Health Ministry

The purpose of the health ministry program is to help individuals stay well and to create a feeling of deeper caring throughout the church community.

The Health Ministry presents a creative new way for our church to provide a holistic ministry to the community and our congregation. Our goal is to staff medical professionals to work as ministers of health. In this way our congregation can play an increasingly important role in keeping people spiritually and physically healthy and offer leadership in the field of preventative medicine.

“…..and He sent them to preach the kingdom of God and to heal the sick.” (Luke 9:2) Jesus sent the disciples out to preach, teach and heal. Jesus healed the whole person: physically, emotionally, and spiritually. WHAT IS HEALTH MINISTRY? Health Ministry is designed to reclaim the church’s role in a holistic approach to health. Our response to the modern and often fragmented medical model of care is to offer and environment of learning and healing where the entire person is nurtured in an atmosphere of community and fellowship which puts God in the center of life and health.

  • WE ARE THE HANDS AND FEET OF JESUS…

    Portland Place
    - Several times each year we celebrate and share with the people of Portland Place. Through karaoke, bbq's, Christmas parties, flower garden planting and more, we share in the lives of our inner-city brothers and sisters.

    Evangel Hall
    - Once or twice each year we have the opportunity to prepare and serve dinner at Evangel Hall, providing dinner for 80-100 people. It is a wonderful time of blessing for all involved.

    Prayer Shawls
    - Our Prayer Shawl ministry team provides prayer shawls for those who are ill, new babies, university students, confirmation participants, and more. It is a wonderful blessing for both those who create and those who receive these meaningful shawls.

    Senior's Lunch
    - Each month we provide lunch and a speaker for seniors who live in our community. We invite speakers to share insights on relevant health issues, particularly for seniors.

    Christmas
    We share in many outreach ministries during the Advent and Christmas Season including:
    - Mitten Tree: each year we collect mittens, hats, and scarves for people living in Toronto
    - Christmas Angels: we help new refugee families celebrate their first Christmas in Canada with warm clothes, food, and some special gifts.
    - YSM (Yonge Street Mission) Shoe-boxes: families load up shoe-boxes filled toys for inner-city children living in Toronto.
