Kathy Giesbrecht

Presently, Kathy serves as the Associate Director of Leadership Ministries for Mennonite Church Manitoba, but before that she gave herself to youth ministry for over 3 decades. Serving in high schools, youth institutions, drop-ins, community centers, and congregations... she loved it all. Claiming to have consumed more pizza than anyone on the planet, the perks and thrills of her calling continue to fuel her passion.

"I just can't stop talking about how committed God is to us and how life giving the ways of Jesus are and what a super duper companion the Holy Spirit is."

Lloyd Letkeman

Lloyd, together with his wife Carol & their team at MB Mission, provide a wide variety of discipleship on mission opportunities for church groups of all ages. Discipleship is life-on-life experiences of living, eating, and serving together with a purpose – unto "God's kingdom come on earth as it is in heaven." ​Lloyd is a teacher at heart who loves to invite others to experience the abundant life Jesus freely gives to all who seek him. Lloyd serves as a Regional Mobilizer for MB Mission in Manitoba, Saskatchewan, and Alberta.
