About Us

Welcome to Willowdale Life, a place we hope you will discover the incredible joy and fulfilment in living life the way God intended: to the FULLEST. One of the keys to living life to the fullest is rest. Whether this is your first time visiting us or the 100th time, you will come to know the incredible power of rest in Jesus! In His rest, we've discovered incredible insights, open doors, healings, relationships restored and supernatural provisions. I have written a book called "Contending For Rest."

If you are in the Toronto area, we'd like to give you a free copy of this book when you come and visit us at our Sunday worship gathering. You can also purchase one at Amazon. If you are an Amazon Kindle Unlimited member, you get to read it for free! If you are currently looking for an in-person worship experience at a church but would like to find out more about this church first, you can follow us on Instagram, Twitter, Facebook or TikTok @willowdalelife. You can also watch all our sermons online at willowdale.tv. We look forward to meeting you soon. 


Be In His Rest,

Pastor Paul & Wanna

A little bit of history... 

Many years ago (think 1999), Pastor Paul and Wanna had an incredible desire and ambitious dream to follow the leading of the Holy Spirit to plant a new church in the Greater Toronto Area. As it turns out, their story of church planting has developed into much more than they could have ever hoped for or dared to dream; all because our God is good and faithful. After a period of preparation in prayer, learning music and doing life together, Willowdale held its first service in April 2000 in a hotel conference room. Everyone involved was filled with excitement as to what God was going to do. We were young(er) and inexperienced in planting a church but when God is for you, really, who can be against you? As the church grew in numbers, God led us to other physical locations to minister in the community.  Currently, we are excited as ever to call Senator O'Connor College School (60 Rowena Drive) our home every Sunday.
