Introducing the MennoNerds Network

I’m proud to announce that the Emerging-Anabaptist is part of a new network called MennoNerds. Ok, so if you follow me on Twitter or even regularly follow the blog, you’ve probably heard of this and it isn’t really “new.” But I’ve finally gotten the site to the point that I feel comfortable promoting it. So here’s a quick introduction:

What Is It?

We’re a group of Anabaptist/Mennonite bloggers from around North America (hopefully including some from other parts of the world over time). Along with our theological tendencies most of us also happen to be of the nerdy variety so it isn’t a coincidence that pretty much all of us met through Twitter or other social networks. Just use the #MennoNerds hashtag on Twitter and one of us will probably see it.

What Do We Do?

Primarily we blog. The MennoNerds site at its core is simply an aggregator of our respective sites. Some are very regular bloggers. Some are less frequent bloggers. But we all are interested in how to best pursue discipleship to Jesus in our contexts, particularly operating through an Anabaptist lens.

We also are investigating podcasts. As of writing this, we’ve done a test Google Hangout through the Anabaptist Alliance Community. We intend to do some more, probably about every two weeks, and start recording them to upload to the site and YouTube.

Ryan Robinson

It is easiest to identify Ryan as both theologian and tech guy. By day, Ryan is a Technical Consultant work with PeaceWorks Technology Solutions. There, he works on websites, CRMs, and SharePoint implementations. Along with blogging here, Ryan is a founding member of the MennoNerds blogging network and a contributor to the book A Living Alternative.

  • Personally proud to be a MennoNerd… Not sure how this exploded from a twitter hashtag a year or so ago, but here we are and some AMAZING conversations have occurred. Thanks, Ryan, for helping with the technical aspects.

    #MennoNerds4Life

    I concur with Robert! Cool that a simple hashtag from a year ago connected a bunch of Anabaptist practitioners and writers from around NA! You’ve been a super hero on the tech end of things!! #SuperMennoNerdTechGuy
