Anabaptist Center for Religion and Society (ACRS)

The Anabaptist Center for Religion and Society (ACRS) is partnering with Buller Films LLC to help make phase one (research and scripting) of this documentary possible by:

  • Providing academic resources for this documentary
  • Offering tax deductible receipts for contributions
  •  Supplying entree to the Mennonite community

ACRS engages in the following:

  • interact and move forward with difficult and conflictive theological and social issues, overcoming polarization and avoidance
  • share “Monday Morning Stories,” transmitting the heritage to the next generation through the autobiographies of servants, leaders and heroes
  • hold forums on current issues of the church, university and community
  • sponsor conferences of interest to the Anabaptist constituency
  • dialogue in cyber space on selected core questions
  • critique and encourage writing/research by members
  • mentor scholars, and facilitate research, writing, and publication
  • facilitate the work of visiting scholars at EMU, especially Anabaptist research by post-professional or post-doctoral people
  • bridge the gaps between academia and community
  • serve as a think-tank for EMU administration and faculty
  • provide a social and institutional identity—a point of gathering for community and fellowship—for academic colleagues after leaving the classroom at EMU or one of its neighboring academic institutions
