Upcoming Events

Servant leadership is our core principle. Jesus said that “The greatest among you will be the least, and the least will be the greatest. For even the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, even to give his life as a ransom for many.” Mark 10:43­-45. Jesus spoke through word and deed to what leadership really means. He takes the world’s view of leadership and flips it upside down. Our desire is to serve and our leaders are those who lead by serving.

Leadership Team

The Leadership at FWC - The Peoples Church in Toronto has three groups; each accountable to the other two, serving under Christ, the head. The first being a Pastoral Team, consisting of pastors and elders who provide spiritual leadership and promote discipleship, and second, a Planning Team that serves in an executive leadership capacity, establishing the mission of the church in Toronto and coordinating the strategy to accomplish this mission. The third group consists of Small Group Leaders, who, with their friends, serve and build meaningful community within the peoples church in Toronto. In addition, numerous volunteers serve within the church under these three groups.
