I am a lifelong learner, and approach each day as an opportunity from God to learn, trust, love, serve and forgive. I am very grateful for my life journey; both its blessings and challenges. I moved from Korea to Canada at the age of 16, and God has expanded my faith and views through it. I have found true strength and courage from God's words (teachings of Jesus) and grace to embrace and overcome challenges I faces (as well as celebrating blessings); such as the death of my father and coming to Canada from Korea. I trust God, and I deeply care about sharing God's good news, grace and healing with others, which eventually led me into the Christian ministry. I am also a husband, a father of two young children, and a child of who searches for the meaning if life daily.

Paul Curley - Praise Team Leader
I am the leader of the Praise Team. I've been involved with music my whole life, playing guitar and singing. I have been a part of the Praise Team for three years now and it is an honor to be appointed the leader of this wonderful group of people. We do pretty much contemporary music and encourage the congregation to join us in singing glory and praise to God. I've been involved with a few old time Gospel Sings as well. We are always looking for new members so if the spirit was to move you to join us, look me up after the service.
