Our Leadership

Gladis Andrews

Elder, Chair

Gladis is a native of Southern India (in the city of Chennai/Madras) and moved to Peterborough to pursue graduate studies, where she received an MBA. As a new immigrant to Canada it was hard for her to find the right church initially, but she found her home church at Park St Baptist Church. There, she was involved in the worship team, bible studies, and other activities, but in 2015, Gladis moved to Toronto for work and was connected to Renforth by Park St, with whom she still maintains close relationships. Since then, Gladis has been actively involved at Renforth, serving on the worship team, nursery ministry, small groups, engaging in bible studies, and on the elder team. She is also involved in CBOQ’s Credential Committee and nominated to be a part of CBWOQ’s Uptick Program.
Gladis currently lives in Etobicoke and works at Intact Financial Corporation (BrokerLink) in human resources. In her role, she oversees recruitment for Ontario, Alberta, and the Atlantic provinces, employee relations, and training. During her spare time, she enjoys singing and listening to new worship songs.
If you’d like to get in touch with her, please email office@renforth.ca and we’ll get you connected.

Evol Wiens

Elder

Evol was born in Trinidad and moved to the GTA at a young age. She has worked as a Personal Support Worker and Social Worker for many years, until she retired a few years ago to take care of her late husband and to focus on serving at Renforth. She has been at Renforth since the mid-1990s and has been involved in various ministries throughout the years. Renforth is the place where she recommitted her life back to God, so it has a special place in her heart. She is passionate about her church and is excited about how God is working through the people here. Her desire for Renforth is that it would flourish and be a beacon of light in this community.
Her hobbies include music and singing, painting, designing, and anything that involves being creative. She also enjoys hanging out with her spunky granddaughter during the week.

Olurotimi Afolabi-Daniels

served as an elder in his local church in Nigeria for a period of fifteen years where he
functioned in different capacities as a member of the School Management Board, the
Church Secretary, Choir Commissioner, and the Lay Reader. Rotimi loves to serve in the
household of God and was reputed to have been retained as a serving elder even after his relocation from Nigeria; thanks to technology.
Rotimi worked with Amazon Canada for a year and a half before resigning his
appointment to pursue a Diploma program in Supply Chain Management from CDI
College, Toronto to enable him gain considerable knowledge of Canada logistics and
transportation industry.
Rotimi is married to his beautiful wife, Mary and they are both blessed with three lovely
children – Elizabeth, Daniels and David.

Steven Chung

Pastor

Steven was born and raised at the border of North York and Scarborough. How would he describe himself? “I have no highly esteemed stature to stand on. I am no better than you (I’m probably worse than you, haha).” Steven comes from a family that did not have much growing up, but had enough. God has been gracious to him in his pastoral call and Steven seeks to share this grace with Etobicoke. “Come, I would love to meet and speak with you.”
