Full-time Pastoral Staff Position:


Bayview Glen Church ( is looking for a gifted pastor who will provide leadership for its mission to foster authentic Christian community. This individual should have demonstrated expertise in casting and fulfilling ministry vision, creating and implementing strategies that foster community for both Christians and those who don’t yet know Jesus (e.g. small groups, life-stage ministries, bible studies, affinity groups, etc.), and an exceptional ability to recruit, train, and deploy volunteer community group leaders from within the congregation. The individual should be a high-level leader, skilled at bringing people together in an environment that builds Christian relationships, a creative strategist, and, above all, a caring shepherd of God’s people.


Church Background: 


Mission: Bayview Glen Church exists to glorify God, foster community, and make disciples. 


History: With deep roots in a rich, Christ-honouring history, Bayview Glen Church has grown into a thriving, multi-ethnic, and Christ-centred community located in the heart of the Greater Toronto Area. Our mission is to create environments where God alone is the focus, where people connect with one another in authentic relationships, and where individuals develop into mature followers of Jesus. Our strategy for accomplishing the mission isn’t complicated—we worship together, we grow in community, and we receive training for the task at hand. 


Location: Bayview Glen Church is located in Markham, Ontario, right on the northern boundary of Metropolitan Toronto, which is often identified as the world’s most ethnically diverse city. As a result, more than 100 nationalities and more than 60 mother tongues are represented in the 800-900 congregants that attend Bayview Glen on an average Sunday.  Within a commutable distance there are many excellent public schools and private schools, sports and community activities, parks, shopping, and more.

Where we are headed: In the past 18 months, Bayview Glen has grown from a church of 475 to 850 on an average Sunday. As a result, Bayview Glen has launched an additional Sunday worship service to accommodate attendance. We are committed to aggressive outreach in our local community in order to make a difference for the Gospel. These initiatives will likely produce additional worship services as we continue to grow. Bayview Glen has recognized a need to create opportunities for its growing congregation to engage in authentic Christian community. We are seeking an experienced pastor to bring leadership to that initiative.
