ICOMB is affiliated with Mennonite Brethren mission, historical agencies, publishing, periodicals, and other Anabaptist organizations. Most ICOMB national members are also members of the Mennonite World Conference, our larger global umbrella.
The Mennonite Brethren Church operates four archival centres in North America. Each of them is responsible for keeping records of permanent value created by specific conferences within the denomination. The work of these centres is coordinated through the Historical Commission. The four centres and their areas of responsibility are as follows:
The Mennonite Library and Archives in Fresno, USA, is the official repository/archive of ICOMB activity and documents. It is located in the Hiebert Library at Fresno Pacific University. It is responsible for General Conference records and Pacific District Conference records.
The Center for Mennonite Brethren Studies in Tabor, USA, is a resource center and archives for information about the Mennonite Brethren, Tabor College, and related subject areas. It is responsible for United States Conference records, Southern District Conference records, and Central District Conference records.
The Centre for Mennonite Brethren Studies in Winnipeg, Canada is a ministry of the Canadian Conference of MB Churches, which resources MB churches and their leaders. It is responsible for Canadian Conference records and all Canadian provincial conference records except British Columbia.
The Mennonite Historical Society of British Columbia holds the records for the British Columbia Conference.
Christian Leader is published bimonthly by the U.S. Conference of Mennonite Brethren Churches (USMB), and connects the USMB family, celebrates our Lord Jesus Christ and cultivates discipleship as understood in the evangelical/Anabaptist tradition.
The Mennonite Brethren Herald is published monthly by the Canadian Conference of Mennonite Brethren Churches, primarily for the use of its members, to build a Canadian MB community of faith.
