Jan 12th, 2010 | By | Category: Features, Lead Article

In 2003, Conrad L. Kanagy, Associate Professor of Sociology at Elizabethtown College, travelled to visit the Mennonite church in Ethiopia. In Africa, he saw a vibrant and growing church, one that today has a much larger Mennonite population than all of North America. Upon returning to the U.S., Kanagy knew that this was a story that needed to be told. As a sociologist, Kanagy was particularly interested in telling that story by documenting through survey research the attitudes, beliefs and values of Mennonite Christians in the global south.
