Ezra was born and raised around eight hours north of Toronto, Ontario in a small town called Cochrane. At 15 years of age he moved to the Cincinnati, Ohio and remained there till he received a BA in Ministerial Studies from God's Bible School and College and is completing his Masters Degree in Practical Theology from Ohio Christian University in the spring of 2017. It was during his teen years that he picked up a copy of a book entitled Fresh Wind, Fresh Fire by Jim Cymbala. This book placed within him a desire to reach those who did not know Jesus. More specifically, God began putting on his heart a burden for the people of Toronto. In May of 2011, Ezra graduated college and took his first pastoral position as an associate pastor at Eastlake Community Church in Moneta Virginia. On June 22, 2012 Ezra married his lovely wife Janan in North Pole, Alaska. Janan loves children and currently teaches Grade 6 at Whitefield Christian School in Scarborough. It is her dream to one day provide a place of shelter and training for children who have suffered abuse. Ezra has a passion for reaching people with the gospel and taking them deeper spiritually. He is the founder of Powerline Kingdom Ministries, and is the author of two books: What's the Pointe? and What Kind of God Do I Serve? He enjoys blogging along with podcasting and is passionate about helping people to live out the principles of Jesus in the midst of their busy weekly schedules. Both Ezra and Janan could not be more excited about what God is doing in East Scarborough and believe that God is in the process of raising up a new generation of Christians in Toronto who are looking to make a tremendous impact on the culture in which we live!
