The Future of Anabaptism as a Global Movement: Global Anabaptism Conference Lectures

2019, 2:12:15 min

May 21-22, 2019

A conference hosted by Canadian Mennonite University and Providence University College and Seminary.

How did this happen? What does this shift in the centre of gravity mean for churches in Canada? What will the Anabaptist church look like in the future? For almost 500 years, the centre of Anabaptism has been located in Europe and North America. Since the end of the twentieth century that reality has changed dramatically as Anabaptist churches in Latin America, Africa, and Asia have outgrown their European and North American counterparts.

These and other questions were explored in the context of a two-day conference consisting of:

  • Two public lectures
  • A pastors seminar for church leaders and persons involved in related organizations
  • An educators seminar for educators in secondary schools, colleges, and university settings
