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.

A recent special issue of the journal Political Theology, guest-edited by TMTC associate Maxwell Kennel, showcases interdisciplinary approaches to political theology in and around the Mennonite tradition.
The issue includes an introduction that situates the essays in relation to both political theology and Mennonite studies, and four essays that cover Mennonite-feminist, queer and literary, and historical and theological approaches to Mennonite political theology.
