On a Spiritual Journey
On January 27, 1979, a group of 35 Seventh-day Adventists formed a company at Yorkgate Community Centre. They were drawn from the Willowdale, Perth, Toronto West and Kingsview Village Seventh-day Adventist Churches. These faith-filled believers called themselves the Downsview Seventh-day Adventist Church and started their spiritual journey.
We were led by many pastors and met a various places of worship. Our pastors were:
- Dr. Andrew King (Current)
- Pr. Ledford Morris
- Dr. Ken Campbell
- Pr. Frankie Lazurus
- Pr. Eustace Henry
- Dr. Steve Cassimy
- Pr. Cyril Newman
- Pr. Bob Sparenberg
God was always leading our congregation. In 1994 He sent Pastor Ken Campbell. Pastor Campbell joined forces with our flock and helped us to realize our dream of having our own place of worship. In less than two years, Downsview Church was led to 37 Bakersfield where we became one of the first Adventist churches to launch tent meetings in Ontario in recent times. To God be the glory.
Another major project that we undertook was to build a new church building on the property of 37 Bakersfield. After many years of planning, and saving, this dream was accomplished.
The Downsview church, which was organized on March 31, 1979 is happy to have its own pastor, Robert Sparenberg. We extend a warm welcome to
