Our Host Pastor

Bishop Dr. Daphne Shand

We've Come This Far By Faith

11“So Christ himself gave the apostles, the prophets, the evangelists, the pastors and teachers, 12to equip his people for works of service, so that the body of Christ may be built up 13 until we all reach unity in the faith and in the knowledge of the Son of God and become mature, attaining to the whole measure of the fullness of Christ.” Ephesians 4:11-13

When Bishop Dr. Daphne E. Shand, preached her first sermon in January, 2004, she held in her heart a dream of Power of Love Ministry one day growing into a large, loving church family committed to living and loving one another as Jesus commanded.

Years later, her dream has been fulfilled and the ministry continues to expand.

To date, Bishop Dr. Daphne E. Shand has baptized over 36 new Christians, presided over 107 weddings, officiated 29 funerals, and performed many baby dedications, along with numerous house/ vehicle blessings. She has also coached and guided many of her flock towards pursuing higher levels of education; Power of Love has since produced a number of graduates in the fields of Theology and Counselling.

Known for her kindness, her unshakeable faith and powerful prayer,  – and her incredible cooking – Bishop Shand leads her flock with the protective nurturing of a mother’s love.

Since dedicating her life to Jesus in a promise made after being delivered from a serious illness, Bishop Shand has been committed to fulfilling her mission: spreading the good news of a powerful, faithful God.  When she is not inspiring her congregation from the pulpit, she can often be found sharing the Gospel with her brothers and sisters in churches throughout Canada, the US and the Caribbean. 

Her sermons will leave you uplifted and comforted; join us this Sunday at Power of Love to experience them for yourself. Check your worries and fears at the door, and step into the Lord’s House, where you’ll be welcomed with open arms. We promise you’ll never be the same.
