Peter Mahaffey was born in the Philippines as a MK (missionary kid) but grew up in Toronto as a PK (pastor’s kid). In grade 10 the Lord got a hold of his life and little did he know that that would lead to pastoral ministry in the future. In April 2019, he had the joy of graduating from Heritage College and Seminary with a B.R.S And M.T.S, and in March 2019, after being on staff as an associate pastor for almost four years at Grace Fellowship Church Rexdale, he was called by Royal York Baptist Church to be their pastor. Peter has a love for the Church of Jesus Christ and a passion to make known the surpassing worth of Jesus through his preaching. He is happily married to his incredible wife Gracie who has been by his side through thick and thin.
