Learning community

Whether a student is focused on biblical studies. theological studies, peace studies or ministry training, AMBS integrates academic challenges with spiritual nurture.

The learning community of Anabaptist Mennonite Biblical Seminary is home each year to nearly 200 people who worship and study together. Students find mentors among their professors, each of whom holds or pursues a doctoral degree. These faculty members travel around North America and the globe, learning from and with other faith communities and bring these experiences into classroom discussions.

The AMBS library holds one of the largest collections of Mennonite and Anabaptist-related materials for ministry in the world. In addition, access to electronic resources and from library networks make possible a rich array of learning and discovery.

AMBS’s Institute of Mennonite Studies, Mission Studies Center and Church Leadership Center add opportunities to learn from and with a wider spectrum of people and resources.

Our 44-acre campus encourages us to practice creation care. Indoor areas for recreation include the ping-pong and Foosball tables in the Waltner Hall lounge while soccer and Ultimate Frisbee fields provide spaces for outdoor activities. Nearby are opportunities for learning and ministry in a variety of urban, suburban and rural settings.

Each student, in drawing on faculty, peers, study resources, avenues for spiritual growth and the surrounding area, will find this learning community a place to both discover and witness to God’s reconciling mission in the world.
