Executive Summary 

Rhema Christian Ministries of Canada Inc. (Rhema) is a registered charitable and not-for-profit organization located in Toronto, Canada, with a mandate to Change & Affect Lives through the enhancement and the improvement of the spiritual, social, and economic climate of the city of Toronto and ultimately the country of Canada. Established in the fall of 1999 by Orim M. Meikle, the organization has touched the lives of thousands from a variety of social and ethnic backgrounds within the Greater Toronto Area, across the country and around the globe.   

Unique to Rhema is its comprehensive approach to modern day living. Coining the contemporary term holistic living, Rhema is incorporating all aspects of living into one essential organization. These services are dedicated to the promotion of physical well – being, spiritual well – being, and the economic empowerment of the individual with the visionary goal of “empowering people to live better lives. 

Through the expansion plans contemplated herein, Rhema is seeking to strategically position itself to supply the demands of today’s generation for wholesome work, commercial, entertainment and residential environments. The organization’s rapid growth and appeal in its relatively short history has created the need for the development of a community campus. This campus includes a multi-purpose/multi use conference center complete with music and television production facilities, educational and meeting rooms, catering, and event facilities. Multiple wings within this facility will provide services to the many children and youth who have come to call Rhema their community, recreational and educational center. This same facility will also house corporate and administrative head offices, for the day-to-day activities of the organization. 

In keeping with its mission to provide products and services which meet people at their point of need, Rhema seeks to construct a Community Life Center. This state-of-the-art center is designed to address the recreational and social needs of our local community. Through innovative programming and activities, the center aims to touch many lives by creating the necessary balance between spiritual and social development, while providing a necessary outlet for thousands of families that are seeking recreation and relaxation in a safe and wholesome environment. 

Educational development is a significant component of Rhema’s message of holistic empowerment. As such, it is seeking to develop leading edge educational facilities ranging from daycare through to a life-long learning campus. By pursuing and providing educational excellence through facilities such as The King’s College Preparatory School, The School for The Performing Arts, The Training & Development Centre, and much more, this phase of Rhema’s developmental will serve as a bridge for those desirous of educational excellence yet are unable to carry the astronomical costs often associated with such learning. Within these institutions students from every walk and age of life will be able to discover their life’s purpose and true destiny.  

To address the need for affordable health care, Rhema is seeking to develop a World Healing Center, complete with hospital-like facilities, rehabilitation center and counseling services. This facility is designed to address the needs of the infirmed, those that have been incarcerated and are seeking to be reintegrated into society, along with those who are searching for the encouragement and direction which comes with professional and empathetic counsel. With a strong focus on healing and rehabilitation, the Center aims to procure wholeness for all who access its services. 

The final phase of the Rhema development will address affordable housing for families and the elderly within the community. With a passion to serve the elderly, Rhema will endeavor to provide housing for senior citizens through complexes which provide the best in care and quality for those entering their golden years. Rhema believes that these retirement living complexes should be state of the art facilities designed to serve the elderly with excellence, dignity, and care.  

With the development of these facilities coupled with their current growth projections, Rhema will be positioned to affect the lives of many in the coming years. We believe that the services provided through the various facilities will ultimately produce the best quality of life for those who are searching for true meaning in life.
