On January 21, 1525, a small group of Christians secretly gathered in Zurich for a worship service. There they renounced their baptism as infants and experienced voluntary baptism as adults, now in the full understanding that this decision implied a transformation of life in the way of Jesus. For many, this decision led to imprisonment, torture, and even death. But this gathering also marked the beginning of the Anabaptist movement that continues today in the form of the Amish, Hutterites, Mennonites, Church of the Brethren, and many other related groups. 

THE FIVE HUNDREDTH ANNIVERSARY OF ANABAPTISM IN 2025 GIVES THE CHURCH A UNIQUE OPPORTUNITY TO CELEBRATE AND DREAM.

To celebrate the Spirit’s calling together of diverse people across all boundaries of culture and geography. To dream about how more people can be invited into and participate in leading and shaping Anabaptism’s future. To celebrate how young people have made faith their own for centuries, and to dream how young people today can become even more deeply engaged and empowered to help lead the Anabaptist movement into the future. To celebrate all the ways God has been faithful, and to dream about how we can mend what’s been broken.

MennoMedia invites you to celebrate and dream with us as we embrace the hope and possibility created by this momentous anniversary. As our world continues to evolve and change, the church needs to increase our capacity to offer creative, imaginative resources that inspire people to commit to and grow in Christian faith. MennoMedia’s vision is to lead the way in helping North American Anabaptist Christians experience spiritual renewal by creating fresh, forward-looking resources for Anabaptism’s quincentenary celebration. Each resource will offer spiritual inspiration, connection, education, and invitation to the Anabaptist community and to the broader Christian church.

WE INVITE YOU TO PARTNER WITH US AT MENNOMEDIA
