UTCCF Winter Retreat 2015

Hi there! 
We are the UT Chinese Christian Fellowship.

We're a group of friends at the University of Toronto St. George Campus who are interested in pursuing Jesus Christ and learning more about Him through Bible study and fellowship.

Our Ministries

(to be updated)

Freezer

Freezer is a place where first years and those new to the fellowship can meet each other and grow together in Christ. There are weekly meetings where anything from Bible study to movie night to baking occurs. CCF is a big place but freezer is one place where first years can make friendships that will make it feel more like home.

Men's Group

Men's group is a space where the men of CCF can be real with who and where God is calling them to be, together. We will explore what it means to be a man of God biblically, personally, and in community.

Women's Group

Women’s ministry is about intelligent women pursuing God in faithful community. We believe that God invites everyone into his kingdom, and calls everyone to his restoration. We will explore together what this means for us in our daily decision-making, our identity constructions and our life pursuits through scripture, sharing, and critical engagement with ourselves, each other and the world.

Arts

Arts Ministry looks to love the community and culture of this city. We hope to understand art within the context of Christianity and vice versa. We will be going to exhibitions, exploring different mediums and have social outings.

Musical Worship

Worship ministry seeks to offer a space of powerful praise and strong fellowship. We strive to learn what it means to be true worshippers of the Lord, even amidst trials and uncertainties.

Sports

Sports Ministry is a place to learn, experience, and share the Gospel. By living out the Gospel, we hope to proclaim His love to those that share our common interest in sports. By integrating the Gospel into sports, we hope to bolster each other’s faith in Christ.

Outreach

Outreach ministry provides an opportunity for our fellowship to share God’s love and proclaim the Gospel through serving the communities around us. This year we will be continuing our services with the afterschool program at St. Felix Community Centre, and also be experimenting with a new outreach initiative each month. Additionally, we start the month off with a bible study focusing on a theme of outreach, and end the month with a time of sharing, reflection, prayer, and encouragement.

Prayer

Prayer ministry is where we discover and learn the reality and power of God through prayer. We pray to renew our lives by the gospel and for God to reveal himself and his love to the people in our lives, the campus and the city.

Christian Literature

Christian Literature Ministry is a space where we study Scriptural truths in non-Scriptural texts. We gather together to discuss the texts as well as any other questions we may have about Christianity. In doing this we hope to gain new insight and perspective into God’s Word. We encourage all to come; you do not need to be a book buff.

If you'd like to get in touch with any of our ministry leaders, send us an email at hello@utccf.com and we'll put you in touch with the right person.

The Leadership

The UTCCF executive committee is a group of CCF'ers who have volunteered their time and effort to serve the fellowship. They work closely with the small group and ministry leaders, and coordinate and provide direction for UTCCF. The committee is elected annually after a thorough self-reflection and visioning process, set out in detail in our [ constitution ].

Although the committee is responsible for coordinating the fellowship, the whole CCF community is involved in running UTCCF.

Here's a little introduction to this year's committee:

Benjamin Chong

Ben Chong is a fourth year chemical engineering student. As the chair, he is responsible for overseeing the general affairs of the fellowship. Upon first glance he seems like a wholesome guy who has a big smile, is musically talented and volunteers at a soup kitchen. After digging into his past, you'll discover his rebellious haircut and worm eating experiences. When you talk to him, prepare to be confused by Singaporean phrases.

Isabella Huang

Isabella Huang, also affectionately known as Jessica, is your average engineering science student at U of T. When she is not dutifully serving as Vice Chair for CCF, you might find her in a lab doing unfathomable physics-y things, or (more likely) dabbling in some kind of aerobic dance class. She is uncontrollable around chips.

Emmanuel Tsang

Emmanuel "the Wildcard" Tsang is a third year architecture student. His main interests include an unhealthy obsession with all things Batman and fawning over sub-par superhero tv shows. As the large group coordinator, Emmanuel stands as the backbone of our fellowship, both mapping out the journey of the night and ensuring that everyone is comfortable.

Ivanne Cheng

Ivanne Cheng is a fourth year architecture student, taking on the role of Male Devotional Leader this year. Ivanne can often be found playing Smash (for hours), watching Game of Thrones, or singing offhandedly to himself. He has a startlingly sharp yelp, which he releases often (much to the surprise of those around him).

Michael Wong

Michael Nicodemus "GG" Wong is a fourth year comp sci/act sci student currently in his PEY year. As the social coordinator, he sees to the wellbeing of the leadership and ensures that our president doesn’t lose his head. He can be found roaming the halls of campus shaking his head at the unworthy and repressing his excitement for boardgames.

Hillary Ma

Hillary Ma is a fourth year accounting student serving as our outreach coordinator this year. Her hobbies include eating, watching food videos, squealing over dessert, and saving money. She is skilled in the art of finding on sale items, so approach her for free tips! She is also a widely renowned pun MAster, although honestly, except for the rare occasion, her puns are mediocre.

Joanne Gui

Joanne Gui is in fourth year life science, majoring in animal physiology. She's an animal lover (If you haven't guessed yet) and also one herself (Animal I mean), and her guilty pleasure is all things free. To score points with this lioness, one can offer to buy small soggy McDonald's fries (She might share with you!) or by sharing danky animal pics. Offering her talents in organization (perhaps also cheapness), she is the secretary treasurer of UTCCF.

Elizabeth Ching

Elizabeth Ching is a fourth year humanities student from Vic, recognizable by her piercingly high voice. She loves reading (Harry Potter), eating (cookies), and laughing (so loudly, she’s often told off for it). She’s our Female Devotional Leader this year — a position she holds close to her heart. Come hither, ye females.
