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.

  3. Nov. 30, 2020Mennonite Scholars and Friends Forum Recording Available
    2020 Online Forum

    The Mennonite Scholars and Friends Forum, which takes place annually in conjunction with the American Academy of Religion and Society of Biblical Literature meetings, took place virtually on Friday, 20 November 2020. The Forum this year consisted of a round table conversation on the newly released volume Recovering from the Anabaptist Vision, the first volume in T&T Clark's Studies in Anabaptist Theology and Ethics series managed by our friends at the Institute of Mennonite Studies at Anabaptist Mennonite Biblical Seminary. While it was disappointing not to be able to gather in person, the virtual format enabled broader participation and we were delighted to have all the editors and contibutors to the volume present as well as roughly 80 participants. The presentations and Q&A sessions were recorded and we are pleased to make those available online.
