City, State Description of Organization

HISTORY Grace Fellowship Church Don Mills was established in January 2011. Beginning with around 20 members, the church initially met at a home and later moved to Greenland Public School for more space. By the end of the year, the church had doubled in membership. In 2014, the church moved to Senator O'Connor College School, where it stayed until COVID-19 restrictions forced them to relocate to the Latvian Canadian Cultural Centre in September 2020. The church joined the Great Commission Collective in January 2021 and currently has 3 elders and 5 church staff. The church has approximately 150 members, with around 200 people attending on a Sunday morning.

VISION Grace Fellowship Church is committed to continually beholding the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ so that we may reflect his image, bringing his blessing to all of his creation.

Beholding His Glory: We believe that the fullness of God's glory is revealed through Jesus and aim to behold him in order to know God, the source of all joy and life.

Becoming Like Him: As humans, we were created to reflect God's image, but sin has damaged our ability to do so; still, our reflection of those around us shows that we are always becoming what we behold, and as Christians, we rely on the Spirit to help us behold Christ and become like Him, which will be completed when we see Him face-to-face.

Blessing His Creation: God created Adam and Eve in his image and likeness to reflect his gracious rule over creation, but sin marred this image and Christians, as they behold Jesus and are transformed into his image, become salt and light, bringing the good news of Christ's reign and blessing to all of creation until the moment when they finally become like him because they see him as he is.

COMMUNITY Grace Fellowship Church Don Mills is a church that is committed to the vision of Beholding, Becoming, and Blessing. Our vibrant church community is located in the heart of Toronto's east end and serves a diverse neighbourhood made up of families, young professionals, and seniors. We strive to provide a warm and welcoming atmosphere where people can come together and worship God in spirit and truth. Our church is conveniently located in a neighbourhood with a mix of detached homes, townhouses, and apartments; it is close to public transit (including the new Eglinton Crosstown) and major highways making it accessible to everyone in the surrounding community. We are committed to serving and reaching out to all members of the community with the Gospel. We are a diverse community of believers that reflects the multiculturalism of Toronto. With a population of approximately 14,580, the neighbourhood has significant populations of South Asian, Chinese, and Filipino residents, and about 61% of the population are visible minorities. At Grace Fellowship Church Don Mills, we offer a range of programs and activities for all ages that are designed to help us grow in our faith and serve our neighbourhood. These include Sunday worship services, Bible studies, discipleship programs, prayer meetings, youth group, children's ministries, and more. We are actively seeking a new Senior Pastor who can lead us in fulfilling the Great Commission and continue to foster our commitment to beholding, becoming, and blessing. Our church community is eager to grow and expand our impact in the neighbourhood, and we believe that with the guidance of a new pastor, we can achieve great things for the glory of God.
