Our Ministry

Anabaptist Perspectives was formed to address the void of accurate descriptions of conservative Anabaptist life and thought in accessible online media. We our grateful that our digitally native media has found a reception among a wide range of American Anabaptists and by a global audience.

Get Supporters Update For monthly updates on our vision, plans, and impact.

Our weekly podcasts and videos are designed to describe and defend biblical elements of contemporary Anabaptist lifestyle and theology while promoting biblical discussions among Anabaptist people about social and cultural issues. In addition to our audio and video materials, we are building a library of substantial articles on our blog.

The project is under the oversight of Wellspring Mennonite Church of Athens, Tennessee.
