Zendingsraad, Doopsgezinde (Mennonite Missionary Council). Until 1957 the Dutch Mennonite Mission Association acted apart from the Algemeene Doopsgezinde Sociëteit (ADS), missions being a concern only of missionary friends. But the annual meeting of the ADS on 25 June 1957 resolved to take over the work administered by the Zendingsraad. This means that the foreign missions of the Dutch Mennonites were now the affair of the entire brotherhood.
