Brendan & Sharon Witton
Pastors Brendan and Sharon Witton serve as a team in ministry and are the Lead Pastors of Toronto City Church. Pastor Brendan is passionate about reaching people with the love of God, discipleship, and mentoring and raising up leaders. His heart is to see a Jesus Awakening in Toronto that impacts this city and nations of the world.
Pastor Brendan responded to the call to ministry at a Believer’s Convention shortly after completing high school. He attended and graduated from World Harvest Bible College in Oshawa, ON. He began in ministry as the Youth Pastor at the Korean Mission Alliance Church and while serving there he sensed that God was calling him to plant a church. He obeyed and in November 2000 Church Without Limits was born. He led CWL for 13 years and then in July 2013 he answered a new call to lead Toronto City Church and merged CWL with TCC to become one united congregation.
Pastor Brendan is ordained by Open Bible Faith Fellowship. In his spare time, he enjoys travel, reading, writing, working out, basketball, soccer and spending time with his wife and kids. Pastors Brendan and Sharon have been married since 2005 and have two wonderful children named Micah and Shiloh.
Pastor Sharon serves alongside her husband as the Co-Lead Pastor of Toronto City Church. Her responsibilities include oversight of the Creative and Worship Arts Department and Women’s Ministry. As a worshipper and intercessor, Pastor Sharon’s passion is for the church body to intimately know Jesus and to find freedom in Him. Her love for the arts drives her to bring an increased level of excellence and creativity to the church and she wants to see artists and musicians equipped, mobilized and sent out to impact communities and the nations. Her hope for women is for them to know who they are as daughters of God and for them to fulfill their unique callings, by impacting and influencing their world.
Growing up in a Christian home and born into an extended family of ministers, Pastor Sharon accepted Christ at a young age and has served in various ministries throughout the years. For several years, she served as a core leader in youth ministry, has been involved in several international missions trips and has spoken at worship and women’s conferences.
Pastor Sharon graduated from the University of Ottawa with an Honours Bachelor of Arts degree in Music Education and continued her education, earning a diploma in Sound Engineering from Harris Institute of the Arts in Toronto, Ontario. In her free time, Pastor Sharon enjoys travelling, theatre, film, ballet, reading, shopping and spending time with her husband and kids.
