Welcome! I’m Daniel Ventura, and I have the privilege of serving as pastor of Living Hope Reformed Church. My family and I moved to Canada from San Diego, California in 2015 after finishing my studies at Westminster Seminary California. People will often ask my wife and I, “Why did you move here from California? You know we actually have a winter here, right?” Well, we decided to move because there is a community of faith here that hungers to know Jesus Christ more, and wants to share his message of reconciliation and peace with the world.
This is the reason Living Hope exists—to worship God as a community of believers and share the life-giving gospel of Jesus Christ. In a world that is filled with so much brokenness and despair, Living Hope exists to share with the communities of Waterdown and Burlington the true and lasting comfort founded in our Saviour. You may not find many bells and whistles in our small church (our worship is quite simple!), but you will hear about who Christ is, who we are in relation to him, and why and how we are to live in the light of his saving beauty every Sunday as we open God’s Word from Genesis to Revelation.
Perhaps you’ve stumbled on our page when searching for a “Reformed” or “Christian” church. Maybe you’re new to the area and are looking for a church that can help you understand the Bible better. Maybe you don’t even know how you got here, but have found yourself curiously searching through our page. Whatever the reason, I’m glad you’re here! Please continue to search around to learn about us. But if you really want to understand what Living Hope is all about, stop in for a service at 9:30 a.m. or 4:00 p.m. We’d love to hear your story and have you come worship with us.
God’s Richest Blessings,
