The Mennonite Church in Vietnam is estimated to have 10,000 members, most of whom are in the southern part of the country. Since the Mennonite Church was officially recognized by the government in 2007, the church has continued to grow.  Some Mennonite churches, however, still are not officially registered.

Vietnamese Mennonite congregations emerged in both Canada and the US, and in 1991, the North American Vietnamese Mennonite Fellowship (now NAVEF) was formed for the purposes of having fellowship with Mennonite brothers and sisters in North America and to plant churches in Vietnam. In 1997, NAVEF began church planting in Vietnam and today there are over 160 Mennonite churches in the country.

Mennonite Church Canada works in partnership with the North American Vietnamese Evangelical Fellowship (NAVEF) to support a Bible school and training seminars for pastors and church leaders in the areas of church history, theology, and Biblical study.  NAVEF also provides financial support and counsel for the church to develop effective and sustainable structures that will serve the growing Mennonite Church in Vietnam.
