A Call for More: Trinity Life

SNAtoronto_weblanding[se]

When we think about the desperately lost places in the world we often think of Africa, Asia, or some place across the pond.  All the while, there is a multitude of lost nations just 14 hours from our front door (Cabool, MO).  Toronto, Canada has 6 million people living in the metropolitan area.  It contains 1/5 of the entire population of Canada and over 1/2 of the city’s population is foreign born. However,  in this diverse city there is only one Canadian National Baptist Convention church for every 167,000 people. As one church planter has stated,

The largest growing religion in Toronto is “none.”

Therefore there is desperate need to pray for workers for this harvest.

God in his divine wisdom has already begun this work.  In 2013 Daniel Yang and Mike Seaman answered this call to plant a church in this harvest field.  In January of 2013 these two men providentially met and God joined their hearts together around one agenda, making disciples in Toronto. Out of this meeting came the birth of Trinity Life Church (TLC) in September 2013.  God has blessed their efforts and allowed the seed of their core group to grow into 90 – 1oo regular attending adults.    Watch this video to hear their heart for the city and then consider doing more.

The Call to More

PRAY

Please be in prayer for this ministry in the following ways:

  • The LGBTQ community is HUGE in Toronto and Canada. They are the most protected and elevated community, along with Muslims, within the city. Trinity Life Church desires to serve both of these communities and build bridges with the local churches. If they’re going to make any headway in their city with the gospel, then they need to actively pursue relationships here. They need much wisdom on this issue!
  • Space is a huge issue in Toronto especially downtown. Since they’re growing, they need a space that will accommodate them. The other issue is, space is very expensive in downtown. They need God to provide!
  • Pray God would bless them with continued fruitfulness in this diverse and much needed ministry.

 

ENCOURAGE

As was stated before in a previous post, if we are to do more then we must care.  Take time to express your care by sending the leaders of this church a note of encouragement or a written prayer.  You can also follow the church on Facebook for more ways to encourage them.

 

GIVE
