Harold Jantz's Contributions

"Longtime editor of the Mennonite Brethren Herald, Harold Jantz (1964-1984) led the way. Jantz displayed a remarkable ability to bring people and ideas together. His editorial work displayed the courage and sensitivity to discuss everything from politics to homosexuality, and the creativity and ingenuity to blend inner spirituality with social action, Evangelicalism with Anabaptism. After 21 years of service, Jantz left this work to a variety of other editors, including Herb Kopp (1985-1988), Ron Geddert (1989-1994), Jim Coggins (1995-2003), Susan Brandt (2003-2005), Laura Kalmar (2005- ), but the Herald's attempt to find unity amidst diversity continued." (Giesbrecht 2005)


"In 1987 ChristianWeek founder Harold Jantz launched a small newspaper with a big vision—nothing less than opening a window on Christian faith and life in Canada. Against the odds, it succeeded, and ChristianWeek has been publishing the stories of God and his people in Canada ever since.

Fostering connections between Christians throughout one of the largest countries in the world has been a difficult, sometimes daunting challenge. But today a network of regional correspondents keeps readers in touch with issue and events near and far." (ChristianWeek 2007)

Canada’s national Christian newspaper continues to attract thousands of readers throughout the country. Read more about ChristianWeek here.
