Conferences at AMBS

The AMBS learning community hosts regular and occassional conferences during the academic year. These events draw on the scholarly and spiritual resources among our faculty, students and staff, while bringing together voices from across the Anabaptist tradition and the church more broadly. These are opportunities for conversation and collaboration that expand our knowledge of our disciplines, and deepen our commitment to and witness for God's reconciling mission in the world.

Rooted and Grounded: A Conference on Land and Christian Discipleship

September 27-29, 2018

As God’s people, the church is called to imagine and embody alternative ways of relating to the land that cultivate shalom between human beings, the rest of creation, and God. This three day event will weave together worship, theology, bliblical study and praxis. Co-sponsors include The Center for Sustainable Climate Solutions and Merry Lea Environmental Learning Center of Goshen College.

Keynote speakers: Valerie Bridgeman, Associate Professor of Homiletics and Hebrew Bible at Methodist Theological School in Ohio; Karenna Gore,  founder of the Center for Earth Ethics at Yale Divinity School. Find out more
