Steve, Kathy, Corrie, Lily, and Owen
Steve Kim was born and raised in Toronto. The Lord saved him in 2010 while he was listening to a missionary preach on the Sermon on the Mount. He began attending Grace Fellowship Church of West Toronto that same year and was baptized. In 2011, he left with 18 others to plant Grace Fellowship Church Don Mills on the east side of the city. There, he met his wife, Kathy, and the Lord has since blessed them with two daughters, Corrie and Lily, and a son, Owen.
After completing a one-year pastoral internship at the church plant, Steve returned to Grace Fellowship Church of West Toronto in October 2015 to serve as the Associate Pastor. After more than seven years of ministry there, he accepted the call to be the Senior Pastor of Eastwood Baptist Church.
Steve is currently enrolled at Heritage Seminary in the Masters of Divinity program. His desire is to preach the Bible and proclaim Christ in all of His beauty so that the lost may be saved and the saints may find their souls happy in the Lord.
When he isn’t spending time with his family or serving his church, you will likely find him fishing for walleye on Lake Erie.
Rita is the Church Office Administrator, a Jesus follower grateful for the opportunity to work alongside her brothers and sisters in Christ. Rita is married to Kory and they have 3 beautiful children together.
Eastwood has been Rita’s home church since 2006. Her desire is to see the church grow and flourish in the truth of God’s Word and to be faithful in serving the Lord as His bride.
One of her favorite passages is Proverbs 3:5-6 ESV “Trust in the LORD with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make straight your paths”.
