Celebrate with us!
Jeff Pike

There are many things that I am learning on this journey of leadership and one of them is: celebrate every victory!

Today we are celebrating together as a Church family because of what God has already done.

As most of you know, we are planting under an Organization called ARC [Association of Related Churches]. As we approach our launch in September, ARC requires us to raise a minimum of $30,000 to launch strong. ARC will then match our funds raised dollar for dollar, ensuring that our first year as a new Church will be in a stable place financially.

Over this past year with the help of our families, our team and faithful contributors all over the world we have now reached our goal of $30,000!!!


Every step of this journey has stretched our faith and God has provided us with every need, We cannot contain our excitement!

We could not have reached this goal without your prayers and contributions to the vision of Groundswell Church, on behalf of myself, Mika and the whole team we want to thank you! We never take for granted the blessings that God has given us, and I believe it is important to honour Him through every season.

So, in saying all of this, we continue forward with our fundraising efforts and believe for God to continue to provide as He has already done. We strongly believe that Groundswell Church is a light in the city of Toronto, and there is much work to be done. We are a Church of great vision and with that comes great need for resource. I pray that we never lose our sense of ever-expanding vision for what God can do through us.

Our next goal moving forward, is to continue to raise an additional $20,000. ARC has guaranteed to match us dollar for dollar up to the total amount of $50,000. This will enable us to do so much for the people of Toronto, and within our first year as a Church to really become established in the community.

If you would like the opportunity to contribute to this you can give online here –> DONATE [Please indicate in the message/instructions section that your gift is allocated to “Groundswell Church”.] All gifts are tax deductible.

We know that when God begins something, He is always faithful to see it through.
So we daily proclaim His word in Philippians 1:6 [Msg] – ‘There has never been the slightest doubt in my mind that the God who started this great work in you would keep at it and bring it to a flourishing finish on the very day Christ Jesus appears.’

Thank you partners, friends and family for making this possible. We are humbled and full of expectancy to see what God is going to do next. We haven’t even launched yet and He is already opening doors to make this happen. He is so faithful.

So we hope that this news has blessed your socks off and made you as happy as we are, I am believing for many more victories like this one.

Standing together,
