MC Canada Executive Director to complete term after 8 years of service

After careful consideration and prayer the Joint Council discerned with Willard Metzger, Executive Director, that this was the time to seek new leadership for Mennonite Church Canada. The announcement came on May 7 following the Joint Council meetings in Ontario on May 5 and 6. The Joint Council has appointed a Search Committee, chaired by Geraldine Balzer, to determine leadership needs and to find Metzger’s successor.
Since the beginning of his tenure in November 2010, Willard has continued to express a deep commitment to Christ and a love for the church”, says Calvin Quan, moderator of MC Canada. “We have been blessed by Willard’s leadership which many have described as being approachable, pastoral, and articulate. He has a gift for connecting the diversity of cultures and generations reflected in our congregations across the country. This has served us well in light of the major shifts experienced by the broader church and society over the recent years.”

Metzger will continue with MC Canada until Oct 31, 2018. “My time with MC Canada has marked me, and I am a better leader and stronger person because of it. I thank God for this gift,” stated Metzger.
