Upcoming webinar - Anti-Patriarchy: Navigating the Church

Thurs., Oct. 22 @ 7 p.m. ET / 6 p.m. CT / 5 p.m. MT / 4 p.m. PT

Host: Melissa Florer-Bixler, member of the WiL steering committee and pastor of Raleigh (North Carolina) Mennonite Church.

Presenter: Iris de León-Hartshorn, MC USA associate executive director for Operations and a respected elder in the Mennonite church.

Register here.


De León-Hartshorn will share about her decades in church leadership, how she navigated patriarchal spaces and her hopes for the future of the church.

“Patriarchy, like racism, is something that is taught,” said de León-Hartshorn, “so it is not about individuals, but a system that upholds men and dehumanizes women.”

This webinar is part of the “What We Need Is Here” webinar series, organized by Women in Leadership (WiL), a ministry of Mennonite Church USA (MC USA).



Book: Peaceful at Heart

After 5 years of development Mennonite Men is pleased to provide this important resource to the dialogue on healthy masculinity.  This is a book by men writing to men. It promotes an Anabaptist Christian perspective on masculinity that is more peaceful, just, caring, and life-giving for men and sensitive to women and children than many dominant images of masculinity and the hyper-masculine images promoted by contemporary popular culture and wider evangelical Christianity.

While much has been written describing the characteristics of masculinity and the impacts of patriarchy, this volume moves the dialogue in the direction of building a vision of discipleship, community and peace as an alternative for men's lives. Rather than supporting patriarchy and nationalism commonly advanced in traditional Christian thought, this volume draws on an Anabaptist perspective of faith which invites men to experience God's call to live at peace and be peacemakers.
