How Christian Murengera became a Pastor for CrossPointe Fellowship Toronto


Toronto News, September 15, 2014

Christian Murengera was originally from Burundi, Africa. He immigrated to Canada because of political problems he endured back home and the education opportunities to be found in Canada. Since 2001, he has lived in Canada.

“In as much that I have been doing,” Murengera told me in Starbucks downtown Toronto, “I have been involved in church since 1998.” This thirty- five year old pastor became born again in 1996. He was raised catholic but felt the personal need of relation with God.  “So I am here twelve years.” He finds people back home are hungrier for God then in North America.  There is less distraction in Africa then here.

“There are opportunities here but we tend to pursue what we want, instead of what we need.” Christian Murengera graduated from York University in 2010 and attained a Bachelor in Economics and International Studies. He was associate pastor at Living Word Church, which was based in North York. He now runs a multicultural ministry, where he oversees people from Europe, Africa, Caribbean Islands, and other nationalities.

CrossPointe Fellowship is part of a network of churches called CrossPointe International and its ministries are based in Calgary, Alberta. They have regular workshop services, youth programmes, children programmes, and events for couples. They are in the process of establishing a community center, which will be called Crossepoint Empowerment Center.

“We’re looking to bring the community to be empowered and reach their God given potential and that is the mission statement,” he said with affirmation. Crossepoint Empowerment Center aims to be a point of reference for the City of Toronto in transforming this community, as well as a mission center to reach out to the world of Christ.

“Beyond the mask we carry in North America what seems to be self-sufficiency and economic stability is only a covering that hides the genuine need of a relationship with God and people,” he told me, quietly.

“Our goal is to break the mask and bring the person to be made whole and fulfilled.”
