Give to AMBS
A message from the director of development
Giving is a two-way street. When you invest in ministry training for students at Anabaptist Mennonite Biblical Seminary, you support spiritually mature, well-educated leaders. When you give to AMBS, you receive the benefit of myriad resources in biblical studies, Anabaptist theology and Christian formation—from faculty publications and presentations, workshops and webinars, and the library. When you support AMBS financially, you receive the deep gratitude of students, faculty and staff.
People ask me if I like my job, and I always say, “Of course!” What could be better than learning to know the people who believe in the mission, students and faculty of AMBS? What could be as fulfilling as connecting these friends with tangible ways to express their values financially? Thank you for walking this two-way street with all of us in the development office. We are here to serve you. — Missy Kauffman Schrock

From our donors
"AMBS has always been an important place for us—not only because that is where our lives were joined, but because we valued greatly our experience of learning and growing in ministry. We continue to believe in the mission of the seminary in preparing men and women for ministry in North America and beyond." — Doug and Wanda Roth Amstutz, Kitchener, Ont.
