Laura Amstutz in the news:
Laura Lehman Amstutz cares passionately about the church, the work of God in the world, and the people of God. Because of these passions she works in a wide variety of creative endeavors both for Eastern Mennonite Seminary and beyond.
At EMS she brings creativity into her marketing and admissions roles, helping to tell the stories of how EMS alumni and students are contributing to God’s work in the world. She is actively involved in the conversation about how the seminary trains people for ministry in diverse contexts. She also enjoys hearing prospective students’ stories of call and the way God is working to bring forth leaders for ministry. She and seminary alum Jeremy Yoder write and edit “Work and Hope: Finding Christ in the Church,” a blog for young adults to explore their connections to the institutional church.
Outside of EMS, she facilitates creative worship and leadership at The Table Mennonite Church in Harrisonburg, Va. She is also a spiritual director, helping individuals deepen their own sense of God’s presence in their lives. She is also occasionally involved in denomination-wide committees. She and her husband own a furniture store in Harrisonburg, Va.
