Website Vaughan Community Church

You have been called to ministry. And the questions you might be asking now are: who are the people you have been called to serve and what form does your ministry take?

We find ourselves asking similar questions at Vaughan Community Church (VCC). As Christians, we know that we are called to be disciples of Christ, but we often wonder how we live this out in the time and places we find ourselves in. What does it look like for the young, emerging adult grappling with freedom of choice and expression? How has it changed and shifted for those that find a newly empty nest? What thread is God weaving amongst these groups, and everyone in between, that binds us into a loving community?

If you have a passion to unfold and discover what this means with a team of pastors and a congregation eager to learn, grow, and live out the gospel truth, VCC might be where God wants to place you.
