Chester Weaver was raised in a Lancaster Mennonite Conference church. As he considers the changes that happened within Lancaster Mennonite Conference in the 1960s, he traces the root causes back to ideas, especially the emphases on fundamentalism and liberalism. Chester observes that some of these very same ideas are being found in moderately conservative Mennonites today. He pleads with us to not repeat history but to learn from it.
Chester Weaver has been involved in Christian education for almost all of his adult life, serving as full-time Christian School teacher for 34 years and specializing in history and theology. He also has taught 20 years at short term youth Bible schools. Presently, he and his wife, Barbara, parents of eight children, reside in Itasca, Texas, near two of their sons’ families. One son and two daughters with their families live in California while two more children live in Virginia. One son with his family lives in Ireland.Read More
