To share God’s love and enter life renewal together where we already live
The heart of Flow Without Bounds Ministries is to reach individuals, families, and communities with God’s love so we will enter life renewal together. We believe in reaching people locally through three key areas: @Home, @Play, and @Work, which is why we do not have a set office location or church building because we minister to people right in their homes and neighbourhoods. No matter what life stage, personal history, or situation you are in, we welcome everyone at Flow Ministries.
We’ll see you around?
A house church shares all the characteristics of a conventional church but is held in the comfort of a home. The informal and intimate space creates a unique atmosphere that communicates it is a safe place for people to come as they are to talk about anything in their lives.
Stream Mentoring Ministry
Stream Mentoring Ministry is for children and youths between the ages of 8 to 16. Each mentee is partnered with an adult mentor of the same gender and placed in a small group. The purpose of mentoring is to provide a good Christian model for the next generation.
Mercy Rain is Flow’s compassion ministry that seeks to tangibly share God’s love by providing assistance to neighbours as well as the community. We not only meet the needs physically but also emotionally and spiritually.
What better way to express yourself than through the art of painting? Partnering with Paintlounge, Espressions allows you to paint your heart away while enjoying live music by local artists. Whether you have painted your whole life or just recently picked up the brush, we would love to see you in our future sessions.
Ink Songwriters Group
Ink Songwriters Group is a monthly gathering for Christian songwriters. We meet on the third Saturday of each month to encourage each other in our musical gifts, collaborate with one another, and keep each other accountable in our songwriting process. Anyone is welcome to join!
The three keys to healthy living are fitness, health, and nutrition. Flow is currently working on establishing a new ministry called “Healthy Living” that focuses on ways to improve one’s overall wellness and vitality of life. Stay tuned for more details to come!
Healthy Living Team
If fitness, health, and nutrition are things you are passionate about and skilled in, we would love for you to join our healthy living team! We are looking for medical professionals (doctors, nurses, pharmacists, dentists, optometrists, you name it!) to provide accessible healthcare services to those who are underprivileged. This ministry will be launching in the near future, so stay tuned!
Stream Mentoring Ministry
Do you have a heart for pouring into the next generation? We are looking for mentors as well as mentor coaches that are born-again Christians with a heart to serve.
Currents gathers creators and appreciators of art, music, and literature for a time of meaningful discussions and sharings. This avenue not only allows Flow to encounter hundreds of young people each year but is also a great opportunity for local churches to reach out to these young people. If your church is interested in partnering with Flow’s Cafe Ministry, we would love to provide training and walk alongside your church. All your church needs is just 3 volunteers to get this started!
Be the hands and feet of Jesus! We are always looking for volunteers who are ready to tangibly touch the lives of those in need. If you enjoy hands-on ministry then this is the place for you to serve. We only ask that you keep information shared within this group confidential.
In 2016, I joined Flow Without Bounds Ministries as a House Church Pastor. My role has deepened my understanding on what it means to be missional: like Jesus in the midst of the people, bringing hope and love to the subsidized community in Markham. After graduating from Tyndale University College & Seminary with a Masters of Theological Studies, I sensed God’s call for me to serve the marginalized community. Alongside my ministry with Flow, I work with Youth Unlimited, a faith-based charity, to reach the sex workers of GTA. In addition, I volunteer with Sanctuary, a church for the homeless in downtown Toronto. I am also a certified Spiritual Director with Tyndale Spiritual Direction Association. I am married with a child. Fun fact: I used to be a dog lover, until I adopted a rescued kitten. Now my cat, Batman, is the king of the house.
@Play Ministries Leader
As the @Play Ministries leader, I work in recreational settings; more specifically, I focus on Arts ministry. I’m passionate for all things art-related, as art is uniquely capable of communicating to the imagination. I partner with different artists, musicians, and organizations around the GTA to host events, where art is used to share about ourselves and how God interacts with our lives. I graduated from Fanshawe College for Music Industry Arts, where I studied Music Production, Engineering, and Business. I’m married to my super awesome and talented wife, Carol––we make a nifty team! Fun fact: in line with artistic culture, I wear skinny jeans almost exclusively. I don’t think my legs have seen the sun for the past decade.
Stream Mentoring Ministry Coordinator
I take care of all the administrative duties involved with Stream Mentoring Ministry. I connect the child or youth mentee with his/her mentor and the mentors with their mentor coach. I also organize annual events for the mentors and mentees to bond through retreats and the community clean-up & BBQ. I recognize the impact of mentoring from personal experience and am drawn to how it is translated into the discipleship process envisioned by Flow. Outside of Stream, I am an active member of three Flow house churches. Although I do not live in the community, I enjoy the friendships I have built with the neighbours in Kin Village and Trinity Square. I graduated from Tyndale University College & Seminary with a BA in English. For leisure, I love trying new recipes in the kitchen and re-watching episodes of The Office with my husband, Eric.
Mercy Rain Volunteer Pastor
A few years ago, I took an early retirement from working in IT for about 40 years to serve in full-time ministry. I always loved to do hands-on ministry and feel very strongly that our present-day churches should serve the community in a day-to-day concrete way. I am delighted to lead Flow’s Mercy Rain ministry as it brings me great joy to live a life in Christ by meeting the needs of others tangibly. I am married to my beloved wife, Shirley, for close to 40 years and together, we have two sons, two daughters-in-law, and four grandkids. Fun Fact: being the only Chinese person I know that weighs over 200 pounds, delivering loads of groceries helped reduce my weight.
Board Member, House Church Host
I have been a part of Flow Without Bounds Ministries since its early days. Being a part of Flow has allowed me to experience and see God’s love manifested in the lives of many different people, reminding me that God not only loves me but everyone. My wife and our two daughters are also part of a house church, where our joy in ministry stems from sharing and walking alongside others in the community. Over the years, we have not only been blessed with much love but also with overwhelming encouragements from our church community. In our free time, my family enjoys watching most sports leagues: NFL, Leafs, and Raptors (although I will admit, we did have a hard time dealing with Kawhi Leonard’s leaving).
Board Member, Finance Team
My role is to take care of any finance/admin tasks so that our front-line team can keep doing what they do best. I am very thankful to be part of this organization and experience God’s blessing through serving the team.
Board Member, House Church Volunteer
I am one of the board members for Flow Without Bounds Ministry and I participate in the house church on Sunday afternoons. I also serve in Flow’s leadership team for Mercy Rain ministry. I am passionate about helping those in need, discipling fellow Christians, and making God’s love known—not only to those who do not know Him but also to those who do and encourage them to live out God’s truth. Over my years with Flow, it never ceases to amaze me as I witness how God works and transforms the lives of others. I am married to Catherine and we have two kids, Emma and Joshua. Fun fact: I enjoy watching TVB dramas, shopping with my wife, and doing personal finance.
