Meet Todd Cantelon
Hi, and welcome to Grace! My name is Todd and I’m the Lead Pastor here.
I’ve been happily married to Niki for more than 20 years, and a father to four great kids, I get up every morning thinking about how to help as many people as possible to taste and see that the Lord is good.
First and foremost I’m a Preacher/Strategist, I have a passion for simplicity and focus, and an abiding love of seeing the presence of God tangibly at work in church. If you asked me what my life is about i’d say, "Loving Jesus, my wife and kids, and preaching so hard it's as if I'm going to meet Jesus every Sunday...". In addition to my work at GCC, i’m an author, football coach, avid sailor, and occasional narrator in film and television.
It’s a thrill for me to work with a team of eight brilliant leaders. Our staff is focused on building a community of faith here in the city of Guelph that brings God much glory and you much joy. Ultimately, Jesus’ story transforms lives and it is our honour to lead you in learning about that story. Take a moment to get to know our team by clicking on their photos below. I hope to meet you in-person very soon!

WHAT TO EXPECT
Whether you’re visiting Grace for the first time or have been attending for a while; it’s our hope that, while you’re here, you will experience a reminder, or maybe realize for the first time, that God is alive and that He’s involved in your life.
No matter how big or small a church is, there’s always a need to connect in a more casual group context than a Sunday Morning Worship Service.
We provide Grace Kids classes at the 1st and 2nd services each Sunday. There is an elementary class for JK to Grade 5 children and a nursery for infants to pre-kindergarten.
