Our Team

I'm thankful that I lead with friends that work alongside me in impacting our communities in the St Lawrence, Canary and surrounding high-rise communities. We love the people in downtown Toronto and together we lean on each other to do all that God would ask us to accomplish. Nothing beats the inner city of Toronto where everyday is another adventure. BTW, we are here to serve you too ... let's partner together in writing a great story for God in downtown Toronto. Cheers, Pastor Ted

  • LeaD Pastor

    Pastor Ted started at CITC in the summer of 2013 with a commission to revitalize the church in Toronto's downtown core. He also led the re-planting of a church in Regent Park (Church in Regent Park) and is now leading the church through a satellite plant in the Canary District. His passion has always been to be actively involved in the community and on most days you will find the door of the church propped open.

Our History

CITC began in September 1985 through the vision of Stone Church in partnership with the Pentecostal Assemblies of Canada (PAOC). CITC started on the west side of Yonge St but soon moved across the street when a better rental came available. Near the end of the 90's the congregation looked for alternative locations and landed in the St. Lawrence community renting from St. Michael's Catholic School. Around 2003 the congregation moved to a more permanent place in our current location in the David B. Archer Co-operative. God has used this church to impact many lives! Donald Miller in his book, 'A Million Miles in a Thousand Years', wrote, 'Everyone is writing a story, so go write a good story for God.' This is our legacy, now we want to add more chapters to the story.
