Hello! Thanks for stopping by.
Springvale is a welcoming, family-friendly church located in York Region, Ontario committed to joining with God in his mission to create passionate followers of Jesus. This means people who understand themselves to be on God's journey and excited about taking their next step.
"If you want to be powerful salt and bright light in York Region; if you want to truly be a redemptive presence – then teach your family to treat one another and everyone around them with compassion regardless of their brokenness."
- Ed Fontaine
Here at Springvale we believe that the best way to become passionate followers of Jesus is in the context of families who care for one another and become a redemptive presence in the community around them. This is why nurturing Christ-centred families is the heart of what we do.
The Six essentials
Life with Jesus is dynamic, not static. It involves action and progression (and sometimes regression). Every healthy living thing goes through seasons of change and growth. It's the same with our faith. You can't follow Jesus and stay where you are. This is why we believe that there are six journey essentials that every passionate follower of Jesus should be engaged in.
(1) Going on mission
(2) Sharing in community
(3) Living as worship
(4) Listening to God's word
(5) Partnering by prayer
(6) Loving through service
Each one is important which is why we want to help people grow in all six. All of our programs, gatherings, and ministry initiatives are designed with these essentials at their core. Here at Springvale we want to explore what it really means to follow Jesus together.
