Mennonite Church USA is one of about 40 different Mennonite groups in the United States.  While we share a common faith ancestry with these groups, we may vary in the way we dress, worship and relate to the world.

There are 18 area conferences within Mennonite Church USA.  Area conferences allow local congregations to pool their resources giving them the ability to do more together as a community than by themselves.  Area conferences are made up of local congregations.  Across the denomination there are approximately 67,000 adult members participating in those congregations.
