Christlicher Familienfreund (Periodical)
Christlicher Familienfreund, the German-language organ of the Kleine Gemeinde (since 1952 called Evangelical Mennonite Conference), began as a monthly periodical in January 1935. After 12 years, it became a biweekly, but it returned to monthly publication in 1984. Printed by the Christian Press of Winnipeg four years, it was then produced by Derksen Printers, Steinbach, Manitoba. The paper was 6 x 9 in., averaged 16-18 pages, and had a circulation in the 1950s of approximately 1100. As the German language declined in the conference, the Christlicher Familienfreund was discontinued in December 1984.
Its editors were David P. Reimer (1935-1959), Abram R. Reimer (1960-1981), Johnny Loewen (January-June, 1982) and Peter U. Dueck (July 1982-1984).
