Immanuel partners with Matt Hess and his church Fellowship Pickering, located in a neighborhood community in Toronto, Canada. We assist Matt by hosting community sporting events, conducting home surveys and hosting giveaway parties, all in an attempt to get to know local residents, share the Gospel message and introduce them to Matt and his leadership team.

Through this partnership, we have been able to lock arms together through prayer, participation, and provision in the planting of 3 additional churches in Rouge Park, Oshawa, and Bowmanville. Matt has the vision to plant an additional 9 churches through the Fellowships by 2023. Through the life of this partnership, Immanuel has mobilized 82 of our own through 6 different GO Teams and GO Internships. Through these GO efforts we have served 3,235 people with 1,160 hearing the Gospel and 61 praying to receive Christ.

Toronto, Ontario, Canada is the anchor city in the Greater Toronto Area (GTA) of over 8 million people. Toronto is widely considered to be the most diverse city in the world with at least 50% of its’ current population being foreign born. There is only one Canadian National Baptist Church for every 106,808 people. Pray that this city would be turned upside down by the Gospel of Jesus Christ!
