The Anabaptist Mennonite Biblical Seminary is sending one of their seminary students, Henok Mekonin, to preach at our church. Henok is from Nazreth, Oromiya, Ethiopia, and is a Master of Arts: Theology and Peace Studies student at Anabaptist Mennonite Biblical Seminary in Elkhart. He earned a Bachelor of Arts from Meserete Kristos College in Bishoftu, Ethiopia, in 2016 and is currently serving as Ethiopia Assistant for AMBS’s MA: Theology and Global Anabaptism program. He is interested in exploring a ministry of administration and leadership. We look forward to having him, his wife, Misgana Eshete (who is also an MA: Theology and Peace Studies student at AMBS), and their daughter join us on Sunday, and to hearing what God has to say to us through Henok.
Our Mission: Shalom Mennonite Church is a diverse faith community, rooted in the Anabaptist Christian tradition, being transformed by God’s grace. Empowered by the Holy Spirit, we follow Jesus together as we worship God, grow as disciples, support one another, and share God’s love, justice, and peace with those around us and the world.
