July Transitions 2012

The Jesus Network (www.jesusnetwork.ca) is growing. Started as a “614” partnership church plant, the Toronto-based incarnational ministry has taken two other incarnational Toronto MB plants – Hope Community Church, pastored by Kevin Moore and House for All Nations Toronto, pastored by Jacob Nuh – into its structure to function as a multisite missional organization. The church shares one board and financial structure, but each “campus” maintains its unique ministries and approaches. The first focuses on South Asians in a particular neighbourhood. Hope Community Church (previously called 614 St. Jamestown) “takes church to where people are” in a very densely populated neighbourhood of new Canadians who are mostly unfamiliar with Christianity. Not location-based, HFAN is a worshipping community and outreach ministry for Indonesians in the Greater Toronto Area.
