Anabaptist Witness Journal

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.

Anabaptist Witness is a publication of Anabaptist Mennonite Biblical Seminary, Mennonite Church Canada, and Mennonite Mission Network.


All journal content is freely available online on the Anabaptist Witness website. Readers who prefer to receive regular copies of the print edition may sign up for a subscription. Please email Jamie Pitts for more information.
