STEVE TOOMBS

Pastor of Worship

stoombs@rbclondon.ca

I serve as Pastor of Worship giving leadership to our music and production teams. My wife Jody and I were married in the summer of 2000 and are so thankful for the 3 young boys we have been entrusted with.

 

I was hired by the church (known as SouthWest Community Church at the time) in the summer of 2002 serving as youth pastor and volunteering in the worship department. In 2006, SouthWest became Harvest Bible Chapel London and the elders transitioned my role from youth ministry to pastor of worship ministry.

 

By God’s grace I was born into a family that loves and serves the Lord. I am blessed to have a Pastor Dad and a Teacher Mom who have modelled passion and love for the Saviour and His church all their lives.

 

I was born on the Manitoulin Island where my parents were serving as missionaries. With short stops in Sudbury, Whitby and Windsor my family landed in London during the summer of 1992. After completing High School at London Central SS, I graduated with a Bachelor of Religious Education from Heritage College and Seminary.

 

Through-out the 90’s I had the opportunity to serve the Lord with a fantastic group of musicians. We travelled around Ontario, with a stop in Ireland, sharing the gospel, recording a few albums and leading people in worship. It was during this time that Lord grew in me a passion to see local churches awaken in worship.

 

There is no greater joy then lifting up the name of Jesus in song. Praying that the Lord would bring a great revival to His church. Psalm 103: Bless the Lord, Oh my Soul and all that is within me…Bless His Holy Name.
