Youth Ministry Pastor
Youth Ministry Pastor
Scarborough, Ontario , M1V 4V8
Scarborough Community Alliance Church (SCommAC) is an English speaking church based in Scarborough. We are one congregation under Christ with many worshipers from a Chinese heritage. We are evolving into a multi-ethnic and multi-generational diverse body of believers. The predominant group would be 2nd and 3rd generation Chinese and together with the whole church, we warmly welcome people from all cultures. We originated from the Scarborough Chinese Alliance Church under a dual-building church growth strategy where one building targeted the Chinese speaking while the other building targeted the English speaking. Thus, there are 2 church buildings side-by-side and each are now fully independent and autonomous on their own property. We are a Bible believing, God-honoring church under the headship of Jesus Christ.
We currently have an average attendance of 200 (140-145 adults, 25-30 youth, 25-30 children)
