HUMANITAS CENTRE


Humanitas Anabaptist-Mennonite Centre is the product of a partnership between the Mennonite Faith and Learning Society (MFLS) and Trinity Western University (TWU). The MFLS has partnered with TWU to establish a multi-disciplinary research centre focused on bringing an Anabaptist-Mennonite perspective to addressing today’s challenges and pressing issues and fostering research and teachings on Anabaptist-Mennonite history, practice, and values.


THE DIRECTOR


The first Director of the new venture, Myron Penner—also a TWU Professor of Philosophy and the Dean of the Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences—has suggested that the Centre will foster scholarly research, sponsor lectures on and off campus, and organize conferences. It will enhance TWU student experience by exposing students to Anabaptist and Mennonite streams of Christian life and thought.






FOSTERING CONVERSATION

  • With Mennonites largely integrated socially into the larger community, we need guidance and instruction about the practical dimensions of being a spiritually separated people.

    John Redekop
    Former president of the Mennonite Faith and Learning Society
  • I see the [Humanitas Centre] at TWU as a critical space for fostering conversation about the relevance of our Anabaptist tenets of faith, to our lives and to others, in culture, and that it will enlarge the perception about what Christians care about.

  • The public lecture continues our connection to our constituency. It brings people to campus and demonstrates that TWU is a place where issues and ideas are explored with excellence.

    Director of the A-MCFL and Associate Professor of Philosophy
