Alan J Kreider

Alan Kreider (Ph.D., Harvard University) is Emeritus Professor of Church History and Mission at Associated Mennonite Biblical Seminary
For 26 years, Alan and Eleanor, his wife, were mission workers in England, where they transformed the London Mennonite Centre into a teaching and resource center on Christian discipleship in the Anabaptist tradition, urban mission, and conflict mediation.


While in England, Alan served as director of the Centre for the Study of Christianity and Culture at Regent's Park College, Oxford University; as an itinerant preacher and speaker; and as a teacher at Oxford University and the University of Manchester.


Upon their return to the U.S. in 2000, Alan and Eleanor became mission educators for Mennonite Mission Network, an assignment that took them to England and Australia in 2005 as well as to churches and communities across North America. Alan served as an adjunct member of the AMBS faculty beginning in 1997, and became associate professor in 2004.


He is the author of The Change of Conversion and the Origin of Christendom: Christian Mission and Modern Culture and Worship and Mission After Christendom.
