Our church planting roots

The purpose of GBCanada USA is to fulfill our vision by stimulating and supporting a movement of church planting across Canada. Our strategy is to recruit and raise up leaders who will organize and lead core church planting teams into targeted urban areas to establish Regional Mother Churches. These regional churches will then plant clusters of daughter churches in their surrounding areas. Our fundamental role in the church planting movement is to empower our local churches to multiply by aiding in the recruitment of new leaders and facilitating their development. Because we believe that a true movement can only happen through the churches themselves, we are committed to our churches and invested in their leaders.

GBCanada began by planting Grace Community Church in Mississauga, Ontario in 1998. Our mission is driven by the dedication of the leaders you see below. Click on their profiles to learn more about their individual efforts.
