About Gospel North

Gospel North is an organization dedicated to bringing the good news of Jesus Christ to people across Southern Ontario through regular speaker evenings. Our goal is to reach out to those both outside and inside the church who do not know Jesus Christ, and to increase appreciation for the gospel message among those who do.

Through our partnership with Come Over and Help, we also support pastors in Eastern Europe and the former USSR.

We subscribe to the Westminster Standards and the Three Forms of Unity.
