Heaven Scent Community Fellowship
Mid-West Region – Westdale
About the family
I am Pastor Renato S. Villavicencio, a church planter of the Canadian National Baptist Convention (CNBC). My wife is Yoli, and we have four children. Marc Neil (29) and Lois Ruth (26) live in the Philippines. Keziah Myrl (20) and Stephen Paul (13) live in Mississauga, Ontario, with us. We are praying that our son and daughter in the Philippines can soon be with us as we minister here in Mississauga.
At present (February 2015), my daughter and I have been in Canada for one year, while my wife and my son just arrived end of July 2014. We are still adjusting. My wife is not yet working because she oversees our children’s schooling and helps me in the ministry. We thank the Lord for giving us the opportunity to serve Him here. Our prayer is that we could be used mightily and that the work entrusted to us will grow.
“As for me and my house, we will serve the Lord” (Joshua 24:15). TO GOD BE THE GLORY!
About the Church Plant
Heaven Sent Community Fellowship started its ministry in July 2014 and is located in Heaven Sent Café, which is in Westdale Mall. It is a multicultural church. We have our prayer meeting every Wednesday at 7:30 p.m. and worship service every Sunday at 11:00 a.m. Our ministry includes distributing gospel tracts inside and outside the mall. We also do evangelism, prayer and counseling in Heaven Sent Café.
At present, our attendance in the worship service ranges between 20–25. We have been blessed with people who truly love the Lord and who have a heart for the ministry.
Our mission is to make disciples of all nations, based on Matthew 28:18-20, while our vision is to see churches planted.
– That our church will grow in quality and in quantity.
– That we may be able to carry out our mission and vision.
– That the Lord will continue to give us wisdom and strength as we lead the church.
