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.

    TMTC Graduate Student Conference

    The Ninth Biennial Graduate Student Conference hosted by the Toronto Mennonite Theological Centre took place virtually from June 17-19 2021.

    The conference explored the theme of Hope, Despair, Lament. The primary purpose of the conference is to provide a forum for graduate students who work on Anabaptist/Mennonite related topics and/or who identify with Anabaptist/Mennonite traditions to present their ongoing academic research in an interdisciplinary context and engage with each other as colleagues and peers. We were thrilled to welcome over 50 participants from 8 different countries over the course of the conference - connecting in conference sessions and other virtual gatheings.

    The keynote lecture with Dr. David Evans entitled “American History Never Was American to Me” and the Hymn Festival led by Dr. Sarah Johnson are now available to view online.
