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.
