Third Way engages those who seek information online about Mennonites, and serves as a portal for those who seek to live out their Christian faith through Anabaptist values such as simple living, acts of service, and an emphasis on community, justice and peace.

Third Way is produced by MennoMedia, on behalf of the Mennonite Churches of the U.S. and Canada. The Mennonite Church exists in many countries around the world.

The site started in 1998, with a goal of “helping the church be relevant and effective in carrying out its mission using the contemporary media of the age.”

Since its beginning days, Third Way Café has had over a million visitors; has undergone four redesigns; and staff have continued to add new content and try to keep up with the ever-changing Internet landscape.

Why is this site called Third Way?

  • We hope it sounds inviting to anyone exploring things that are different.
  • Many times we think there are only two choices or options when actually there is a third or alternate way between two choices.
  • It reflects the fact that Mennonites and Anabaptists are somewhere between Catholic and Protestant on many theology issues–a third way. If you want to know more about beliefs, visit Who are the Mennonites?

Ultimately we are not so concerned with being Anabaptist, Catholic, or Protestant, but simply being faithful disciples of Jesus!
