Many people are vaguely aware of Mennonites but do not understand where they came from or what they believe. They may think of the Amish and a rejection of technology, but that is only one part of a larger groups called the Anabaptists.
An important figure and the man who has lent his name to the Mennonites is Menno Simons. Menno Simons may not be as well known as Calvin or Luther but he is still a powerful figure in church history. I encourage you to watch this short video and learn about this influential Christian.
