Rooted in the Word, Growing in Christ
AMBS is steeped in a centuries-old Anabaptist peace tradition.
We empower students for creative, transformative and holistic Christian leadership.
Join our global learning community and:
- Explore biblical, theological and ethical aspects of peace and justice with an Anabaptist lens.
- Study with experienced faculty mentors who are reflective practitioners and scholars.
- Enhance your gifts for work in church, service, academic and nongovernmental settings — wherever God may call you!
- Grow in a place that also values creation care, spiritual growth, intercultural competence and undoing racism as core to Christian witness and the church's ministry of reconciliation.
