We are a growing church in the heart of Northwestern Ontario with a strong desire to reach the unchurched and be a community that is a welcoming and engaging place for people of all walks of life.

About Thunder Bay

People tend to see TBay as the middle of nowhere and that’s what makes it such an amazing place to live and work and raise a family.  We are in the heart of Northwestern Ontario and have all the amenities of much larger cities.  The city slogan “Superior by Nature” is a reality - close proximity to everything (no commutes) - short drive to many lakes and wildlife areas.  Enjoying the outdoors is a big part of the Thunder Bay culture (hunting, fishing, camping, hiking, a world class marina). We also have a big city culture & entertainment scene – an auditorium visited by big-name artists of every sort as a preferred venue, a Blues Fest on the top circuit, an award-winning historical park, a professional symphony, professional theatre, 4 film festivals and numerous quality restaurants of every sort.  Add a lower cost of living (housing) and we have the formula for a balanced lifestyle.
