The ministry

The Jesus Network has been at the forefront of ministry in Toronto since its inception in 2007, providing hands-on ministry to the communities we serve. We are focused on being the "hands and feet" of Jesus in the city by coming alongside and meeting the needs of people from various background, ethnicities and religions. The Jesus Network is a cross-cultural ministry that is focused on being agents of hope and change in Toronto influencing others through the message of Jesus Christ.
