Steve Sparling

Senior Pastor

Steve and his wife Debbie are the founding Pastors of Family Worship & Outreach Centre. The Church began in the Spring of 2000 with a handful of people and has grown to be a self-sustaining assembly. Presently, their church meets in a new facility where they gather weekly to worship. The church has a ministry focus to the needy in Durham with outreaches to single parents and the homeless in Toronto. Prior to serving as lead Pastor, Steve has served on several Pastoral teams. Steve has also served the Pentecostal Assemblies of Canada (PAOC) as the National Youth Director in our International Office. He was also Canada’s first See You at the Pole Director, an international youth prayer movement. While at the International Office, Steve traveled across Canada speaking in many churches, camps, retreats, and school assemblies. Steve is presently serving The Eastern Ontario & Nunavut District (EOND) as the Men’s Ministry Director. Steve has a love for life and a passion to disciple all believers in the local church to impact their neighborhoods and world for Christ.
