Spark is a community of supporters who engage with Toronto City Mission on a monthly basis. With reliance on God and through prayer, volunteering, and financial gifts, we can build a sustainable foundation to bring hope to children and families impacted by poverty.      

Be a Spark - Pray, Volunteer, Give


We rely almost entirely on the generosity of supporters like you to help with the preventative and transformational work that is done through Toronto City Mission. In Toronto, many families are living in poverty, not only physical, but more importantly spiritual poverty. We have developed programs that through God’s transformational power, enable us to build long-term relationships with children and families to share the hope we have in Christ.

Praying is foundational to a believer’s life; it sustains, protects, encourages, and leads us. It is relational rather than telling God what, when and how we want something. Prayer is becoming more intimate with God in order to understand His desires and passions for us and those we pray for.
Psalm 27:4, Matthew 6:6, Philippians 3:10

" Now devote your heart and souls to seeking the Lord your God.”
- I Chronicles 22:19


Volunteering is the action to our faith; we serve God through serving others. God has given us gifts and has called us to use these gifts to be active witnesses for His glory in service to others. Regular volunteering builds relationships that last.
Isaiah 58:10-11, James 2:14-24, 1 Peter 4:10

"As each has received a gift, use it to serve one another, as good stewards of God's varied grace”
- 1 Peter 4:10


Giving is an act of obedience to God. God expects us to give, and give cheerfully to the Church so that the Church can be generous with giving to others who need it. In return, God is faithful and we receive His blessings in abundance.
Matthew 6:1-4, 1 Corinthians 16:1-2, 2 Corinthians 9:7

"I planted the seed, Apollos watered it, but God has been making it grow."
- 1 Corinthians 3:6
