Pastor A. Castro
If you’re looking for a minister that cares about people, has a true relationship with his God, and respects the Word of God enough to handle it carefully; then you will find such a leader in our Senior Pastor, Audley Castro.
Through the calling God has placed on their lives, the Castro’s have effectively grown the church to be a vibrant centre of worship in the City of Pickering. He and his wife Karen and their daughters, Rhea and Aarien have resided in Pickering since launching the church, and recognize how important it is to live in and with the community they serve.
Pastor Castro began his journey in church ministry when he emigrated from Jamaica to Oshawa, Ontario in 1986 to pursue Theological Studies at the Apostolic Missionary Institute (AMI). His love of the Bible and his diligent study habits earned him the honour of graduating as valedictorian of his class in 1989.
During his years of study, he served as assistant to several pastors and churches, and upon graduating, he transitioned from student to professor and taught at his alma mater for the next five years. He also simultaneously served as the assistant pastor of Grace Life Center in Scarborough. In the fall of 1993, Pastor Castro answered God’s call to pioneer an outreach work in the City of Pickering.
In his spare time, Pastor Castro enjoys fishing.
