Marcos Falcon – The Extra Mile Toronto – Canada
Dear brothers and sisters.
I pray that you will open your spiritual ears to listen to what the Holy Spirit is saying to His church nowadays. “Revelation 2.7, 11, 17, 29″
Why Supporting Churches are so important in Church Planting?
we have seen over the years that if a church launches without strong supporting churches, it will struggle to survive in the long term.
Pray Participate Provide
How can you become our Prayer Partner?
In Church Planting, Prayer is the Backbone of everything.
The Extra Mile Baptist Church is located on 36 Margueretta Street in Downtown Toronto, a very busy and diverse neighbourhood.
Our prayer strategy is to walk around the neighbourhood and to pray for the houses, apartment buildings, schools, and business in our area, asking the Lord to touch their hearts and for Him to prepare the field to receive the seed of the Gospel of salvation in Jesus.
How can your Church join us in Prayer?
With today’s technology, you can prayer walk with us on a ‘Virtual Prayer Walk’ by using Google Street view. You can do it in your house, office, and church.
The Extra Mile Baptist Church is located on 36 Margueretta Street in Downtown Toronto.
With Google Street view, you can virtually walk around and pray for streets, homes, schools, and business in our area.
You and your church can adopt our neighbourhood (Little Portugal), one street (St Clarens Ave), or a single home in a given street, and pray for them.
Skype – We can arrange a time to pray together using Skype. Please add me in your contact list: falcao.londres
If the Partner Church and members wish, we can send a monthly updated list of prayer requests via e-mail.
When God touches your heart, you are more than welcome to come and physically do a Prayer Walk in the area the Lord called us to plant a new Southern Baptist Church.

How can You Provide for Us while We Plant a New Church in Toronto?
Toronto is one of the world’s expensive cities to live, and we need support in two areas: Planter’s Living Expenses, and Church Activities.

To Plant a Church in Toronto we need $3.000 dollars per month. $2.000 (Monthly) to rent a Place of Worship (School, library, or a Church) to meet on Sundays. During the week, we will meet at Home Groups. $1.000 (Monthly) for outreach, print and distribute tracts, mailing, website, and stationery.
Unrepeatable expenses: $6.000 for a Mobile Sound System (To set-up and set-down every Sunday). $1.500 for a High Definition Projector and Screen. (Set-up and set-down every Sunday).
