Global Relationships

LMC maintains dynamic church-with-church relationships with growing, thriving churches in Africa, Asia, Europe, South and Central America, and in the Caribbean. These relationships are tended in two ways. First, Mennonite World Conference (MWC) received LMC as a full member in 2018. Second, LMC, in partnership with EMM, is setting in place a system of Global Delegates to foster and grow these connections. Tom Eshleman ( is the LMC Global Delegate coordinator

LMC International Partner Delegate
Resourcing Day

April 17, 2020

 Thanks to each of you for your engagement on behalf of LMC in our global church relationships around the world!    We are so thankful for the privilege of stewarding these relationships for the glory of God and the encouragement of Christ’s church!


I am writing to confirm and provide a few more details for our International Partner Delegate resourcing day on  Friday, April 17, 2020.   We have now reserved the Hurst House Bed and Breakfast meeting facility for our gathering.  The Hurst House is located at 154 E. Farmersville Road, Ephrata PA 17522 and provides a space that will work very well for us as we resource and encourage one another.
We will plan to gather at 8:30 with light breakfast foods (pastries, fruit, and coffee) and conclude in the evening with supper together.  We will plan to dismiss by 7:30 p.m.
Thanks to each of you for making space in your schedules for this important day of resourcing and encouraging one another.  
Blessings in Christ,
Tom Eshleman

LMC Traveled to Ethiopia

A group from LMC traveled to Ethiopia for a 10 day trip in August 2019 to the Meserete Kristos College.

The travel group consists of LMC Bishops – Alvin Motley, Glenn Kauffman, Keith Weaver, Jim Sutton, Rodney Martin, and LMC Global Delegate, Pastor Tom Eshleman. 
The purpose of the trip is to represent the spiritual fathers Holy Spirit used to birth MKC and to establish a relationship in our generation that honors that legacy. To learn from MKC leaders what God will impart to the group for us to carry home to the USA and impart into LMC.
