  • Phnom Penh Mennonite Church - Anabaptistwiki
    leaders attend Bible schools sponsored by these churches The sporadic and limited theological formation from Mennonites came primarily from Chris and Dawn Landes and Paul and Tina Holderman As such PPMC s theology does not really resemble something that is recognizable as distinctly Anabaptist or Mennonite from the perspective of a North American Mennonite observer Nonetheless several PPMC leaders see a lot of value in being connected to Mennonites around the world When asked what they know about Mennonite theology and whether or not they were attracted to it several PPMC leaders noted that the Mennonite Church is just one of many denominations When asked to articulate what it meant to be Mennonite several of them mentioned Menosymon Menno Simons and the revolution that he started against the Catholics However they didn t personally identify spiritually with the name Some of them said that they were attracted to Mennonite people and their theology although Pastor Dady said that he was not When asked whether there was anything that separated Mennonites from other Christian denominations all the PPMC members interviewed noted that they held the same beliefs as other Christians Most of them did however note that Mennonites do not believe in war and will not join the army Still it was unclear whether or not they shared pacifist beliefs although several of the leaders seemed to agree with the Mennonite peace position As of 2008 PPMC leaders had yet to formally articulate an official statement on nonresistance and the Christian relationship to the state Other than these leaders however congregation members appear quite unfamiliar with the peace position When asked how PPMC demonstrated Mennonite theology their answers were diverse and generalized When describing how PPMC demonstrated Mennonite theology Pastor Dady summarized several broadly accepted evangelical Christian doctrines noting especially the Trinity God the father Son and Spirit He went on to state that as Mennonites PPMC members believed they were sinner s and need ed to be save d from God and that GOD gave them eternal life from Jesus by their faith in him PPMC member Yann Sokhom identified the lack of Mennonite distinctiveness bluntly saying Actually PPMC doesn t focus on Mennonite or other denominations Likewise Hem Sopheary said that PPMC hadn t placed much of an emphasis on being Mennonite because the church wanted to first focus on being a Christian Referencing new Christians Sopheary said We don t want to confuse them Nevertheless she thought it important to teach committed members and leaders about Mennonite history and theology Yet despite a cursory understanding of Mennonite theology this small young Church has had a surprising amount of interaction with the global Mennonite Church Several leaders expressed a desire to learn more about Mennonite theology and to be more connected to the global Mennonite Church Four PPMC members Sopheary Mades Sopheak and Sokhom spent a year in North American Mennonite communities with MCC IVEP When Sopheary returned from her year abroad she hoped to connect PPMC with other Mennonites Up until that point PPMC was called the Church of Peace in Christ Government regulations required that he church needed to identify itself with a denomination if it wanted government recognition Sopheary encouraged the church to take the Mennonite name so the Church of Peace in Christ officially became the Phnom Penh Mennonite Church Sopheary and the other IVEPers are the individuals most interested in developing a Mennonite identity Several of them have also visited Mennonite Churches in Indonesia and Thailand to discern what it means to be Mennonite During his term Paul Holderman worked with the church to formulate their vision and mission As part of this process he helped them write a constitution and taught a class on Mennonite history and theology They studied the Confession of Faith in a Mennonite Perspective and Holderman hired Sopheak to translate the confession into Khmer so that everyone in the church could read it Holderman said that the Khmer leaders agreed with what they read in the confession although they tended to focus more on the general Christian beliefs rather than on distinctly Mennonite emphases One concept the Khmer struggled to grasp was the priesthood of believers This style of ecclesiology went against the grain of the emphasis on hierarchy and patronage in Khmer culture While PPMC leaders valued being connected with the global Mennonite Church they were not necessarily attracted to Mennonites specifically Rather they simply desired global connections and it was easiest to identify with Mennonites since they were a Mennonite church plant Participation in the broader Mennonite Church is a way of connecting to a larger movement Without a global Mennonite connection PPMC would be a small isolated church forced to survive on its own More than a specific Mennonite identity however PPMC wants mutually supportive connections Pastor Dady said he wanted PPMC to connect to global Mennonites because we want to encourage each other In 2007 several North American young adult Mennonites biked through South East Asia visiting Mennonite Churches there Their first stop was PPMC These North American Mennonites did not immediately recognize anything at PPMC as distinctly Mennonite Like many North American Mennonite young adults these individuals came with reservations about missions and evangelicalism What they found at PPMC was exactly that a mission church with a evangelical approach to faith Bike Movement listened to pastor Dady and other PPMC members give testimony after testimony of how God had saved them from sin and distress They told stories of being freed from the bonds of evil spirits of healings and finding a place to belong at the student dorms Their worship was lively energetic and spirit filled Bike Movement member Adele Liechty reflected on the dissonance between her Mennonite identity and that of the members of PPMC I wish that I could have listened to the stories of the people of Phnom Penh Mennonite Church with an open mind and heart but I soon realized that I was much too jaded For them Christianity
