We exist to empower our churches to write new stories of Kingdom expansion

Scroll down through this page to learn facts about our area and the incredible need for the gospel.

We are excited about all that God is doing in the Greater Toronto Area through The Fellowships Church Planting Network! Since the beginning of time God has proven over and over again His faithfulness to His people that He has called out to fulfill His purpose. Our journey has proven no different. In three years we have seen God start three churches, change countless lives, transform marriages, communities impacted, and most importantly God being honoured through it all! I am thankful you are taking this opportunity to get to know the vision God has placed in our hearts and the story God continues to write through us.

ABOUT THE GREATER TORONTO AREA

DIVERSE

Toronto is the most diverse city in the entire world now according to the United Nations. 50% of the current population was foreign born.

RAPID GROWTH

The GTA ‘s growth rate has outpaced the entire nation’s growth rate for the past three consecutive years.

LIVING COSTS

The average home price in Durham Region (the East end of the GTA) is $702,768. Average rental costs are $1,750.

The Problem

“When he saw the crowds, he had compassion for them, because they were harassed and helpless, like sheep without a shepherd.”

MATTHEW 9:36

%

OF THE NEARLY 8 MILLION POPULATION IN THE GTA ARE LOST AND DO NOT KNOW JESUS CHRIST AS LORD

CNBC CHURCHES FOR 8 MILLION RESIDENTS

The Solution

NOT ONE CHURCH, BUT MANY

We believe that the greatest method of reaching people far from Christ is through church planting. We desire to plant 12 churches over the next 10 years on the east side of Toronto.
