Ray David is the parish rector of St. George’s Anglican Church. Passionate about seeing people come to faith in Christ and grow to be more like Jesus and less like the world around them, RD focuses his work at St. George’s on the Great Commission, leadership development, and church planting.
Beyond St. George’s he serves on the board of directors for the Anglican Network in Canada. Traveling regularly to resource and develop new missional congregations, he is chairman of Anglican church planting in Canada and a leader in the Anglican 1000 movement.
His son is the great love of his life. Traditional karate, hockey, racing his motorcycles and reading a good book are close runners-up.

Bryan is the Worship and Media Pastor. He has a passion for leading people in praise of Jesus and seeing people move into closer communion with God the Father.

He continues to write music to glorify the Creator God and to awaken the church. He also loves the Toronto Maple Leafs, and avidly believes they will win the Stanley Cup in his lifetime (clearly he is a man of faith).
