Anabaptism at 500 Moving Forward

MennoMedia seeking members of advisory group

HARRISONBURG, Virginia – As the Anabaptist movement approaches its 500th anniversary in 2025, MennoMedia is commemorating the event with Anabaptism at 500, a suite of products created to carry forward the movement for future generations. At the heart of the project is an Anabaptist Study Bible; but the initiative also envisions a year- long devotional, a photo book, children’s literature, and a curriculum material. MennoMedia is seeking nine volunteers to serve on an Advisory Group to provide guidance for this once-in-a-lifetime project.

The Advisory Group volunteers will serve for three years as a sounding board for the project director, managing editor, and other MennoMedia staff. The nine volunteers will receive a yearly honorarium ranging from $500 to $1,000 USD in recognition of the time and work given to the project.

“We are eager to pull together a diverse group of folks to serve as advisors for this unique project,” said project director John D. Roth. “We’re looking for people who care about the Anabaptist tradition, are connected with congregational life, and are committed to the future of the church.”

MennoMedia is accepting applications for the Advisory Group until February 28, 2022. The application form can be found here. The full job description can be found here.

MennoMedia is the publishing agency for Mennonite Church USA and Mennonite Church Canada. MennoMedia seeks to engage and shape church and society with resources for living Christian faith from an Anabaptist perspective.
