Biographical Sketch

Jacob A. Loewen was born in 1922, in Russia. He completed his elementary and secondary education in Canada. He continued with his education, receiving a B.A. in humanities from Tabor College, Hillsboro, Kansas in 1947. In 1952, he received an M.A. from the University of Washington and finally a Ph.D. in linguistics in 1958, also from the University of Washington.

While education remained important to him, he devoted his life to working in the mission field for the Mennonite Brethren church. On August 9, 1945, Loewen married Anne Enns. From 1947–1957, they served as missionaries in Columbia with MBMS International. Their assignment was to live with the Wounaan indigenous people in Noanama and learn the local language. During his time there, Loewen worked to reduce the Choco language to writing in Columbia as well as in Panama.

In 1964, Loewen began working in Lima, Peru as a translations consultant with the American and United Bible Societies. Loewen trained translators and helped to improve the quality of Bible translations throughout South America. Loewen also worked with M.C.C. (Mennonite Central Committee) in Peru. From 1979 to 1984, Loewen served in West Africa, again as a translations consultant for the American and United Bible Societies.

Loewen also taught languages and anthropology at Tabor College in Hillsboro, Kansas. During the summers he researched and worked with Waunan Indians in Panama. He frequently published articles on language and mission, writing in journals such as Practical Anthropology, Missiology, and The Bible Translator. Loewen also authored several books, including The Christian Encounter with Culture, Only the Sword of the Spirit, and Onze ieashte Missjounsreiz.

Loewen died on January 27, 2006. By his death, he had worked to translate, learn, and teach over a hundred different languages as a means of understanding other cultures and communicating the global mission of the Mennonite Brethren church.
