Anabaptist Communicators Conference 2014: Are Anabaptists ready to go big?

October 24 and 25, 2014 at Mennonite Central Committee's Welcoming Place

What is “the good news” that Anabaptism brings to a weary world today? What hope do Anabaptists bring to a world full of fear, dislocation, conflict, climate change and economic inequity? What are our roles and mission as Anabaptist communicators?

What is the “unique selling proposition” of Anabaptism, and are we ready to promote that message? Who needs to hear and experience it?

These questions and more will be explored from a communicator’s perspective through storytelling, learning and interaction.
