For pastors and leaders

Pastors and leaders

Welcome to Anabaptist Mennonite Biblical Seminary. Explore what AMBS has for you with this guide to our workshops, seminars, webinars and publications. These resources are designed especially for people in ministry, so AMBS can be your source for life-long learning and nurture.

If you already have a ministry degree, here is where you can meet other pastors and continue to learn from professors. If you have been called to ministry without specific preparation, AMBS offers ministry training at different levels. If you are looking for resources for others in your congregation or organization, we have that, too. We encourage you to make use of all AMBS offers and to invite others to do the same.

The Circle Blog

The CircleThe latest post on Church Leadership Center blog, The Circle, comes from forthcoming Leadership Clinic presenter Meghan Good. In "The Word Word Red" she writes, "The Bible is a messy book full of screwed up people who are stumbling their way toward a glorious and mystifying God. Yet for centuries the church has made a living of smoothing and sanitizing Scripture."

Anabaptist short courses

Anabaptist short courses provide a way for new Anabaptists and people seeking to deepen their ministry in the way of Jesus to engage Anabaptist history, thought and witness. Courses are offered online and last six weeks each. Readings and discussion are comparable to seminary-level work, assuming critical thinking skills and some previous academic study. No credit will be awarded.
