Increasingly Diverse Toronto Church Seeking a Full-time Pastor

Willowdale Christian Reformed Church (WCRC) is seeking a full-time pastor who can help lead us into the future that God has begun to show us. WCRC is located in Toronto, Ontario a city of extraordinarily diverse neighbourhoods of which Willowdale is one. This church of 200+ members, founded in 1962, has quickly transitioned from a relatively mono-cultural church into a congregation of both life-long and newly converted Christians, including many refugees and new immigrants. It is a testament to God’s grace that every week we welcome new people who are seeking to learn and share their faith among us. In 2022 we were blessed to baptize more than 50 new Christians.

Our council and congregation are embracing this movement of the Spirit and are now seeking the right person to lead us as a full-time pastor. In addition to demonstrating a love for God in their life, our pastor will:

  • understand that weekly worship, including weekly communion, as well as regular fellowship are central to the life of the church;
  • have a passion for biblical preaching that leads us to know God’s grace and love, and helps us find unity in Jesus Christ;
  • can show a passion for and ability to minister cross-culturally, showing God’s love for each person;
  • be a servant-leader who is ready and able to work collaboratively with other leaders and help disciple new leaders.
