Religion Library: Anabaptist


Written by:

Conservative Anabaptist groups choose ministers by lot, drawing upon the male membership within a congregation; these ministers are typically unpaid and ordained for life. Progressive Anabaptist groups hire college--and/or seminary--educated pastors endorsed by a regional or denominational body; some progressive groups ordain women as well as men.
