Ministry Location: Scarborough, ON
Ministry Focus: Urban Ministry
Keith Matthias is a chef passionate about winning people for Jesus in the urban area of Scarborough, a district of Toronto. Keith is stationed at a soup kitchen in the city called “5n2”, think 5 loaves 2 fish, that works to alleviate hunger in the community, where many people struggle to meet their basic needs and are starving for spiritual nourishment. Keith has a true servant’s heart. He is gifted in community outreach and strives daily to develop relationships with both volunteers and clients through genuine Christ-filled friendship. He is on mission to reach people with the gospel who otherwise would not be seen within the walls of a church, and to see them discipled. The mission of 5n2 is to provide nourishing soups and meals to hundreds of marginalized families, children, seniors and newcomers each week. This includes training up youth and giving them valuable skills for the job market. Keith, through 5n2, meets people where they are with the love of Christ. This outpouring of love feeds 1,000 weekly at eight locations, seven days a week ... with a goal of feeding 5,000 … body and spirit!
