About Our Ministry


In January 2021, the Lord began to whisper in Carol’s ear that change was coming, and that He expected “MORE” (not less) from His church during these trying pandemic times.  Garry and Carol didn’t understand exactly what that meant at the time, or how it would play out, but they began to pray for God's guidance and clarification.

By March 2021, following a series of unexpected circumstances, it became clear that God was not only calling them to start a new ministry, but for it to be located specifically in the area of Merritton, which is a community within St. Catharines, Ontario.

It has been a fulfilling journey as God drew many to Haven of Hope who were seeking for meaning in life, hurting from past disappointments, and/or troubled in various other ways.  We have seen people come to know God in a personal way for the very first time in their lives, and others return to their relationship with Him after being away for a time. Multiple healings have taken place - physical, emotional and psychological - through the life-changing programs offered. To God be ALL the glory for all that has taken place.  May this ministry forever hold to its name and be the Haven of Hope that so many people need.


To see how we are doing MORE in 2024 

We Believe. . .

  • The Bible is the authoritative Word of God.

  • There is one God, eternally existent in three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

  • In the deity and humanity of our Lord Jesus Christ; in His virgin birth; in His sinless life; in His miracles; in His
    atoning death on the cross; in His bodily resurrection; in His ascension to Heaven; and in His soon return to take His believers home to Heaven.

  • That faith in the above description of Jesus Christ is absolutely essential for any human to enter Heaven.

  • That the Holy Spirit is at work today, just as He has been since God sent Him to earth after Jesus' ascension.
