Faculty Fellow

DirectorJeremy Bergen teaches and writes in the area of contemporary Christian theology. His research interests include church apologies for historical wrongs, martyrdom, ecclesiology, ecumenism, the doctrine of the Holy Spirit, and contemporary Mennonite theology.  In his book Ecclesial Repentance: The Churches Confront Their Sinful Pasts (T&T Clark, 2011) he analyzed over 100 instances of churches apologizing for historical wrongs and proposed a theological framework for understanding this relatively new practice.  His current research project is a critical examination of the claim that Christian martyrdom advances the unity of otherwise divided churches.  Jeremy has been on faculty at Conrad Grebel University College Grebel since 2008, and the Director of Theological Studies since 2014. He is a crosslisted faculty member at the Toronto School of Theology (TST) and serves on a number of doctoral committees at TST. He has served as Director of the Toronto Mennonite Theological Centre (TMTC), Editor of The Conrad Grebel Review and was President of the Canadian Theological Society, 2016-2017.
