Hearts on Fire

Invest in leaders

"Did we not feel our hearts on fire as he talked to us on the road and explained the scriptures to us? — Luke 24:32

Hearts on Fire aims to build financial support for future leaders and for the seminary. Our goal is to ensure annual sustainability and strengthen student financial aid and scholarships to help students have access to quality seminary education.

We are seeking contributions that will help to keep the church vibrant and strong and make an impact on the church for the next generation. Participate in Hearts on Fire Day or contact the development team to find out how you can support our goals

Luke 24:32 is taken from the New English Bible, Oxford University Press

“Bright thanks to all of you who choose to join us as we heed Jesus’ command to ‛let your light shine before others.’” —   Sara Wenger Shenk, AMBS president


“AMBS has always been an important place for us . . . We continue to believe in the mission of the seminary.” — Doug and Wanda Roth Amstutz, Kitchener, Ont.

Your support makes a difference

A word from the Interim Director of Development

God invites us to give from our abundance. As theologian Henri Nouwen shared, “The more we touch the intimate love of God which creates, sustains and guides us, the more we recognize the multitude of fruits that come forth from that love.”

May we all be filled with God’s love and be inspired to invest in the fruitful development of future leaders of God’s mission.
