Who We Are

Our Reflection

Just last year, we celebrated 75 years of God’s care upon our church. The decades past have built a rich foundation for the decades to come.  A typical Sunday morning will find a congregation of 250 in a contemporary service, with a spectrum of worship responses. But typical is not our goal. We long, younger and older, to engage with God in ways that convey His worth and our delight in being His children. We are not a “once a week” family. Opportunities to connect, learn and serve are offered through out the week. We are connected locally and serve globally. Our local partnerships include two other congregations which share heart and space with us. Can a Korean Presbyterian Church and a Congolese Pentecostal Church co-exist with a MB prairie congregation? Come any Sunday and see! Our local and global perspective for missions is deeply rooted in our DNA. It’s evident in our prayers, our going and our giving. We count our people, facility, land and location as gifts to be stewarded for God.

Our Home

Not only does Regina have one of the fastest growth rates in Canada, but it was also named as one of the best cities in Canada to find employment in 2016. It is also a “top ten” city for new immigrants. But our perspective is not defined by Stats Canada. You need “feet on the ground” to realize that we are surrounded by a growing community, largely made up of young families and those new to Canada.  We partner with local ministries to care for Regina and develop relationships through the University of Regina and our two sister congregations to address the practical needs of those adjusting to a new life in Regina. We recognize that God has placed before us ample opportunity to be a congregation which welcomes people not just to Canada but to Christ.

Our Heart

We realize that we are in transition. We are not simply “between” lead pastors, but we are “before” a new chapter of God’s story among us. We celebrate what has been and are excited by what can be. We are not blind to the challenges ahead. We’ve been able to name and own the places where God invites us to prepare for what’s new.  Here is our heart.  We long to be a people led by the Spirit. The simple motions of Church are not sufficient. We crave the reality of His presence. We want to deepen and expand our connections as a family of faith. We want to embrace His Word through clear proclamation and personal submission. We look to give ourselves to mission corporately and individually. We want to smile, both at our past with appreciation, and at our future with hope.

Assistant Professor of Biblical and Theological Studies

Canadian Mennonite University invites applications for a full-time, tenure-track faculty position in Biblical and Theological Studies.

The successful candidate will be a teacher-scholar in biblical studies (or a broader portfolio that includes biblical studies) who is able to engage a diverse student body at the undergraduate and graduate levels, and able to be involved with student research; an active researcher and writer, engaged with the life of their discipline; and a person interested in being part of the broader intellectual life and community of CMU.

We are committed to expanding our campus ethos to better reflect the global (catholic) nature of the faith; candidates who engage us with Indigenous standpoints or standpoints rooted in the global South are of particular interest to CMU.

Biblical and theological studies are at the core of CMU’s undergraduate liberal arts and sciences curriculum. Candidates interested in substantive cross-disciplinary engagement are therefore of strong interest to CMU.

CMU is a Christian liberal arts and sciences university rooted in the Anabaptist tradition, a Christian tradition emphasizing peace and community service. We expect faculty, in their teaching, research, and service, to engage productively and critically with the intellectual and spiritual life of the campus community. Applicants should hold a PhD or be near completion of their doctorate, have a solid theoretical and methodological background, a strong record of scholarly research, and a demonstrated commitment to excellence in teaching.

Winnipeg (population 750,000) is a vibrant, diverse city, the capital of Manitoba, and the cultural heart of Canada’s prairie provinces. Well known for its literary, musical and artistic scene, it is also home to four universities and several federal laboratories. CMU’s Shaftesbury campus includes a small farm, borders the Assiniboine Forest, one of North America’s largest urban forests, and is nearby the 450 ha (1,100 acre) Assiniboine Park, which includes the Assiniboine Park Zoo and Botanical Conservatory.

Interested candidates should submit: a letter of application; a curriculum vitae; a statement of teaching philosophy; a research statement; a statement on how their faith commitment would inform their teaching and scholarship at CMU; evidence of teaching effectiveness; and contact information for three references.

Subject to final budgetary approval, the appointment will begin July 1, 2019, or when the position is filled.

Rank will be commensurate with qualifications and experience. Review of applications will begin January 31, 2019, and will continue until the position is filled.
Nominations or inquiries about the nature of the post may be directed to Dr. Jonathan Dueck, Vice President Academic and Academic Dean, jdueck@cmu.ca / 204.594.0512.
