Celebrating contributions to scholarship during 2017–18

Each year, the Institute of Mennonite Studies (IMS) and the AMBS learning community as a whole — teaching faculty, administrators, staff and students — engage in scholarly work that contributes to our disciplines; wrestles with critical biblical, theological, ethical, spiritual and social concerns; and supports the work of church leaders, academics and followers of Jesus Christ within and beyond the church.

At a gathering on May 1, the campus community celebrated these publishing efforts from the current academic year and asked God to bless them so they can be part of God's reconciling mission in the world.
