Many of my life experiences have been surrounded by church and everything that entails. I was born into the church so it’s fair to say I’ve had some not so great moments in church but I’ve also had some incredible life-changing encounters that I can’t imagine my life without. When I was at home for Christmas break in Toronto, I went to the last 2 churches I was at before I left for University, Malvern Christian Assembly and Agincourt Pentecostal Church (One Church). I really only went to Youth groups there, but anyone who’s been with me while I was there knows that we had the time of our lives on Friday nights! I was surrounded by influencing leaders and a solid support group. (Shout out to Pastor Dean and Pastor Will and Suzie) No doubt that there were many ups and downs but from those days community is what stands out the most and the fact that it was all anchored by Jesus is what makes me want to introduce and open up the church to more and more people. This is only part of the reason I’m on this journey.
