The nature of the church has been a long-standing interest for Lois Barrett. It was the encompassing frame for her work as executive secretary of the Commission on Home Ministries for the General Conference Mennonite Church for almost ten years, her service as a pastor of an urban congregation, her research and writing about house churches and about missional ecclesiology, and her doctoral dissertation on early Anabaptist religious and cultural history. After 12 years as a board member of the Great Plains Seminary Education Program, she became director when that program became an extension site of AMBS in 2002. Serving as administrator and instructor in the program calls out the best of Lois’s gifts of teaching, administration, and empowering people to serve the church.
