Anabaptist Witness is a global Anabaptist and Mennonite dialogue on key issues facing the church in mission.

Issues of Anabaptist Witness are published in print and online each April and October, with additional content available online throughout the year. We invite written and visual contributions from Anabaptists, Mennonites, and other interested persons from around the world.
