Initiatives

As of 2014, the Institute for the Study of Global Anabaptism manages four initiatives designed to connect global church members to each other and to relevant scholarship.

  • The Bearing Witness Stories Project is a collaborative, web-based effort to gather stories of faithful witness to Christ in the face of persecution and suffering. The project, which counts on participation from at least five different Anabaptist traditions, may be thought of as a “Martyrs Mirror for the 21st Century.” Visit the Bearing Witness Stories Project website to learn more about the project and to read excerpts from the current collection.
  • The Global Anabaptist Wiki is a user-generated global archives where church members can post information about their group in the language of choice with space for photos, articles, curriculum, and other resources.
  • Texts in Translation is an effort to translate selected historical and theological writings by Mennonites outside of Europe and North America into English, in recognition of the careful, creative reflection on matters of faith and identity that is happening around the world.
