Are you paying attention to what the Spirit is saying to you and calling you to do for the next stage of your life?

The special guest for this episode of the Ohio Conference Cast podcast, Jewel Gingerich Longenecker, would encourage everyone to consider that question.

Jewel Gingerich Longenecker is dean of lifelong learning at Anabaptist Mennonite Biblical Seminary (AMBS) in Elkhart, Indiana. In this episode, she shares some of her faith journey with podcast hosts Corben Weaver Boshart and Ramon Lianez. They also discuss the many ways that people can pursue theological education through AMBS, especially the seminary’s Journey program.

Ramon is currently participating in the Journey program. Listen to this podcast to hear what he has to say about the experience.

Journey is a program for lay leaders, pastors, church planters, and other emerging leaders who are called without specific training for ministry or who are exploring a call to ministry. Ohio Conference is one of three conferences which partners with AMBS for the Journey program. For more information, visit
