 Partner overview

 

 

Seminario Anabautista Latinoamericano (SEMILLA) is a seminary which provides Biblical and theological education for thirteen Anabaptist/Mennonite conferences in Central America and Mexico. They coordinate with Comunidad de Instituciones Teológicas Anabautistas (CITA). <p>The mission of Seminario Anabautista Latinoamericano <a href="http://www.semilla.org.gt/english%20home.html" target="_blank">SEMILLA</a> is to "prepare men and women to follow Jesus Christ faithfully and, thus, to live out the reign of God with justice and peace today."</p></br> <p>The seminary is commonly known as SEMILLA, which means seed in Spanish. In Luke 8:11 Jesus talks about the seed as "the Word of God" and in Matthew 13:38 Jesus refers to the children of God as "the good seed."</p><p>SEMILLA was initiated by the Central American Anabaptist conferences in the early 1980s as they recognized the value of their Anabaptist spiritual roots in their own context. They were inspired by the experiences of the early Anabaptists who also developed church communities and lived their faith in a context of social and economic injustice. </p></br> <p>Currently SEMILLA provides Biblical and theological education for thirteen Anabaptist/Mennonite conferences in Central America and Mexico, and is in the process of developing a collaborative project for online theological education in Spanish with a much broader reach. Mission Network is participating in this expanded project as well as in other aspects of theological education with SEMILLA.</p>
