Faith Church exists to glorify God by discipling people in the Gospel to love God, God’s people, and God’s world. Established in Toronto, Ontario on May 9, 2004, by a small group of single young adults with a pastor’s family, our growing church now has an expanding next-generation ministry (FaithKids, FaithYouth, and FaithYoungAdults), a wonderful missionary support ministry, and a committed core group of members dedicated in serving the local community called Willowdale. Faith Church is part of The Fellowship of Evangelical Churches (FEB).
In obedience to the Lord, our founding pastor is formally establishing a leadership ministry that will serve local churches and organizations. He will transition out of his current role at the end of 2022.
Therefore, our Faith Family is seeking a new full-time senior pastor to shepherd our congregation.
