We know you've got questions.

What does it mean to read the Bible like an Anabaptist? Why does Anabaptist history matter at all today? And what even is "shalom"?

Anabaptist Short Courses wrestle with these questions and more! Join one of these discussion-based online courses to deepen your understanding of Anabaptist history, thought and witness. Followers of Jesus today will discover each other and the early Anabaptists as kindred spirits through their study of theology and history. In these courses, you'll explore Anabaptist resources as a source of inspiration and guidance for your own life and ministry.

Courses are offered online and last six weeks each. And there are no grades and no papers!
