Anabaptist History & Philosophy Explored

Sensenig Ken MCC Asst DirThe Tel Hai LEC (Life Enrichment Committee)  is pleased to offer a two-session exploration of Amish and Mennonite traditions on Friday, March 7 and 14, 2014 at 1:00pm in the Gathering Room on Tel Hai’s campus, east of Route 10 off Beaver Dam Road. The lecturer, Kenneth Sensenig, will provide lively sessions exploring the journey of these Anabaptist groups in the United States.

He brings a keen interest in the work of the church and has spoken extensively about the historical context of Anabaptist churches in a variety of venues. Residents of Ephrata, Lancaster County, Ken and his family have long-served with MCC in Swaziland and Sudan, as well as short term experiences in Central and South America and Europe.
