led by John Luo + Lucy Liu in Scarborough, ON
John and Lucy feel that God is bringing a growing number of Chinese youth, international students, young single adults, and young married couples into their lives. A common feeling they share with John and Lucy is a sense of dissatisfaction with their lives and self-centredness. These young people often feel they only have digital friends and many feel lost and lonely. They are unsure of their futures, and are turning to John and Lucy not only for relationship but to see whether there is more to life.
As God is bringing these people into their circle of influence, God is also birthing in John and Lucy a vision to more effectively walk alongside these people. Lucy writes, “Many of these youth and young adults are like Abraham and Sarah in the Bible. God chose them, and then grew their faith in him over time. They had a long way to go from the beginning of their journey until the end. This is just like the people we are connecting with. They have a desire for God; they are eager to learn. God has begun a good work in them that he will bring to completion over time. We desire to go and make disciples of Jesus with this growing numbers of people.”
This New Venture will be a small group church plant with weekly small groups in different locations in the Greater Toronto Area. In these small groups settings, John and Lucy plan to share life in Jesus together through conversation, Bible study and friendship.

Meet John and Lucy
John and Lucy have grown as leaders as a part of First Alliance Church Toronto (FAC) and are uniquely connected to FAC's approach to discipleship while having been grounded in the Chinese community for 10+ years. John finished his Master of Divinity at Tyndale in 2018. They have been passionately involved in preaching and teaching, small groups, Sunday School, worship teams and children’s ministry. Shaped and mentored within the Chinese community, they feel called into God's mission, potentially overseas in the long run.
