Marc Nzikobari

Church Planter - East york/Scarborough

City of Origin: Mungwa, burundi, Africa

Before coming to Toronto Marc and his wife Cesarie planted 27 churches, a Secondary School, and 5 rural anti-poverty projects in 14 years of ministries in Africa. Marc's three ministry pillars turned around balanced diet, sound gospel and quality education for all. In Canada Marc discovered that Human beings everywhere equally struggle with flesh, forgiveness and reconciliation. He considers his presence in Canada and especially in Toronto where the entire world meets as a bonus to his life. For him it’s a land of opportunity for service while marveling at God’s grace among his people. Compared to their past ministry Toronto is remarkably the greatest challenge worthy of taking. He is glad serving in Scarborough, a highly multicultural neighborhood where most distant cultures such Asian, European and African communities do meet for Bible studies, Meals and Kids movies. The Nzikobari’s pray for visible churches fully committed to remind people that there is the Lord Jesus, the Saviour and God the Father worthy to be worshipped and served. Marc communicates in French, English, Swahili and 2 tribal languages. ​
