The Mennonite, MWR announce name of new journalistic ministry

The name of the new independent, multiplatform journalistic ministry being created by the merger of The Mennonite and Mennonite World Review will be Anabaptist World. The new ministry’s platforms will include a new print magazine and website, to launch in September, building on the legacies of their predecessors. Anabaptist World will use the tagline “Mennonite news, inspiring stories.” It will seek to reach members of all Mennonite groups, especially Mennonite Church U.S.A., the largest constituency of both predecessors. More broadly, it will appeal to anyone interested in Anabaptism, both within and outside Anabaptist denominations. Anabaptist World magazine will be published every three weeks, 16 times per year. It will include a mix of news, features and commentary. Paid circulation is estimated to be nearly 9,000 at launch. Subscribers of The Mennonite and Mennonite World Review will have the time left on their subscriptions added to their subscription of Anabaptist World. AnabaptistWorld.org will be the digital home for timely articles, podcasts and other multimedia. Digital readership will build on the predecessor platforms’ reach, which stretches into the tens of thousands monthly. The merger of The Mennonite Inc. and Mennonite World Review Inc. will create a new non-profit, Anabaptist World Inc. Its purpose statement says, “Anabaptist World Inc. is an independent journalistic ministry serving the global Anabaptist movement. We seek to inform, inspire and provide a forum where Mennonites and anyone interested in Anabaptism can explore faith and culture.”
