The congregations are small: Oldenburg with 110 members, Gottingen with 125 members, Hannover with 115 members. They meet in facilities rented from other denominations. Not all ministers have received theological training. The congregations are members of the Vereinigung der Deutschen Mennonitengemeinden (Union of the German Mennonite Congregations) and work together with them in relief and the International Mennonite Organization. A youth worker, whose activities extend beyond the boundaries of the congregation, was being supported. New congregations were organized as immigrants arrive from Russia, for example, Wolfsburg with 50 members and Hannover with 38 members in 1987.
