, worked with the Evangelical Anabaptist Fellowship and with Marjorie at the Winkler Heritage Society

The funeral will be at the Winkler EMMC Church 600 Southview Drive at 2:00 p.m. on Friday July 15, 2016 with a reception to follow. In lieu of flowers, if you so desire, donations may be made in Jerry’s memory to Evangelical Anabaptist Fellowship in person after the service.
