Description

Sprucedale Faith Chapel is a ministry of Rural Life Mission. RLM is an interdenominational mission which exists to get the "good news of the gospel" to rural areas in Ontario. Many mainline churches and other denominations have pulled out of small towns in the North over the past several years and closed churches, leaving a void of anyone to share the life-changing news that salvation through Jesus Christ brings.

Mae Waters,  founder of Rural Life Mission, started Christian outreach to  northern rural  communities in 1936. Her vision for the Lord's work was  to establish lighthouses for Jesus across the Ontario north.  In the summer of 1948 two Finnish ladies came to Sprucedale to begin a work amongst the large concentration of Finnish people in the Parry Sound area.  Through many servants of the Lord, a small church has been established in the village of Sprucedale.  It stands as a Lighthouse for Jesus, that people may be set free from darkness and come to know Him personally as their Saviour.

RLM leadership and Board of Directors is conducting interviews for the a new Head Pastor at SFC. Our current Pastor who has been serving faithfully for over 35 years has health problems and is looking to retire. The Lord has used him and his wife greatly in the community and they have been so thankful that the Lord led them there and they were able to raise family in this area.

Sprucedale sits just 20 minutes North of downtown Huntsville right in the middle of beautiful Muskoka. Although Sprucedale is only a town of 800 people Huntsville and area has been one of the fastest growing communities in Ontario in the past 5 years. SFC is a very unique local church, and the only Evangelical church for many miles around and has been a lighthouse in the community for many years. The congregation is small, with around 30-40 faithfully attending every Sunday, but there is a tremendous opportunity for growth as the area continues to expand. The facility is debt free and the offerings are enough to cover the current salary, maintenance and all other bills.

RLM is a board run Faith based Mission, but God has taken care of the needs for many years and continues to do so for the 3 Faith Missions, Mission House and Children's Bible Camp north of Thunder Bay.

We are looking to interview Pastors who want to follow the Lords leading wherever that takes them, and who wants to have a big impact in a small community......love of outdoors would help, as lots of beautiful lakes and God's nature all around.
