James R. Krabill, Mission Network's senior executive for Global Ministries, outlined the history of Mennonite Church Nigeria in three 18-year periods - a long birthing process (1954-1976), a time of internal leadership struggle (1977-1995), and a reconciliation process of binding wounds and healing (1996-2013). Now in 2014, we are seeing the beginning of the fourth chapter, Krabill said, the blossoming and growth of Mennonite Church Nigeria.

James R. Krabill
Krabill began his mission experience in 1976. James and his wife, Jeanette, spent nearly 14 years living and teaching in Ivory Coast, including several years living in a small village among the Dida people. The Krabills have also lived in Paris and in Birmingham, England.
Drawing on these experiences, Krabill offers his insights on how the North American church can learn from the church around the world. Through the message of the gospel, he shares the interwoven callings of the church to evangelism and peace. Krabill, a Staley lecturer, speaks in a variety of settings, including churches, conferences, seminars, schools and youth conventions. He was a keynote speaker at a 1997 Mennonite youth convention in Orlando, Fla., featuring 5,500 people from the United States and Canada.
In Ivory Coast, Krabill taught Bible classes and church history to French-speaking church leaders, and guided mission efforts in six countries as an administrator for West Africa from 1992 to 1996, with the former Mennonite Board of Missions. The Krabills also organized and coordinated international study programs in West Africa for students from Goshen (Ind.) College and Eastern Mennonite University in Harrisonburg, Va.
Krabill became vice president of Mission Advocacy and Communication in 1995 for the former Mennonite Board of Missions, which was one of several mission agencies that joined to form the Mennonite Mission Network. As one of three senior executives with the new agency, Krabill oversees its international and U.S. ministries, short-term mission and service programs, and human resources functions as they relate to these departments.
The author and editor of several books, Krabill has also edited a series of 24 Mission Insight booklets (1999-2002) and more recently, the Missio Dei series, which includes one of his better-known writings, Does Your Church "Smell" Like Mission?
In addition, Krabill has taught courses at Goshen College, Eastern Mennonite University and Associated Mennonite Biblical Seminary.
Krabill is a member of Prairie Street Mennonite Church in Elkhart, Ind.
