“Today I want to talk to you a little bit about discipleship. It sounds like such a mundane topic, in the sense that we all talk about discipleship. And yet, at the very heart, at the very core of who we are as Christ followers, we are disciples; we are followers of Jesus. When we unpack that and everything that it means, signifies and implies for our lives, it’s incredibly significant.”

MBBS Canada and The Journey extend MB seminary studies in Canada

MBBS Canada represents a new model for MB graduate theological education in Canada, one which is more accessible to pastors and leaders across the country. MBBS Canada is pleased to announce that it has recently become a partner in The Journey, an Edmonton-based seminary affiliated with the ACTS consortium (Langley, B.C.); it is therefore well situated to bring seminary education closer to Mennonite Brethren pastors and leaders in Alberta and Saskatchewan. Entry as a partner in The Journey came about, in part, through the encouragement and financial support of the Alberta and Saskatchewan MB conferences. It represents a creative and strategic way to extend our vision of offering MB theological education in more accessible and practical ways.

Dr. Randy Wollf of MBBS Canada is on the teaching roster for the coming semester at The Journey. With a PhD in educational studies, including a doctoral dissertation on how power intersects with change processes in the church, he will be in his area of specialty, teaching the leadership course Power, Change & Conflict.

Interested people also have access to other ACTS faculty through The Journey, and it’s a great and cost-effective way to do professional development and upgrade your education.
