Malkutha (Toronto, Ontario, Canada)

Jump to navigation Jump to search

Malkutha (Aramaic for Kingdom) began as an early participant in the MoveIn outreach program sponsored by the Mennonite Brethren, Vision Ministries and the Associated Gospel Church.

MoveIn's founder, Nigel Paul, sought teams of young adult Christians who would move in to high-needs neighborhood "patches" in Toronto among the unreached, urban poor. The "patches" usually included apartment complexes with high populations of individuals coming from ethnic and low-income backgrounds. Those who have "moved in" living into these communities, eat, pray, serve, and dig into scripture together, though Bible studies and prayer services. They have generally been supported by employment in regular jobs.

Malkutha has been a deliberate effort to create a Mennonite Brethren congregation in its area of Toronto in complex of four high rise apartment buildings with 6,000 residents, including many new immigrants.
