SALT LAKE CITY — MB Foundation sponsored a tour of Mormon and Mennonite sites July 26 in conjunction with the U.S. Conference of Mennonite Brethren Churches national convention.

The tour provided 88 participants with a better understanding of Mormon culture, the ministries of MB-affiliated South Mountain Community Church and the work of God through the Mennonite Brethren in Utah.

“We wanted to provide an opportunity for people to understand Mormonism and celebrate the amazing work God is doing in Utah through our MB family,” said MB Foundation President and CEO Jon C. Wiebe.

The tour’s first stop was Temple Square, where participants learned about Mormon history and the influence of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints on the people of Utah.

Next, the tour stopped at the South Mountain main campus in Draper. Church staff offered a tour of the campus, giving a glimpse into the impact of SMCC ministries. Participants went on to visit the newly opened SMCC South Jordan campus.

MB Foundation has more than $10.5 million loaned to SMCC to fund the buildings necessary to grow the ministry. Many tour participants were amazed at the extent of SMCC’s ministry and grateful for the involvement of MB Foundation in providing capital to support the ministry.

“We were very encouraged by the tour and are thankful to be a part of what God is doing among the Mennonite Breth­ren in Utah and beyond,” Wiebe said.
