Born and raised in Toronto, Julian has a heart for this city. He was saved in a church in Etobicoke, called to ministry through the Grace Fellowship Church in Rexdale, and then sent to plant Grace Fellowship Church Don Mills in January 2011.
Having trained at Heritage College and Toronto Baptist Seminary, Julian has been serving in pastoral ministry since 2008.
Julian is married to Stacey and God has blessed them with four amazing daughters.
Nabil is a lay elder at Grace Fellowship Church Don Mills. He is a pharmacist by training, having earned a B.Sc. in Pharmacy from Massachusetts College of Pharmacy and a Pharm.D. from the University of Toronto. Nabil has worked in the health care industry for over 20 years and manages a health care consulting team for a large, multi-national health care company.
Nabil was born in Cairo, Egypt and was fortunate enough to be raised in a strong Christian home. His family immigrated to Canada when he was a child and he came to know Jesus as his Lord and Saviour at a young age. Throughout his life he has served in various Christian ministries, including the Board of an international missions organization and the leadership of a young adults ministry at a large Toronto-area church. As a pharmacist and a Christian, Nabil has a strong interest in counseling and is working (slowly) towards accreditation as a Biblical Counselor. He also enjoys reading, writing, travelling, and a variety of sports. Like many in Toronto, he is a long-suffering fan of the Maple Leafs, but remains an eternal optimist - in more ways than one.
The Lord has blessed Nabil with his wonderful wife Tania and two dear children - Rebekah and Matthew - who fill their life with joy and busyness. As a family, it is their earnest desire to magnify the Lord and exalt his name together (Psalm 34:3).
Nick was born in Toronto and was raised in Markham. He grew up in a Christian family where he was taught the basics of Christianity. He met his wife, Alicia, when they were about 7 years old and attending the same church. They were married in 2008 and have two wonderful children together (Judah and Elisabeth). He worships and serves as one of the pastors of Grace Fellowship Church Don Mills. He has served as one of the lead worshippers since the church’s inauguration.
Attending Humber College, he completed a diploma in Business Management; afterwards he attended Toronto Baptist Seminary & Bible College where he also completed a diploma. He continues to have a passion for learning through the reading of good books. He also loves to stay active through running.
Nick has a passion for theology and delights in seeing people know and love the God whom they serve. His desire as a pastor is to see the members of GFC behold and love their God and to become more like their Saviour as a result.
