Cell Groups Vital to Church Plant Growth

When North Victory Baptist Church had a vision for a church plant, they looked to the growing city of Vaughn and its potential for ministry. There they planted Maple Baptist Church in 2013, and now this church plant has a vibrant ministry with 120–130 people worshipping together each week.
MBC initially rented space in a community centre, but since moving into a school in a residential area of North York they have been able to minister to those living nearby. They continue to see new faces each week as people from their community come to the church.
Cell Groups have been an essential part of growth and vitality. Pastor Nars Tuyandang finds that inviting people into homes for Bible study and fellowship is an effective way to win souls for Christ.
Though they are a newer church, MBC is very missions-minded. When some of their congregation moved to Guelph for work, a team from MBC travelled to visit them. Once there, MBC saw the need for a regular Bible study, which then flourished into a church plant of its own!
Maple Baptist Church asks that you pray for them as they search for a permanent building. This is their hope for 2018, and they are so thankful that you will join them in prayer for this.
