About

Double the impact of your gift to AMBS today!

During our Season of Giving campaign — now through Tuesday, Nov. 29 — your gift to invest in leaders at AMBS will be doubled, thanks to the commitment of a generous donor who is matching gifts up to $50,000!

For more than 60 years, AMBS has served the church and world in many ways and many places. Your gift to benefit our Leadership Education Fund (our annual fund) empowers our support of dedicated faculty members, a vibrant Anabaptist learning community, and everything we do to make theological education accessible for students across the church. Thank you!

Make a gift!

Click the big “Give Now!” button to give in U.S. dollars. Your donation during our two-week Season of Giving campaign helps us reach our goal to raise $100,000 and supports AMBS’s work of equipping leaders. 

If you’d like to give in Canadian dollars, click here to donate in Canadian dollars.

If you prefer to donate by check, please make it payable to “AMBS” and mail it to 3003 Benham Ave., Elkhart, IN 46517. When you send your check, please email us at development@ambs.edu so we can count your gift as part of this campaign.

4 Days Left of Season of Giving!

First, thank you for your support!

We appreciate you as you help make AMBS theological education accessible to students in Canada, the United States, and around the world. Below are some of our new students this school year.

Second, you can STILL support this campaign!

1. Spread the word by sharing the campaign link via social media, email, text, etc.

2. Create a "personal plea video" describing how AMBS has impacted your life, what AMBS means to you, etc. Log in to your Advocate account to get started. Keep it under 60 seconds. Scan the "Advocates" tab for a couple of videos already posted.

Finally, we are closing in on our goal(s)!

We are about half way toward our original $100,000 goal with the match by a generous donor, BUT reaching a STRETCH goal of $110,000 will unlock another $10,000 from another generous donor generating $120,000 toward our Season of Giving campaign.

Wouldn't it be amazing to see how far beyond $120,000 we might go?!?!

Our Teaching Faculty members share their thanks.

We’re so thankful!

Our Teaching Faculty members are a huge reason why AMBS has been a vibrant Anabaptist learning community for more than 60 years.

We gave Malinda, Jackie, Jamie and Rachel the chance to express their thanks in this video. 

Show our Teaching Faculty members your appreciation

Now through Tuesday, Nov. 29, your gift to AMBS will be doubled, thanks to a generous donor who is matching gifts up to $50,000! 

Your gift to benefit our Leadership Education Fund (our annual fund) empowers AMBS to make theological education accessible for students across the church. Thank you!

STRETCH GOAL ANNOUNCEMENT!

A generous donor has challenged us to reach beyond our initial goal of $100,000.

⭐ If we reach their $110,000 challenge goal, it will unlock an additional $10,000! Please join us in reaching this goal.
