Lazarus Rising is making an administrative transition. As of January 1, 2017, Lazarus Rising has turned over its administration to Sanctuary Ministries and the Lazarus Rising Street Pastor will be an employee of Sanctuary Ministries.

Lazarus Rising has been a partnership between Toronto area Mennonite and Brethren in Christ churches, MCCO and Sanctuary Ministries, a downtown Toronto community and church seeking to build connections among people on the margins of society and people in the mainstream. The Lazarus Rising Steering Committee has raised funds to support a Street Pastor who served as an MCCO employee working as part of the Sanctuary team.

MCCO has been blessed to be a partner in Lazarus Rising. We express our gratitude to the individuals who formed Lazarus Rising, the Street Pastors, the churches and individuals who continue to support Lazarus Rising and Sanctuary Ministries.

MCCO will provide financial support for the Lazarus Rising Street Pastor on the Sanctuary Ministries team. We invite you to join us in supporting the Lazarus Rising Street Pastor and the Sanctuary Community through prayers and financial support.
