My name is Matthew Lahey, father of two (soon to be three) and husband of 8 years to my beautiful wife, Ruth. My family and I moved back to Newfoundland in 2018 after spending seven years in Australia. During that season I began studying towards a Bachelor of Theology and it was during this time I felt extremely challenged about the Great Commission (Matt 28:19-20) – more so than any other moment in my fifteen years walking with the Lord. Newfoundland is my home and there are many people in this amazing province – let alone St. John’s – who neither know Christ nor understand the gift He extends to them. Sadly, Newfoundland (and Canada) are slowly turning away from Christianity.
Christianity has been on Newfoundland’s shores for the better part of 400 years and the fact that there are people who still don’t know Him doesn’t sit well with me.
I’m deeply convicted to make sure that the Light of Jesus isn’t put under a lampstand (Matt 5:15-16), rather, that His fame and renown are proclaimed in our little corner of Canada.
It is both humbling and exciting that God would provide my family and I with an opportunity to plant a church on the southern outskirts of St. John's.
May all the glory and honor be given to Him!
