AMBS and Garrett-Evangelical Partnership


Garrett-Evangelical Theological Seminary is pleased to announce a new partnership with Anabaptist Mennonite Biblical Seminary (AMBS) in Elkhart, Indiana.  In June of 2011, the University Senate of The United Methodist Church endorsed this partnership.  This new initiative is designed to assist students at AMBS in meeting United Methodist ordination requirements through a concentration in United Methodist Studies and to provide students at Garrett-Evangelical the opportunity to obtain a concentration in Peace Studies.

Garrett-Evangelical will be providing regular and multiple opportunities to fulfill requirements for United Methodist ordination through a concentration in United Methodist Studies for Master of Divinity students at AMBS.  In return, AMBS will provide a set of courses for a concentration in Peace Studies.  Some of these courses will be made available online, some by intensive courses in January and the summer, and some during regular semester terms on the campuses in Evanston or Elkhart.  Another component of the partnership is that each school will also provide staff to advise students in fulfilling the expectations for these programs.
