Tyndale and the Mennonite Brethren Biblical Seminary Sign Agreement

Friday, January 26, 2018

Tyndale and MBBS logos side by sideTyndale Seminary is pleased to announce a new agreement with the Mennonite Brethren Biblical Seminary to offer a graduate program in Evangelical Anabaptist Studies. The Memorandum of Understanding, signed by President Gary Nelson of Tyndale and President Mark Wessner of MB Seminary, is grounded in a shared vision of educating faithful and effective leaders for the church in Canada and internationally. “This exciting joint venture with MB Seminary will strengthen and enrich the education and formation of a new generation of evangelical Anabaptist leaders for the 21st century church,” says Dr. Gary Nelson.

Both schools will collaborate in designing and delivering a Graduate Diploma in Christian Studies with a concentration in Evangelical Anabaptist Studies. For degree-seeking students, the credits from the Graduate Diploma may be transferred to a Master of Theological Studies (MTS) degree or a Master of Divinity (MDiv) degree with this concentration.

For students within the Ontario Conference of Mennonite Brethren Churches (OCMBC) and others in the evangelical Anabaptist tradition, this is a unique opportunity to focus on Anabaptist history, theology and practice within the broader scope of Tyndale’s multidenominational context. Students will be able to take courses with Tyndale professors as well as faculty from MB Seminary and visiting Anabaptist scholars.

The specialized courses in the evangelical Anabaptist concentration are open to occasional students, auditors and those registered in the program.  The program launches this summer with the Church Renewal and Music in the 21st Century, a course taught by Christine Longhurst of CMU, June 18-22.

Seminary Summer School registration is now open. Course details can be viewed by following the link www.tyndale.ca/seminary/summer.
