The Sider Institute

Mission of the Sider Institute


Founded in 1999, the Sider Institute for Anabaptist, Pietist, and Wesleyan Studies at Messiah College promotes the exploration of Anabaptism, Pietism, and Wesleyanism—the theological traditions that shape the “personality” of the Brethren in Christ Church, the founding denomination of Messiah College, and that inform the College’s educational mission.
