Our Pastor


John Bell is the founding pastor of New City Baptist Church. He’s been married to his lovely wife, Jill, for 5 years.

Originally from the Thousand Islands, John graduated from Toronto Baptist Seminary and Bible College.  John has an active ministry in Toronto's gay community and has written about it as a guest-blogger for Challies.com.

An avid reader, John is also a film buff. When not indulging in procrastination, he’s trying to write a screenplay. We may yet see his name in lights!

New City, as a church plant, is under the authority of the elders at Grace Fellowship Church of Toronto, until God such time as God raises up a plurality of local, qualified men at New City.
