The Apostolic Church in Canada
Our Canadian story began in 1927 when Robert Caldwell of Gaspereau, Nova Scotia attended an Apostolic church in Philadelphia while living there for a short period. Upon returning to Nova Scotia, he told others of the church that he had attended and subsequently an invitation was extended to Pastor Joseph Larkins of Philadelphia to visit Gaspereau to minister.
The first Apostolic Church in Canada was established in the home of Fred and Edna Jordan with nineteen members welcomed into the church under the direction of Verge Card as the first overseer. The following year a church building was built on Gaspereau Mountain and opened on June 10, 1928. Verge Card was called into ministry on June 22 to become the first Canadian pastor of The Apostolic Church in Canada.
Since that time multiple churches have been planted throughout Canada under the banner of The Apostolic Church in Canada.
