BENJI THOMAS
ELDER


Benji grew up in Toronto in a Christian home where at a young age, God’s sovereign hand reached into his life and granted him faith in Jesus and later, took baptism in the winter of 2003. Growing in the Lord, he was tested mostly through the loss of people in his life, and failure during his young adult years. It brought him to a low point where he began doubting God’s presence in his life. However, in retrospect, Benji understood that those experiences were necessary for restoring his joy in Jesus and has since, dedicated his life to be faithful to God's Word and serve the Lord. By God’s grace, with a renewed passion for the Lord, he co-planted Pluslife as one of the founding elders of the church. Benji is married to the love of his life, Meera, and the two of them faithfully serve Pluslife Church, praying that the Gospel of Jesus Christ would change lives and glorify God.

JOEL MATHEW
ELDER


Joel was born in Saudi Arabia and then later, immigrated to Canada with his family at age eleven. All his life, he grew up in a Christian home and has been part of a local church. In the summer of 2005, Joel gave his life to Jesus and took baptism. However, he struggled and failed in sin as a young teenager, and it wasn’t until his early twenties when God rekindled his first love toward Jesus, brought joy and delight in Christ, and drew him to all the riches found in God’s Word. Seeing the Gospel change his own life, Joel wanted to see the same in others. In 2014, with the support and blessing of his family, he co-planted Pluslife in his parents' basement as one of the founding elders of the church. Joel is married to his wife and best friend, Sharon, and together, they love the Lord and serve Pluslife Church believing that Jesus Christ is mighty to save sinners for the praise of God’s glorious grace.
