As a center for educational leadership in the Church of the Brethren, Bethany Seminary includes in its mission the extending of resources to people and places outside the classroom. By being present in district, congregational, and other group settings, members of the Bethany community can both provide venues for discourse and learning on important topics of faith and strengthen relationships among the Seminary and all institutions and individuals of the church.

Nan Erbaugh
Emphasis in Peace Studies '08

NanBethany taught me so much. I didn't realize what a loner I had really been all my life until I opened myself to life within the Bethany community. I felt stretched, pushed, and affirmed in amazing, helpful ways. The importance of a close, supportive community cannot be overestimated, especially in light of the challenges faced living out the peace witness to which I feel called. At Bethany, I gained more courage to step into this crucial niche of the Church of the Brethren. Add the grounded, spiritual theological foundation and academic depth I gained through course work, and I feel transformed in a powerful, positive way to serve God.
