Toronto Mennonite Theological Centre

The Toronto Mennonite Theological Centre (TMTC) helps form theological leadership for the church by providing and supporting graduate theological education, particularly at the doctoral level, from a Mennonite perspective in an ecumenical context. 

TMTC encourages scholars to grow toward wise theological discernment, spiritual depth and maturity, excellent scholarship, mutual respect and dialogue, ecumenical and global awareness.

Founded in 1990, TMTC is now administered by Conrad Grebel University College on behalf of a binational Mennonite constituency represented by an Advisory Council. It operates within the ecumenical and academic environment of the Toronto School of Theology at the University of Toronto.

  1. Apr. 6, 2020TMTC Writing Retreat Goes Virtual

    We had planned to host a one-day structured writing retreat in Toronto, with TMTC associate Allison Murray (pictured) as our facilitator, on March 27th. Structured writing retreats give people a chance to dedicate time to writing while also breaking up the typically lonely experience that writing can be. We were looking forward to gathering a group together, feeding them, and giving them the chance to make progress on their writing projects in a supportive, communal environment. When the University of Toronto urged the cancellation of all discretionary events we thought we wouldn’t be able to host the retreat after all. But, with a bit of work, we were able to adapt the retreat program and move it online!

    Given the evolving circumstances surrounding the response to the global pandemic, the Toronto Mennonite Theological Centre's Ninth Biennial Graduate Student Conference, scheduled for 18–20 June 2020, has been postponed.

  3. Mar. 12, 2020Event Postponements

    The response to the COVID-19 outbreak is moving very quickly. Our focus is on protecting the health and safety of everyone associated with TMTC as well as the wider community. The latest advice from the University of Toronto, which TMTC is committed to follow, is now encouraging the postponement of all discretionary events that are not part of courses and academic requirements. This means our 2020 Public Lecture, Writing Retreat, and April Scholars Forum are all postponed as of today. We will look to reschedule these events at a future date.

    Thank you for your continued support of TMTC and of each other as we all navigate this dynamic situation together.
