Pastoral Staff

Pastor Paul and Wanna Koo

Senior Pastor /ext. 2111

In 2003, Pastor Paul Koo obeyed the call of God to leave his successful career in the telecom industry to serve full time as the Senior Pastor of Willowdale Community Christian Assembly, the church he and his family planted in 2000.

Apart from leading a thriving church in the city, Pastor Paul has also been a frequent talk show host both at a local Christian radio station and at Canada’s largest Christian national television network, CTS. Pastor Paul also serves as a board member in several para-church organizations including Joel Osteen Ministries.

The heart cry of Pastor Paul’s ministry is for the unprecedented “national” revival and spiritual awakening of our nation of Canada. The focus of his ministry is the relentless pursuit of the supernatural through prayer and faith in the Word of God. Pastor Paul, his wife Wanna, and their children, Kristen and Matthew, reside in Toronto.
