AMBS reports growth in student numbers

October 27, 2022

Anabaptist Mennonite Biblical Seminary (AMBS) in Elkhart, Ind., is reporting a growth in student numbers this fall, with total enrolment increasing from 145 students in 2021 to 157 this year. Of these 157 students, 16 are participants in the undergraduate level nondegree Journey Missional Leadership Development Program. The other 141 students constitute the largest graduate student body AMBS has enrolled in 12 years. Scott Janzen, AMBS’s assistant dean, registrar and director of retention, says students from outside the United States and Canada are driving AMBS’s enrolment growth. The number of international students attending the seminary increased from 54 students in 2021, to a record-breaking 74 in 2022, now accounting for 54 percent of the student body. “These are exciting times,” Janzen says. “Enrolment continues to climb as a result of our efforts to engage Anabaptists and other Christian groups globally in theological education. AMBS is being sought out as a reliable resource for educating leaders in places all around the world.”
