SPECIAL VIDEO UPDATE
“And this is the confidence that we have toward him, that if we ask anything according to his will he hears us.” 1 John 5:14
Please pray that the final stages of the renovations will progress smoothly. Please also pray that the need for moving volunteers will be sufficient and coordination required to move back into the building will go well.
Please continue to pray that we would be able to meet our desire to worship at the church on Oct 8 2017: that there would be no delays in the delivery of materials, that the trades would be productive and be able to meet their deadlines and that the building would pass inspection on schedule.
Please pray for our site superintendent, Dean and his crew: for their safety while on the job, for clear communication amongst their team and that they would have good rest at the end of each day.
Please pray that we would not find any surprises in our building conditions that could increase our costs and that our contingency fund would be adequate until the end of the renovations.
Please pray for wisdom as we begin to develop building management policies that we would be able to use this building for the flourishing of the church, the city and to God's glory.
383 Jarvis st.
Our church is a community of grace, publicly expressing the gospel of Jesus Christ in word and deed to our city, Toronto. God has blessed our church since our first days in 2005, when we started with four people. We now number almost 500 adults every Sunday, with a growing number of skeptics and nominally-churched people attending our services in order to investigate the gospel.
We desire to see 383 Jarvis Street built into a new home for us and a place of grace, rest and mission in the heart of our city.
A PLACE FOR LEARNING, RENEWAL AND CHURCH PLANTING
383 Jarvis provides the space to fulfill our discipleship and internship training needs. It can also house our Church Planting Centre, training events and conferences of prayer and renewal for our city.
A MISSIONAL SPACE FOR GRACE IN THE CITY
As well as meeting our weekly service needs, it can become a center for mission-focused music and art outreaches, concerts and events to bring the experience of God’s transforming love to our city.
A CATALYST FOR COMPASSION
Located where rich and poor collide in our city, this is a place to live out the gospel to the spiritually hungry, the physically homeless, the emotionally downtrodden, and the economically broken, of our city.
Our vision is to build a movement that would multiply gospel-centered, missional believers in every part of this, and other, great cities. We do this by:
TAKING GOD'S GRACE TO THE CITY
We wish to nurture our congregation and reach out to our community.
TAKING GOD'S GRACE DEEP
We desire to equip and train our congregation to catalyze city transformation and deepen our leadership through discipleship.
TAKING GOD'S GRACE WIDE
We are raising up church leaders and missionaries through our gospel-centered and practical internship and coaching programs.
