Shenandoah Christian Music Camp was started with a focus on serving conservative Anabaptist communities. We don’t confine ourselves to benefitting only Anabaptists, and we hope to serve the church as a whole, but in general we do so by strengthening the music and worship of our communities.
Anabaptism is not a single denomination or a church group. It is in fact quite diverse, and includes many different church groups with similar historical roots and perspectives. These churches originated in Europe during the Reformation as a distinct, non-centralized movement that was neither Catholic nor Protestant in theology or practice. The movement, called by some the “Radical Reformation,” emphasizes lived obedience to the teachings of Jesus and the apostles.
Some groups that we tend to serve are various groups of Mennonites, Beachy, Amish, River Brethren, Charity, Brethren, Kleine Gemeinde, and unaffiliated Anabaptist churches. We serve individuals from non-Anabaptist churches as well.
