After 19 years as executive director of Mennonite Mission Network, Stanley W. Green announced his retirement effective the end of July 2020. The Mission Network board of directors has formed a six-member search committee for Green’s successor.

The search committee is gathering information about what constituents desire as qualifications for the next Mission Network executive director. A questionnaire is available here and draft job description is available here. The questionnaire will be open until Sept. 13. After reviewing all feedback, the search committee will prepare a final job description and invite applications at that time.

Names of persons the search committee might invite to consider the role, along with their basic contact and context information, may be sent to the search committee at

In addition to providing feedback and names, the search committee requests your ongoing prayer to guide this discernment process.

The committee is being led by Lee Schmucker, president of Schmucker Training and Consulting. Other members of the committee are Madeline Maldonado, Mission Network board chair from Goshen, Indiana; Linda Dibble, Mennonite Church USA Executive Board member and MC USA moderator-elect from Albany, Oregon; Cindy Cumberbatch, Mission Network board member from Tampa, Florida; Andrew Bodden, Mission Network board member from Lancaster, Pennsylvania; and Steve Breidigan, Mission Network board member from Douglasville, Pennsylvania. Glen Guyton, executive director of MC USA, is an ex-officio member of the search committee.
