PAOC Mission Canada

Ejay Tupe

Many care about the state of a city yet due to daily busyness many are not able to positively influence those who find themselves either on the streets or in challenging life situations. For this reason, it is crucial that Mission Canada place workers in these gaps of our nation - people who know the city well, have the networks, and can bring life-transforming change to those who need it most. Ejay is here... in Toronto... because we must.

JP Gopalan

As a fellow worker in our PAOC family, JP Gopalan is an appointed Mission Canada worker, reaching those of various cultural languages and backgrounds in the Greater Toronto Area (GTA). His efforts are focused largely on those who have immigrated to Canada from Asian countries; Hindus, Buddhists, Muslims, while also seeking to spiritually impact atheists and those with no faith background or knowledge of God and His love for them. God enabled him to reach thousands of people on the street, high-rise buildings, in shopping complexes and college campuses. He also mentors through small groups. He can see the work of the Holy Spirit working in the lives of people: more than 100 people opened their hearts for the Lord Jesus Christ, several people healed and received the baptism in the Holy Spirit.

He is married to Sreela and has two children Samuel and Sophia.

Bill Prankard and Steven Carleton

The Arctic Hope Project is a groundbreaking project designed to stop suicide and develop community leaders among Inuit youth in Nunavut, Canada. They focus on providing a holistic approach of both culturally specific counselling and emotional resiliency training, as well as facilitating youth and elder round tables with local leaders to help develop a collaborative vision for community development. 

With the support of community stakeholders, local pastors, a culturally specific trauma and addictions counsellor and one of the founding fathers of Nunavut, this team is beginning to see both individuals and communities impacted by the love and transforming power of Jesus.

CITC - Church in the City logo

Church in the City

Church in the City began in 1985 under the leadership of Stone Church as a vision to plant a church in Toronto’s downtown core. After a few brief stays, CITC eventually found a permanent home in the historic St. Lawrence neighbourhood where we have been ever since.

Our vision is to “Make Christ known in the St. Lawrence and surrounding high-rise communities.” We strive to live out that vision to be a community church where more than 75% of our people walk to church and we are intentional in our outreach to build relationships with our neighbours and community leaders. We are thankful to reflect our neighbourhood as a multicultural and multigenerational church.

Our philosophy of growth is to replicate ourselves in the surrounding communities. In 2015, God allowed us to plant a second campus church in Regent Park. In 2018, God opened another door and allowed us to plant a third campus in the Canary District.

Thank You Stone Church!
