A traveling historical exhibit has been created to educate and raise awareness among Mennonites about the Doctrine of Discovery. This professionally created timeline exhibit made its way from the MC USA Convention in Kansas City to Pennyslvania’s Mennonite World Conference during the summer of 2015. Venues for our exhibit since then have included: Bluffton College, the Mennonite Historical Society (Bluffton), Goshen College, Associated Mennonite Biblical Seminaries and local Mennonite historical societies in northern Indiana. It is beginning to make its way to various area conferences.
If you are interested in hosting this exhibit in your community, contact Anita Amstutz. Each of the eight panels of the exhibit is 30″ wide by 45″ tall.
