Abram Nachtigal (11 May 1876-6 February 1950) was a leading minister among the Mennonite Brethren (MB). He was born in Franzthal, South Russia, as the son of Peter Nachtigal. He studied with Kornelius Unruh in Orloff, and also supplemented his education by much reading. In Russia he was a member of the Allianz-Gemeinde in Lichtfelde and for 19 years was its leading minister. He taught school a few years, and later served as manager of a Mennonite forestry service camp. A gifted evangelist and youth worker, he served both in Russia and Canada as an itinerant minister. In his home church he was valued as minister, Bible school teacher, and youth worker. Besides numerous articles in the church papers he published two booklets, Unter dem Kreuz and Gesegnete Spaziergänge eines Vaters mit seinem Vierzehnjährigen (Yarrow, 1947). He was known for his poetry as well as his story-telling and his preaching.
