Pastor Philip Hovi and his family are new to our church.  They come to us from Hanmer where they have served in ministry as volunteers for many years.  Pastor Phil has been involved in ministry both at Valley Pentecostal Church in many different roles and in the community in which they lived.  He has a heart for evangelism and his desire is to see the Gateway to Life Church become an integral part of life in Little Current.

Some of the ministries that Pastor Phil has been involved with include Seniors ministry at Pioneer Manor, Chaplaincy at Memorial Hospital, Secretary of the Board at New Hope Outreach and the faith relations committe at Habitat for Humanity Sudbury.

His wife Christine has a passion for those who are weak and need a hand up.  As a DSW she is looking forward to working in the community and helping to make the lives of those struggling with everyday challenges arising from living with physical and mental disabilities.  She has worked for Christian Horizans for the past 25 years and is looking forward to a new chapter in her life serving on the island.



Gateway to Life Church is situated on beautiful Manitoulin Island in the town of Little Current which is the gateway to Manitoulin.  Little Current is the only year around access point to the Island as highway 6 runs through the community from Espanola.  The church is located just off of highway 6 on Vankoughnet Street right beside Gary's Resteraunt.


The heart of the church is to be a blessing to the community and provide a place where people can encounter the presence of the Holy Spirit.  We desire to work together with other believers in our community and on the Island to see God's glory spread across Manitoulin.

We would love to have you join us for worship if you are in the area and looking for a place to worship.  We are a small congregation with a big heart and are always happy to see new people come and join us.  We are affiliated with the Pentecostal Assemblies of Canada.  As you come to the island to spend time relaxing and refreshing your body mind, and soul, why not take some time and refresh your spirit as well.
