The Krimmer Mennonite Brethren Publications Committee was created at the 36th annual conference session, which met in 1915, to meet the need of printing a conference periodical and to supervise conference publications. The Committee was composed of six members elected by the delegates at the annual conference session for a term of three years. The editor of the Conference periodical was usually called in in an advisory capacity for the Publications Committee meetings. The mid-1950s budget of the Committee was $4,200.

After its establishment the Committee functioned in publishing the Conference Yearbooks, Articles of Faith, the Constitution, a resume of Conference recommendations and decisions under the title Konferenzbeschlusse, and the Conference periodicals, Wahrheitsfreund 1915-1947 and Christian Witness 1941-1960.

When the Krimmer Mennonite Brethren merged with the Mennonite Brethren Church in 1960, the Committee ceased its work.
