Barrie Free Methodist Church

“God’s Family, Knowing, Growing and Serving in Christ’s Love”

At BFMC we are a dynamic church family, learning to passionately follow Christ in our everyday lives.  With approximately 350 people, all ages and walks of life, we believe God has strategically placed us in North Barrie to serve and impact our neighbourhood for Jesus! We understand that Small Group connections are a place where discipleship, accountability, and spiritual growth are developed, and where active family caring happens best.  During our time in transition, our leadership have been prayerfully leaning in to God to discover His direction for BFMC in the coming years.  We are united in the pursuit of our new Vision and Mission statements, and eagerly anticipate the day that God directs a new Lead Pastor to us.

We are praying for a champion of discipleship and service, who encourages those within our leadership and church family to dig into God’s Word every day and respond to His calling.  The Lead Pastor for our family will model Christianity and be available and approachable; they will stand on the Truth of God’s Word and prayerfully aid in the discernment of church vision and direction, coming alongside the leadership to live out the current mission and vision while being open to hearing the Holy Spirit’s direction. Our new LP will be primarily responsible for pastoring the church body, the leadership and the Pastoral Team, as well as managing the office staff and pulpit.  With our active and passionate (not to mention fun!) leadership in place, our new Lead Pastor will not be burdened with managing all church activities, but is encouraged to continually grow personally, professionally, and spiritually.

Our church is located in Barrie, Ontario (Canada): a beautiful, family-friendly city of approximately 130,000, situated on Lake Simcoe’s Kempenfelt Bay.  We are one of Canada’s fastest growing cities with a high volume of young families and a great variety of festivals, attractions and recreation.  An hour to our south is Toronto, with all its culture, sporting events and international airport, etc. To our north is camping, canoeing and cottage country, making Barrie the ideal location to enjoy the best of both worlds!
