New Life Christian Church in Toronto ON Canada is committed to the vision of building a vibrant, outward looking, multi-cultural community of faith. The church began 18 years ago as a re-start from 2 merging congregations and has dual denominational connections (Be In Christ / Ontario Conference of Mennonite Brethren Churches). The church building is located in Scarborough but welcomes people from across the GTA. The church has experienced renewed growth recently under the leadership of the current pastor who is retiring in August of 2018. Sunday morning attendance averages 125 utilizing a blended worship style. Services are joy filled occasions often followed by a fellowship meal. There is a healthy cross section of age groups represented. Cell group meetings throughout the week provide means for fellowship and discipleship.

If married – a supportive spouse is essential. An undergraduate degree in Biblical Studies is a minimum requirement.
