Toronto is one of Canada’s most diverse cities. Overall, only about 4 percent of the population identify as evangelical, and there are significant populations who identify as Muslim, Jewish, or Buddhist.
For a city just on the other side of the United States’ northern border, one may not expect there to be a significant Hispanic population. Yet, the number of Hispanics has reached nearly one hundred thousand in recent years.
Until J. D. and Andreina Fasolino planted their church, there had only been two Hispanic Canadian National Baptist churches in the entire province. The Fasolinos have made a concerted effort to reach Hispanics by reaching out to migrant farmers and business owners. Now there are between twelve and fifteen nationalities represented in their church.
THE COOPERATIVE PROGRAM is the financial fuel for reaching every person for Jesus Christ in every town, every city, every state, and every nation. Your support through the Cooperative Program allows missionaries like the Fasolinos to reach and plant churches for specific people groups throughout North America and the world.
PRAY for the Fasolinos as they continue to facilitate a movement of new church starts in the city of Toronto and that many will come to faith in Jesus.
