C3 Mennonites in the Valley

Discription: A Christian group with agrarian and religious origins in 16th-century Europe, Mennonites were among the earliest settlers in the Shenandoah Valley. Today their local descendants include a number of separate and distinct Mennonite groups, ranging from conservative to progressive Mennonites. This course will focus on up-close-and-personal interaction with area Mennonites and will include trips to visit Mennonite institutions, churches, schools, businesses, and homes.

Instructor: Phil Kniss
grew up in a Mennonite family in Florida and has spent 29 years in the Mennonite community in Harrisonburg. He has pastored two local Mennonite congregations, and for the last 17 years has been senior pastor at Park View Mennonite Church.

Additional fees:
Approximately $18.00, payable to the instructor for a lunch prepared and served in an Old Order Mennonite home. This is an optional event.
