It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of BHM founder, Rev. Rodger Hunter. The last few weeks have shown the deep influence Rodger’s visionary ministry and caring friendship have had on many communities. Visits to the boarding homes continue weekly, where memories of Rodger are shared with both laughter and tears.

Student and decade-long team member, Madelaine Ley, is now working to assess and organize BHM as it moves into the future. If you’d like to touch base about the ministry, please contact her at: (416)832-8854 or bhmin@sympatico.ca

Founded in 1996 Boarding Homes Ministry nurtures Christian community by linking the residents of boarding homes with visitors from congregations. Regular visits are established and relationships flourish as friends share life in Christ.

“Perhaps life is all about celebrating God and people.” – Resident

“Share love so that others can carry on.” – Resident

“As I looked around the room I saw how each of these unique people was beautiful.” – Team member

We are called to live in a joyful, profound, restorative communion with God and neighbour.

But there can be people in our society who are not automatically part of our union. Such people must be received, and so the church is required to move out beyond its walls.

To help illustrate how new communions can be developed we will turn to art work commissioned for our Church School Curriculum project, Cat Jeoffry.
