For many people, Christianity is a cultural experience. They go to church on Sunday. However, sometimes this leads to a disconnect in their everyday lives. Through The Monday Christian website, we want to change this. Our mission is to help followers of Jesus take the belief about God that they have on Sunday and put it into action in their everyday lives on Monday.
About the Author
Hi there! I’m so glad you have taken a few minutes to check out this site! Real quick, let me just tell you a bit about myself. I was born in Montreal (Yes, I am a diehard Canadiens fan) and raised around eight hours north of Toronto, Ontario in a small town called Cochrane (pretty much in the middle of nowhere!). At 15 years of age, I moved to the Cincinnati, Ohio and remained there till I received a BA in Ministerial Studies from God’s Bible School and College and then went on to complete my Master’s Degree in Practical Theology from Ohio Christian University.
It was during my teen years that I picked up a copy of a book entitled Fresh Wind, Fresh Fire by Jim Cymbala. It was a life-changing moment for me! This book placed in my heart a desire to impact the lives of people who did not know Jesus. More specifically, I began to sense a tug from God to move to the city of Toronto. I got to thinking, what could happen if I committed the rest of my life to doing whatever it was God wanted me to do? This thought led to a decision. One night I remember saying in my prayers, “God, if you will keep this passion to move to Toronto and plant churches alive in my heart, I will follow your calling wherever it takes me.”
In May of 2011, after I graduated college, I took my first pastoral position as an associate at Eastlake Community Church in Moneta Virginia. On June 22, 2012, I married Janan Hunt. Get this, she is from the North Pole…literally…North Pole, Alaska. She loves children and has taught grades 6-8 for five years. It is her dream to one day provide a place of shelter and training for children who have suffered abuse. I could not be blessed with anyone more awesome! On June 8th, 2017 we were blessed with our newest addition to the family, Zoey Jane. She is an incredible bundle of joy! For those of our friends who always said, “Just wait…being a parent changes you!” I can now say you were definitely right!
In the fall of 2014, Janan and I packed up our belongings and moved to East Scarborough Ontario where we began the process of meeting people and launching Discovery Pointe Church. The journey has truly been extraordinary. We love our community and the people God has blessed us to be a part of in our congregation. I have a passion for helping people get to know Jesus and taking them deeper spiritually. I also love to write and have authored two books: What’s the Pointe? and What Kind of God Do I Serve? It was out of this passion that the genesis for this site came about. Having people at our church facility on Sunday is important to me. But equally as important is seeing that the truths of God’s Word that they hear on Sunday are implemented into their everyday lives on Monday. There are too many what I call “Cultural Christians.” People who attend a place of worship on the weekend but are seeing little fruits of that faith show up in their lives Monday through Friday.
Through this site, I want to tackle the nitty-gritty questions everyday Christians face. I also want to feature the stories of believers who are modeling what it means to put their faith into action. Hopefully, it is of help to you! 🙂 Well, I guess that’s about it! I hope you enjoy the content and resources on this site and feel free to contact me below! I can’t wait to hear about how God is working in your life! Ezra
